London International Mime Festival

Running since 1977, the London International Mime Festival features the best mime acts from around the world. It covers just about every facet of visual theatre you can imagine. Whether you’re there for the classic mime, the puppetry or the explosive feats of physical prowess, there’s always something fantastic to see. There are also workshops in maskwork, mime, and clowning, to name just a few.

The London International Mime Festival returns with four captivating theatre shows, featuring eccentric puppeteers, Olivier Award-winning performers, and the rising stars of Belgium’s acclaimed contemporary theatre scene. Plus, a film screening about a circus knife-thrower takes place in the cinema with a live piano accompaniment.
