Get ready for a summer of fun for all the family

Bursting with spectacular performance, art, music and family fun, our summer series is a beacon of welcome for the whole family.

This summer, our You Belong Here programme explores why we all feel the very human need to belong in our communities and our spaces.

For younger audiences, animated paintings and music take us to a fairy tale-like world in Mimewave’s Home, inspired by creator Anastasiia Liubchenko’s story of leaving Ukraine to find a new home in the Netherlands.

Jeppe Hein’s much-loved Appearing Rooms fountain returns for some respite from the (hopefully!) sunny weather. A summer favourite, the fountain shoots jets of water into the air to create rooms that disappear as quickly as they emerge.

On our free Riverside Stage, we’re collaborating with some of London’s most exciting artists and collectives to explore how to create spaces for conversation, connection and community-building through live music, performance, dance, fashion and more. Get grooving as the Just Vibez collective brings the sounds and rhythms of Carnival to the Riverside Stage.
