The hugely popular Spiegeltent will be returning to the city this April with the opening few days being announced and going on sale from Friday 21 February 2020.
The attraction, which has been visiting the city since 2015, will be staged in Old Market Square between Wednesday 29 April and Sunday 17 May 2020.
Known for their wild and decadent ambiance, Spiegeltents are exquisite pop-up venues. Literally translated as ‘mirror tent’ they were built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and now regularly tour the world’s cities and festivals.
The programme kicks off on Wednesday 29 April with a Just the Tonic comedy headlined by national treasure, TV and film star Johnny Vegas.
Other regular favourites and traditional sell-out shows such as Bamalamasingsong will return alongside many new performers for 2020.
Councillor Dave Trimble, Nottingham City Council’s Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said: “Thanks to our partnership with Nottingham BID, we have been able to programme even more events for the Spiegeltent. T
“here will be great shows and activities in the day and in the evenings and they will appeal to all ages and interests. We’ve had some great feedback from audiences of all ages since the Spiegeltent has been visiting the city and we think this year’s programme is going to be the best so far.
“We expect that many of the shows will sell out very quickly, so I would urge people not to miss out on this truly novel entertainment experience.”
