This summer the Southbank Centre have asked artists, designers, architects and community groups to help turn it into London’s friendliest neighbourhood. Join in with activities, watch events and explore the colourful, imaginative free installations around the site.
Some of the events include;
London Swing Dance Society
“Come to the London Swing Dance Society for all things swing dance and a night of scintillating jazz, cool swing, hot jive and scorching rock’n’roll.
The evening kicks off with beginners and intermediate lindy hop classes from 7.45pm to 8.30pm. Features a live band, swing DJs and a vintage dance cabaret hosted by dance champion Simon Selmon (as seen on ‘Dancing on Ice’). Runs approximately three hours. Suitable for ages 18+.”
Standard: £12.50 (Wonder Seats £17.50)
The Queen’s Knickers
Get your knickers in a twist with this classic comedy for wise young children.
What would you do if you lost the Queen’s pants? Dilys, the Queen’s maid, is the royal custodian of her Majesty’s ‘intimate apparel’, otherwise known as the Queen’s knickers. She guards HRH’s smalls as if they were the crown jewels. She would be mortified if anyone got a glimpse of them.
But one day the knickers go missing, causing a national state of emergency and a diplomatic incident of catastrophic proportions. A celebration of the garments we all wear but never show, this children’s classic is inventively told by two elastic actors.
This sell-out show returns to Southbank Centre with a new, updated production.
Date: 06/08/2013 – 20/08/2013
