Storytelling wizards Crick Crack Club are bringing their magical touch to South Bank this summer, in the form of a flag-bedecked yurt.
Some of the UK's best performance storytellers, including Ben Haggarty and Nell Phoenix, will be spinning yarns and stretching imaginations inside the tented theatre.
Afternoon performances are for the whole family —aimed as much at adults as the children they bring— but things take a darker, ruder turn when evening falls and only adults are allowed. See the full programme here. There's also a pop-up shop and a starlit bar.
The festival culminates on 2 August with a Wildman competition. Get creative and take inspiration from the tales told throughout the festival: think yetis, cartoon characters and folklore. The best wild man, wild woman and wild child costumes will win prizes, but you must register in advance to take part.
