A “Key Cultural and Entertainment” festival will help kick off the summer of relaxation in the West End.

The Underbelly Festival will have its mirror tent in Cavendish Square near John Lewis on Oxford Street.

The festival runs from July 1st to September 26th and aims to bring people back to the region, stimulate the economy and create 120 temporary full and part-time jobs.

Acts include Basil Brush and the family circus show Hotel Paradiso, as well as West End improvisation favorites The Showstoppers, who host musical adventures for children.

CBBC and Crackerjack presenters Sam & Mark make their Underbelly Festival debut with On The Road Show.

Bernie Dieter’s cabaret show Berlin Underground is the headliner of the festival.

Comedians include the moderator of the BBC quiz show Lightning Zoe Lyons and the star of last year’s Royal Variety Show Daliso Chaponda.

The tent has room for 500 people and there will be food and drink stalls with a total capacity of 2,000 people at all times.

The family festival includes cabaret, comedy, music and theater. People need tickets to see the shows, but they can visit the stands without booking.

The Westminster City Council planning committee gave the organizers permission to pitch the 24-diameter tent. (Tuesday, May 25th).

However, they heard that residents of the only block of flats in the square were concerned about noise.

The organizers will pitch the tent farthest from the Harcourt House block of flats.

The performances end from Sunday to Wednesday at 10 p.m. and Thursday to Saturday at 11.30 p.m.

The police wanted a 24-hour security service on the square because of the “high level of crime”.

The Parks and Garden Trust also rejected the plan.

Ed Bartlam, the co-founder of the Underbelly Festival, said it aims to be accessible and affordable.

The team has organized Christmas events in Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square.

Mr. Bartram said: “We have robust noise protection plans.”

He said there had been numerous site visits to the police to address their concerns and the team had solid plans for the administration.

Underbelly is also partnering with Connection Crew, which provides a way out of homelessness for people to get the site up and running.

Last year, plans to demolish an underground car park on the site were approved. There will be rooms for shops, gyms or medical centers.

Councilor Guthrie McKie said, “This is supposed to attract people from all over London, not just Westminster. If we shorten (hours) it will not be viable.”

Chairman Jim Glen said, “It is so important that we bring the West End back.”

Selina Short, member of the committee, commented, “It’s a very elegant temporary building.”
