May 2014 saw the return of the world-renowned Spiegeltent. A European mirror tent, the Spiegeltent is the ultimate cabaret and music salon. Spiegeltents are hand-hewn pavilions used as traveling dance halls, bars and entertainment salons since they were created in the early 20th century. There are only a handful of these unique and legendary ‘tents of mirrors’ left in the world today. The Drawing Circus was honoured to hold three events in this magical and majestic venue over the May Fringe Festival. They were based around The Drawing Circus animals, acrobats and a special event for families where the audience chose what happened to our different characters.
