spiegely small.jpgWe are delighted to be able to welcome back the Spiegeltent for another year of spectacular cabaret, circus, puppetry, comedy, dance, music and family events.


However we still need to raise an additional £60,000 in order to ensure that the tent will remain part of the Festival for years to come and to safeguard the Arts Council Catalyst Match Fund.  So please continue to show your support - please visit MyDonate page and give whatever you feel you can. See you there in October!
