London WondergroundThe splendid London Wonderground Spiegeltent returns for a fourth year, bringing Coney Island-style attractions and cabaret performed in the shadow of the Southbank Centre. Transforming the riverside site into an amusement ground, it entices visitors in with fairground rides, circus shows and a programme of international cabaret, music and fringe theatre. In its inaugural year the festival drew over 800,000 visitors (including Madonna and 15 members of her entourage), and presented 277 different performances from 46 different acts. This year's line up has yet to be announced but previous shows have included Limbo, record breaking beat boxer Schlomo, Grammy-nominated, Olivier award-winning alternative cabaret performers The Tiger Lillies, and House of Burlesque, so expect more in the way of excellent cabaret, circus and kids' shows.
