London Wonderground

The playground for the people returned for a fifth year in 2016. It featured the best in cabaret, circus, comedy, music and kids' shows to delight and amaze, all taking place in a dazzling 1920s-style Spiegeltent. 

Indoor and outdoor bars, delicious bites to eat, a bandstand, fairground rides and sideshows at London Wonderground topped off this summer sizzler.

Headlining London Wonderground in 2016 was Cirque Alfonse’s Barbu, following their hit Southbank Centre production of Timber. Daring, daft and sexy as hell, this is cabaret as you’ve never seen it before.
