Winter

9 Nov 2018 – 6 Jan 2019

See Southbank Centre transformed this winter with magical family shows, markets, twinkling lights, festive fun and other seasonal delights.

Eat, drink and be merry beside the River Thames with the return of our enchanting Winter Market and pop-ups, offering the very best in global street food, craft beers, cocktails, artisan gifts and more.

Don't miss our brilliant Christmas shows. Experience the thrills and daredevil entertainment of a turn-of-the-century circus including sensational animal puppetry with Circus 1903. Or bring the family to see Rumpelstiltskin, a fantastic fairy tale with theatrical spectacle, rocking music and supreme silliness.

Take part in free performances, workshops and family activities throughout December, with storytelling, dancing, music and crafts for all ages. As darkness falls, be entertained by sparkling comedy and cabaret nights.
