Spiegeltent Masquerade Ball

One of our 2013 high points, and sold out before any other event, the famous annual Spiegeltent masked ball returns for another night of dazzling revelry, mischievous mayhem and good ol’ fashion frolics inside the seductive Spiegeltent!

Tonight we have a very fine cast of cabaret performers, bands and DJs delivering a top notch evening of entertainment & music in this most beautiful of settings. All we ask is that you come in a wonderous creation, smart & dappa, or super slinky and, of course, get your mits on a mask for the occasion.

So far we can announce…

Smerins Anti-Social Club – Playing everything from old-time swing (with a twist) to hip-hop, ska, dirty funk-soul and dub, Smerins deliver complex-but-catchy brass arrangements underpinned by shape-shifting grooves. This is the sound of nine musicians unafraid to explore multiple directions at once while somehow managing to sound like on one but themselves.

DJ John Hendicott – Producer, composer and DJ, John has won over crowds around the world with his deep groove, reggae, hip-hip and disco. He’s worked with the likes of Joe Driscoll, Chipmunk, Lazy Habits & Sekou Kouyate, and is currently between Bristol and LA whilst working on various film projects.

A magnificent show of cabaret with the super hot Brazilian carnival dancers Rebelado, the very English ‘tweed-sporting-pipe-smokin’ Mr B Gentleman Rhymer, plus No Fit State Circus hand balancer Anne-Fay, and finally, the very dreamy August swinging from the rafters!
