Spiegeltent by nightThanks to the support of so many of you we have hit our funding target matched by the Arts Council's Catalyst Scheme! 

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

This is the final year of the Catalyst Funding, so from now on - if we want the Spiegeltent - we'll have to keep fundraising and ask for your help to do so. So please continue to show your support - please visit MyDonate page and give whatever you feel you can. See you there in October!

Since the age of 18 Kora master Sadio Cissokho has been touring the world performing the beautiful music of the Casamance region of Senegal. He hails from the Cissokho Grioti family who have been the musical carriers of history and tradition, entrusted by the Royal Mandingue Empire as advisers since the 14th century. No stranger to the UK, Sadio has previously performed both at Womad and Glastonbury Festivals. Sadio leads his 5-strong ensemble in repertoire that mixes the traditional with modern creating a performance which seamlessly integrates all the elements into a cutting-edge Senegalese sound.

‘This is Casamance Rock, 700 years of griot history plugged into an amplifier.’ (
