Watch This Space FestivalThe National Theatre's free festival of outdoor entertainment, Watch This Space, returns this summer with an array of theatre, fire, circus, juggling, music, dance and street performance. Split into ten weeks and taking place around Waterloo, Lambeth and Southwark, the festival kicks off with The Sneakers by Half Human Theatre, a comic and theatrical show with foot stompin', pop 'n' rock classics and silly headgear. Further week one highlights include Magic Moments, which sees the Mobile Sewing Company perform chic illusions and impromptu fashion alternations on top of a bicycle; Church Fete Games, including tug 'o' war, egg 'n' spoon and the three-legged race; and Sienta La Cabanza, where Fafa the hairdresser provides once-in-a-lifetime makeovers. For the complete line-up visit the National Theatre's official website.
