Bank Holiday Revels on the South Bank: River Stage Festival 2017

If, like SEEN, you’ve been walking along the South Bank this summer, you could hardly have missed the outdoor performances, and delicious food and drink outside the National Theatre.

This weekend is the last weekend of the National Theatre’s River Stage Festival, five free weekends of the best and brightest entertainment on the South Bank. The Festival will end with the National Theatre weekend takeover, where visitors can expect a mix of live music, DJs, as well as an outdoor cinema screening, accompanied by a host of delicious food and drink pop-ups.

London’s first Night Czar Amy Lamé will be getting the party started on Friday night with a DJ set, followed by family friendly performances and music throughout Saturday to Monday, including the chance to see a free outdoor screening of the National’s acclaimed production of Twelfth Night from earlier this year, starring Tamsin Greig.

Whilst enjoying the entertainment this bank holiday, visitors will be able to grab a drink or bite to eat from one of the summer pop-ups, including delicious cocktails from the Apothecary Bar; cold beer from the Understudy Riverside Pop Up Bar; slow cooked beef brisket baps from Brisket and Bird and delicious gourmet pizza from Pizza Van.

The 2017 River Stage Festival has already seen: The Glory, HOME, Manchester, WOMAD and Rambert ‘takeover’ the River Stage throughout July and August.
