Until January 10, The Winter Festival is once again transforming Southbank Centre into a Christmas wonderland. Here you’ll find markets stretching from the riverside to Southbank Centre Square, chock full of tasting events offering samples of cheese, chocolate, and wine.
There are also two art exhibitions to look forward to at Hayward Gallery: Ana Mendieta: Traces, and Dayanita Singh: Go away closer. And, besides the amazing and bustling markets, cafes, restaurants and bars, there is a fantastic schedule of cultural performances. You can experience the breathtaking Slava’s Snowshow or watch the incredible acrobats of Folds flip and pirouette through an amazing set made completely of cardboard and paper. There’s also a colourful performance for 2-4 year olds, called White, and Fascinating Aïda, returning with a brand new show.
From food to culture to winter charm, there’s something for everyone here.
