Event Description

The Southbank Centre's Festival of Britain concludes with a weekend of events, many of which are free, incorporating disability arts festival Liberty (Sat 1-5pm; also at the National Theatre 1-7.30pm).

Saturday features performances from deaf and disabled artists including ska and reggae artists La Rebla Fam, dance from Deaf Men Dancing and juggling from Juggle Deaf.

On Sunday the Twentieth Century Society explores the design legacy of the 1951 Festival of Britain, and visitors are invited to take part in VoiceLab's 'Big Sing' to close the festival (Sun 4pm). This mass performance event takes place across the Southbank Centre site, with choirs serenading visitors with sea shanties at the Thames-side beach huts, English madrigals at the Queen Elizabeth Hall rooftop garden, Welsh and Scottish folk songs at the dry stone walls, along with songs inspired by the 1951 Festival of Britain
