Underbelly Festival brings you world-class entertainment at our beautiful pop-up festival right in the heart of London.
Underbelly Festival is London’s original cultural pop-up festival.
Packed to the brim with all new Family Fest, Underbelly Lates, Podcast Live, and the best live circus, cabaret, comedy and music, we’ve got it all. You can enjoy international street food, after work drinks in one of London’s largest outdoor bars and a true festival atmosphere on the banks of the Thames.
Created in 2009, on the bank of the Thames between the London Eye and Royal Festival Hall, the festival has become a recognised and much anticipated part of London’s vibrant summer calendar of cultural events.
Underbelly Festival is known as both London’s affordable festival of live entertainment and a festival with multiple strands of programming which cater for all ages, all demographics and importantly those that might not otherwise go into a traditional theatre.
Underbelly Festival is fun, accessible, informal and suited to an incredibly wide audience that wants to be entertained in the truest sense of the word.
Underbelly Festival is also about socialising, whether that’s with family, friends or co-workers. We provide a home for award winning street food operators and we create a wonderful, safe, alfresco F&B environment at the festival.
Since it’s opening in 2009, Underbelly Festival has sold over 1.2M tickets to shows and welcomed millions more to its festival site for socialising and free summer entertainment.
