If you've been down on London’s South Bank recently you may have noticed something rather odd just near the London Eye. A whopping great inflatable upside-down purple cow has landed in Jubilee Gardens.
This, however, is not a random landing. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet Udderbelly. The inflated bovine is in fact a 400-seat venue (also present at the Edinburgh Festival) which has returned to host one of London’s most loved and varied festivals, showcasing the best in music, comedy, circus, theatre and family shows to name a few.
The 6th consecutive year of the cow promises us a jam-packed programme of top acts including Beardyman: One Album Per Hour and Four Screws Loose In Screwtopia! You can check out a full programme of events here.
Tonight, me and the girls are off to see Luisa Omielan and find the answer to that very important question - What Would Beyonce do?! . I was gutted to miss out on Luisa's Soho Theatre run last year so I'm looking forward to having a great big Udder-belly laugh later as she compares her life to the fabulous Queen Bey with hilarious effect.

Udderbelly is also a great place to graze with organic food and a wide range of ciders and the like available pre-and post-show. Flop into a deck chair, grab a cold beer and take in the sights and sounds including some spectacular views of London.
Tickets are selling out fast. Meander down to banks of the River Thames to catch this welcome addition to London’s skyline and take in some fantastic festival action – it is tremendous fun.
Moo runs the world? (Girls).
