GDIF 2023 | London’s free, annual outdoor performing arts festival 25 August-10 September 2023

Presented By Desperate Men


27 August | 2.50pm & 5.05pm | Cutty Sark Gardens


Desperate Men return to GDIF with their signature comic, radical and spontaneous style.  

In this, perhaps their final show, they hand over to the next generation. 42 years in the making, it’s time to get ready for what promises to be a historic street theatre swan song, as ranting oldies collide with Generation Z.
