The Winter Festival is back and we are transforming Southbank Centre for the festive season. Our new Christmas Market lays out the most delicious festive food, handmade craft gifts and warming drinks. Or you can cosy up at our Rekorderlig Cider Lodge, enjoy spectacular views at our Viewing Deck Bar or get warm at our Christmas Tree Cafe.
Alongside the market, get lost in the Christmas Tree Maze or jump aboard the Southbank Centre Express. Step inside Royal Festival Hall and experience the breathtaking Slava’s Snowshow, enter LA SOIRÉE’s world of circus and burlesque or enjoy a fabulous show from Fascinating Aïda. Catch Dave Gorman’s brand new live comedy stylings, laugh in the face of cat-astrophe with Meow Meow’s provocative brand of deliciously non-traditional holiday cheer or gasp at gravity-defying acrobatics from Timber!
Throughout The Winter Festival, Hayward Gallery presents MIRRORCITY: London artists on fiction and reality. Stop by to see recent work and new commissions by key emerging and established artists working in the capital today, who seek to address the challenges, conditions and consequences of living in a digital age.
And don’t forget to look out for the giant rabbits popping up across the site...
