National to make a splash at River Stage Festival

Published 22 August 2017

This weekend The River Stage Festival comes to an end, with a jam-packed bank holiday weekend of free music, performance and workshops from the National Theatre.

The National Theatre’s River Stage Festival is in its second year and offers audiences five free weekends of the best and brightest entertainment from some of the UK’s leading arts and culture organisations. Following spectacular weekends hosted by The Glory, HOME, Manchester, WOMAD and Rambert, this weekend the National Theatre take to the stage for three days, bringing the festival to a triumphant close.

Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre said: “I am delighted that this range of partners from across the country have joined us this year for another exceptional River Stage Festival. The assortment of performance, music, dance and workshops free for all ages is a vibrant and vital part of the National Theatre programme this summer.”

London’s Night Czar, Amy Lamé, who will be appearing on Friday night, said: “In the summer months the South Bank really comes alive with Londoners and visitors enjoying fantastic restaurants, market stalls and street theatre.”

“The return of the River Stage adds to the buzz with an incredible season of free outdoor entertainment. From world class dance and circus acts, to workshops and DJs, there’s something for everyone – so make the most of the summer nights and soak up some exciting new culture on the Thames as the sun goes down.”

The line-up this weekend includes performances by Lamé, DJ duo Concrete Disco, brand new interative children’s show Goblin’s Peter And The Wolf, and 8 piece jazz band Little Bulb Theatre.
