National Theatre River Stage 2017

The National Theatre's River Stage returns this summer bringing an eclectic combination of theatre, DJs, family fun, vibrant dance, outdoor cinema, workshops and the very best live music acts - there's nowhere better to soak up the sun and the atmosphere!

Featuring take-over weekends all summer long, there will be something for everyone out on the river front.

There's also a host of cool summer pop-ups at the River Stage, including a vintage ice cream van selling soft serve ice cream, gelato and soft drinks, the beautifully lush and relaxing Garden Bar at the Green Room, a pizza van with a wood-fired oven, in a vintage Citroen van (!) and the Apothecary Cocktail Bar - a hidden watering hole serving up nostalgic craft creations inspired by the melting pot of 80s New York counterculture...
