A Celebration of Art, Theatre and Music at the One and Only London Bridge Festival

Often dubbed “Edinburgh Fringe in the center of London”, the London Bridge Festival is a cultural festival of great scale and significance. Held from the 10th of July to the 25th, this two week performing arts and entertainment festival comprises of nearly a hundred events that are conducted in 50 venues across the historic London Bridge area. First organized to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the iconic British landmark, the festival has now become an annual event that attracts locals and tourists alike with its diverse repertoire of genres and talented participants.

With the active participation of established London acts and up and coming artists, the festival encompasses every possible area of entertainment including film, theatre, comedy, music, art, poetry  and street shows while various competitions and awards are also handed out to the best performers. Highlights in past instalments of the festival included a comedy line up complete with Marcus Brigstocke, Stephen K Amos, Stewart Lee Brendon Burns and Shappi Khorsandi  while theatre productions from The Southwark Playhouse were also part of the program. The Zipcar Theatre group also garnered much acclaim for its use of theatrical, comedic and cabaret elements in a vibrant performance that took place inside 12 vehicles.

The short story writing contest was also a popular event  as it was only second to the 48-hour film making competition where participants were asked to shoot, edit and present a short film on a surprise subject in a mere two days. Photography challenges are also part of the festival’s itinerary while dances from various London dance circles such as the Cloud Dance Company also grace the festival stage. A quirky London walking tour courtesy of the Sock Mob was another popular attraction at the festival in addition to Carioka jam sessions and other exhilarating musical performances. Offering its own award ceremonies to celebrate the finest acts in the festival, the Boris Awards takes prime position among the honours as it recognizes and honours categories such as Best New Comedy Act and Best Drama.
