The Spiegeltent is a brand new venue for Chichester in 2019

Featuring an eclectic mix of events including cabaret, circus, music, comedy and spoken-word, the Chichester Spiegeltent promises something completely new. During the day, bring the kids for beatboxing adventures, comedy and crafts, then kick back with friends when it gets dark with a festival atmosphere, bar and late-night events. With acts fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, a funny and ferocious revival of Roy Williams’ Sing Yer Heart Out For The Lads and much more, this season is not to be missed.

Spiegeltents, or ‘mirror tents’, are travelling tents that originated in Belgium in the 19th century, popping up virtually overnight in towns and cities, bringing with them circus, dance and unexpected acts!

Chichester Festival Theatre presents this new season of work alongside its own Festival 2019. With a commitment to curate ambitious and dynamic theatre for diverse audiences, The Spiegeltent is an exciting opportunity to fulfil our charitable mission to give everyone an opportunity to experience live art.
