Southbank Centre - Festival of Love 2016


Festival of Love

Festival of Love is a celebration of the force that makes the world go round, and how love can make good changes in the world. The Southbank Centre site is transformed by installations and pop-up eateries, along with two months of love-related performances, talks and free events.

We had a great time celebrating love and its many forms this summer 2016, with hundreds of artists, communities and partners joining us to present inspiring shows and family activities.

We enjoyed a packed programme of dance, music, art, dance and performance – over half of which was free. Festival of Love is now over for 2016.
