Spiegeltent and Children’s Festival
Harrogate | home of engagement
Roll up, roll up! The magic of the mirrored tent returns in June 2018, as HIF’s Spiegeltent programme casts its spell over Harrogate with a smorgasbord of sensational acts under its exquisitely exotic canvas, including Guest Curator Ayanna Witter-Johnson, Hacienda DJ Graeme Park, House of Burlesque and Gypsy Queens.
History, Science and Art come alive in the Children’s Festival featuring the UK’s finest entertainers and authors, with a series of captivating shows, as the Festival presents the UK’s most sought after authors, museum experiences and attractions. Taking place in the magical world of the Spiegeltent – Europe’s oldest travelling tent –we invite audiences to enter the mirrored walls to uncover the mystery of those subjects children have an enduring fascination for: sword fighting, bears and fairy-tales!
The Spiegeltent will be situated on Crescent Gardens, opposite the Council Offices.
Spiegeltents are from an ancient theatrical tradition, which took entertainers and shows on the road across Europe. It boasts wooden floors, mirrored walls and stained glass complete with luscious red velvet seating booths and lamped lighting, complete with dancefloor and bottle bar.
