After 9 years, this festival will no longer be taking place. An annual festival curated by Illuminate Productions to celebrate the history and culture of Bankside. Bankside is the area close to the Southbank with winding medieval side streets and home to Shakespeare's Globe and Tate Modern. The area will come alive for a two-week long\u00a0arts festival. Many of the events are free; so if you're too skint to make it up to the cobbled streets of Edinburgh in August, you can get your fill of the artistic, the wonderful and weird in London this Summer instead.
