A five-month festival of international cabaret, music and circus will take over part of the South Bank from May 8, with Australian circus act Cantina headlining The London
Wonderground event.

The 600-capacity Spiegeltent will be at its heart, with circus acts and side shows bringing a taste of Coney Island to the south side of the river until September 30.

Meanwhile, the E4 Udderbelly Festival, with its distinctive, upsidedown purple cow tent venue, is under way and hosts music and comedy events until July 8 alongside the Spiegeltent.
