Four months of free fun at London’s premiere free outdoor venue
Now in its thirteenth year, the More London Free Festival is again bringing an impressive line-up of events and performances to the concrete amphitheatre below the Mayor’s leaning glass blob of an office on the South Bank.
Running June 3 to September 24, the season begins with a mix of live music and fringe theatre performance (June 3-June 26), including a take on ‘Pride and Prejudice’ from the redoubtable Pantaloons.
From June 29-July 26 an LED screen will show full coverage of major sporting events such as Wimbledon (Jun 29-Jul 12), the Tour de France (Jul 26), the British Golf Open (Jul 16-19) and The Ashes (Jul 8-12, 16-20).
Then Gods and Monsters Theatre present slimmed down Greek tragedies ‘Women of Troy’ and kids’ show ‘Captain Showoff!’ by way of theatre (August 5-30). The final focus is film, and from September 2-24 there’s a schedule of free screenings, from recent hits (‘Still Alice’) to cult classics (‘Ghostbusters’).
In addition there will be a pop-up restaurant named London Riviera that’s set to offer ‘five months of delicious food and drink inspired by French Riviera chic and Miami glamour’ from 8am to 10pm daily.
All events are free and no booking is required, but we recommend you arrive early and bring a cushion. For full event details visit www.morelondon.com
