A Spiegeltent literally translates as a ‘Hall of Mirrors’ and originates from Belgium in the 1920s. These highly decorative, travelling dance halls used to tour Europe, providing a stunning environment for music and dance events to take place. Salon Perdu, the Spiegeltent that will visit Canterbury, has toured worldwide including the Sydney International Festival and festivals across Europe.

We are bringing in heating for the two weeks and will endeavour to keep it as warm as possible but please be aware that in extreme cases the temperature may drop a fraction.



All seating is unreserved. We ask that any patrons using a wheelchair please notify the Festival Office on 01227 452853 and seats will be reserved for you.
