A Simple Space - Sydney Festival

The best circus/acrobatic/cheer-leading performance! Excellent!!! Better than Cirque and other recent visiting gymnasts to our shores.

great atmosphere and lots of nice things to try. Easy to get to and the river looked lovely with all the lights at night.

I love Wonderground and Udderbelly and the bars around it. What I wasn't so keen on was House of Burlesque. I found the compere quite stage school esque, the acts corny and altogether not the best burlesque show I've been to. It gets points for atmosphere but less for the actual show itself.

Went to see limbo tonight. Was excellent. Great talent and a real delight to see human acts such as these. The act with the bendy poles is fantastic. Would go and see it again. Have seen cantina previously and it's better than that. Also seen a couple of other acts including the R Club which is not really worth the... More

Went to the Saturday afternoon matinee show whilst in London visiting our daughters. Very unusual 'circus' type show which we enjoyed from start to finish. Great acts and the musicians were excellent. The tent is quite small so audience small also making it a little more of an intimate feel. The place was packed out but we got excellent stalls... More

Jaw-droppingly good. This show is fantastic. I went to a Cantina last year which was by the same producers. I loved it so much I couldn't wait to see Limbo. It didn't disappoint. Weird, wonderful, dangerous and breathtaking all at the same time. It's basically impossible to explain. It has to be seen to be believed. Don't miss out. You... More

This was an amazing show which gets better and better as it goes on. We sat in the stalls and had a great view. The performers are multi-talented in their acrobatics, musicality and illusions. It's very different to anything else I've seen before but it's an experience that will have you smiling and laughing as well as a few jaw... More

Having seen the Limbo show at the Sydney festival, I knew how good it was and equally exciting the second time around. Best described as circus meets vaudeville meets burlesqe featuring acrobatics, hand balancing, contortionist, beatbox, sword swallowing and fire breathing, dancing- it just goes on and on. A very talented group of people giving it all they've got. Run... More

I love it here! I have celebrated my birthday here now twice. It's the sort of place you can let loads of people know you will be here on this date and who ever turned up on the day you know you will have fun. It's not supper cheap as far as drinks and food are concerned but you don't... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
