The free event will host a range of artists including top choreographer Mark Smith's Deaf Men Dancing, with both afternoons displaying an array of music and cabaret, outdoor arts and dance, and fun for children.

The festival comes just in time before the official celebration marking 1 year to go to the London 2012 Paralympic games, and just before International Paralympic Day on the 8th September.

Boris Johnson, London's Mayor, hailed the festival, "The Liberty festival is a superb showcase of the work that is being devised by disabled artists offering a taster of some of the exciting work that will be a part of the celebrations taking place throughout the year."

Jude Kelly, Artistic Director at Southbank Centre, said,"Liberty also gives us a taste of the amazing projects that we can expect to see next year in Unlimited, a Cultural Olympiad celebration of the artistic achievements of deaf and disabled artists."

This will be a fun-filled weekend! Let us know if you'll be there!
