Wig Out!

It’s time to drag yourselves into central London to experience Pop Up London, a festival of arts and performance as part of the London Mayor’s #Lets Do London. From Saturday 23rd October to Sunday 31st the streets of London are coming alive with performance, music, comedy and Wig Out!

Pop Up London is a free festival of family-friendly performances taking place across central London during  October half-term (23 to 31 October 2021).  

Part of the Mayor’s Let’s Do London campaign to encourage visitors back into the heart of our city and  support jobs, Pop Up London will see over 200 artists performing in public spaces including Trafalgar  Square, Spitalfields and Canary Wharf.  

The capital’s rich cultural diversity will be celebrated with Brazilian drumming, Cantonese story-telling and  Caribbean steelpans, alongside performances that explore themes of climate change, the digital age and  gender stereotypes. 

Delivered in partnership with Battersea Arts Centre and Found in Music, Pop Up London will support the  capital’s creative freelancers who have been hit hard by the pandemic.
