London’s biggest annual arts festival returns for 8 weeks of fringe and experimental theatre, comedy, acrobatics, spoken word, film,  podcast recordings cabaret and music.  The eight-week programme of events takes place in Waterloo in The Vaults and Network Theatre.

The line-up includes work in progress comedy sets from Liam Williams,  Helen Duff and Eleanor Colville, and you can nab tickets for those each of those for a fiver.

If West End musicals are too saccharine and expensive, then shows like The People’s Rock: A Musical, and Great Again might be the antidote.

Immersive Theatre fans can get their fix on The Lifeboat, where the audience must solve puzzles to escape from a prison ship or  Wrecked a site-specific piece of theatre where the audience is invited inside a crashed card seconds after the accident to help Sam, the driver put the pieces of her life back together.

Other events include Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show The Red Bastard, storytelling show For A Black Girl , a live podcast recording starring the audience, short film screenings, silent disco and late shows.
