Riverside Melodies

Sing, dance and sway your weekend away to some of musical theatres’ greatest hits at Riverside Melodies presented by Live at South Bank. 

For Broadway and Disney fans, Riverside Melodies will showcase a host of singalong songs from beloved films and shows, such as Matilda, Aladdin, The Sound of Music, Hairspray, Grease and Beauty and the Beast for a day of toe-tapping musical theatre from 10am to 1pm at South Bank Parklands’ Riverside Green on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 March 2023.

Riverside Melodies is a free family-friendly event that will get the whole gang dancing. With performances across the weekend, this free family-friendly event will create an unmissable magical experience of sound and song that will have everyone singing on the rolling lawn by the riverside.

If you’ve worked up an appetite, pop up food and drink vendors will be serving an array of bite size brunch snacks. 

The best part? Entry is free. So sit back on the grassy knolls of Riverside Green and unleash your inner-musical persona with your family and friends.
