This event forms the finale of Shoreditch Fringe Festival, London’s newest festival which has just seen over 700 events packed into seven weeks.
Our Fringe Finale is being presented in partnership with Mayor of London and London 2012’s ‘Showtime’ programme - a huge programme of free events and celebrations to add to the excitement of 2012, including ones especially commissioned for a citywide programme of free events that will add to and complement the London 2012 Festival.
They include Secrets, with artists and performers transforming hidden and lesser known locations; Showtime, an outdoor arts festival in high streets, parks and open spaces around the capital; and BT London Live, bringing live action from the Games, as well as sporting activities and entertainment to Hyde Park, Victoria Park and Trafalgar Square.
