Hello & welcome to #ThursdayFriday!
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve spent a number of times at the Southbank Centre, enjoying an incredible concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall & most recently, enjoying The Comedy Store as part of the Udderbelly festival.
The Southbank Centre is an amazing hub of music, comedy, art, food & drink on the Thames overlooking one of the best views of London. So, today’s #5aday features my pick of what should be the centre of your attention at the Southbank Centre this summer.
- The Festival of Neighbourhood – take in installations curated in partnership with The Eden Project & the National Trust, large topiary structures & BeanoTown for the kids.
- Udderbelly – coming to the end of its tour, this giant purple upside down cow, is host to some cracking comedy acts from the Best of The Comedy Store to The Boy with Tape on His Face – More Tape.
- The Royal Festival Hall – an amazing space with many different places to enjoy the view, a drink & a bite to eat, such as the Skylon restaurant or the Central Bar.
- The Hayward Gallery – visit the Alternative Guide to the Universe, an exhibition created by artists, architects & scientists showcasing different ways of perceiving, describing & navigating the world around us.
- Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden designed by the Eden Project – enjoy the weather & Pimm’s o’clock in the al fresco surroundings of this roof garden with a stunning view.
5 reasons to pop by the Southbank Centre & soak up the atmosphere, culture & rays… & there are many more reasons this cultural spot should be the centre of your attention this summer!
