Wed through to Sunday until Sept 3rd, Gods and Monsters put on their version of Homer's Odyssey, staged as part of the London Bridge City Summer Festival, Phil Wilmott has once again created a fantastic evening of entertainment. The fist hour (there are three parts but you dont have to see them all...I recommend that you do! ) especially is suitable for young and old alike. Take a cushion (concrete is hard!), a warm rug (it can get chilly) and a picnic (or buy food locally) and settle down to watch the story of Odysseus unfold.

Myself, my daughter and my mum went to watch the Odyssey at The Scoop 16/8/17. We only stayed for the first act as we knew the rest wasn't likely to be suitable for children but it was unbelievably good.
My 7 year old was in tears of laughter for most of the performance-she especially loved the dog/baby and has been singing the songs repeatedly since!
I'd love to return to watch the whole performance, however, won't be in London until after it finishes. I will be looking out for further events at The Scoop though-brilliant venue and an amazing free show!

Perhaps surprisingly and despite the website warnings about no glass etc, there were lots of glass bottles and no stewards in sight at this event. Being surrounded by bars almost inevitable the arena was surrounded by rowdy youngsters, with little consideration for those trying to watch and listen to the opera. It's a shame because it is a great location, but I do think there should be more stewards and a quiet buffer zone marshalled between the bars and the arena

The London Bridge Summer Festival makes this a cosy place every day of the week during summer months. Thereby, enjoying lunch/dinner/breakfast at the nearby lawn is a perfect local way to enjoy the great view on the Tower Bridge without astronomous prices!

We were totally blown away by this beautiful venue in the heart of London. A 'scooped out' arena with fantastic FREE entertainment. It was such a treat to see a live band of such quality and for it not to cost a penny. Visited in June 2013.
