Founded in 1962, the brings three weeks of entertainment to dozens of venues across the capital. With over a hundred free events on the streets and more than fifty ticketed shows in its striking buildings, there is something for the whole family to enjoy. Go on walks, listen in on talks, take part in workshops, and watch world-class artists perform right up close.

St. Paul's Cathedral used to be the home of the festival's main shows, but now it has been usurped by the new built Bowler Hat. A dome shaped theatre with unique acoustics, you will be able to see shows such as a comical production of The Tin Soldier ballet, Apollo5 jazz, Laban Dance , the Silver Lining Circus , and much much more.

St Paul's hasn't been complete'y abandoned though; Seoul Metropolitan B-Boys Gamblerz Crew will be showing off their incredible moves, while London Symphony Orchestra will be giving a recital of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 and Penderecki's Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima.

Other indoor activities include a Choral Beatboxing Workshop at the Gresham Centre, Oompah Brass at The Gherkin , and the Science of Singing at Gresham College .

Soak up the sun of Devonshire Square as you watch perform Bench , an acrobatic sketch show, or join in an Alternative Commonwealth Games on Parliament Hill .

The festival lasts until the 17th July and ends with some Misunderstood Monsters , Swing Ninjas , and the Electric Swing Circus .
