18 September – 18 October - MERGE Bankside

Now in its fifth year, immersive arts festival MERGE returns to Bankside with a month-long programme set to transform the London riverside destination
Nicole Gordon
Deputy CEO


London SE1

This year’s diverse line-up includes major names and emerging talent from the UK and international art world. Using the rich heritage and contemporary culture of Bankside they will stage interactive installations, experimental theatre and live music; reinventing historic buildings and open spaces.

Make a wish in a bioluminescent wishing chamber, focus your mind to control a light and sound installation, enjoy live music on the Riverside Stage, take a look at never before seen images of the biggest stars from the 60s to the present day, and keep an eye out for a blue bunny.

MERGE Bankside is curated and produced by Illuminate Productions and is supported by Tate Modern and Better Bankside.
