As enjoyable as a trip to the theatre is, it would be a shame to waste the recent sunny weather inside a dark auditorium. The National Theatre recognise this, and have decided to put on a pop-up festival outside. Every Friday and Saturday, you can spend August Outdoors along the South Bank area, where there will be lots of free music, dance, galleries, and children's theatre.

To start off proceedings, The Half Human Theatre Company are performing Sneakers/Streetlights at 1pm & 6.30pm on the 2nd & 3rd August. Musically inclined and comically cabaret, the shows will involve a lot of sixties songs and foot-stomping.

Stuff & Things will present The Thinker. Meet Vernon Ponder, the man who never grew out of asking 'why?' about everything. Join him as he asks important questions such as why is cheese cheesy, and how many pints can you get out of a lake?

Next week on the 9th August, Joli Vyann and her dancing circus will perform; this will be followed by Pigeon Poo People on the 10th August, a show starring bird-like people. Or is it people-like birds?

You'll also get the chance to paint the town red without getting arrested for vandalism; Urban Canvas will be providing five hundred year old chalk to draw with on the pavement.

There will be plenty more to enjoy over the coming weeks, such as The Hot Potato Syncopators , The Caravan Gallery, and Curios Curios.
