Festival-goers can now buy tickets to see Katherine Ryan, James Acaster and The Horne Section at London's Southbank Centre

The iconic purple cow returns to London's Southbank centre bringing with it a slew of cattle puns and a three month programme of live comedy, circus and kids shows.

The Udderbelly Festival begins on Thursday 9 April and runs for a raucous three months until Sunday 19 July. Confirmed comedians include darling of Mock The Week James Acaster, satirist Richard Herring and Canadian Katherine Ryan with her witty examination of British pop culture, Glam Role Model.

For lovers of circus antics, juggling ensemble Circus Geeks lift the lid on life as a juggler in Beta Testing while Barely Methodical Troupe mix masculine behaviour patterns with physical theatre, turning back slaps into back flips in their show Bromance.

Kids can join the world's leading bubbleologist Louis Pearl as he mixes magic, science and artistry with plenty of bubbles in The Amazing Bubble Man while adults enjoy the delights of one of London's biggest outdoor bars. Oxcellent.
