The huge festival that is London this summer 2012 is starting to kick off in earnest, and yesterday I received a programme of events under the umbrella of Priceless London Wonderground.
Those clever impressario's behind the udderbelly present a brand new festival of 'marvels and curiosities' featuring the best in cabaret, circus, sideshow and music. Wonderground runs from May until September and I, for one, will be visiting at least one of the performances.
Here are some of the acts you can take in during the summer...
Meow Meow - this international singing sensation is the perfect post-modern showgirl and has had critically acclaimed shows in the West End.
The Royal Family of Strange People - a collection (if that is the right word to use here) of 'human oddities', more performance than freak-show with sword swallower The Space Cowboy, who holds eleven Guinness World Records and his most recent record saw him swallow eighteen swords in one go... plus others of course!
I didn't manage to get a ticket to Frisky & Mannish at the Edinburgh Fringe so I'm really tempted by them here where they are putting on Extra-Curricular Activities - their show is all about joy and laughter, oh and Pop Music. Should be fun!
Fascinating Aida are among the big name acts - five stars in The Times. There's drag acts, burlesque, circus performers, comics - really is a smorgasbord of entertainment.
