Bag tickets to 9 rip-roaring adult-only shows in the Spiegeltent

Then two days later, you can see a hit show straight from the Edinburgh Fringe as The Elvis Dead reinterprets the classic cult horror movie Evil Dead 2 using the songs of the King.
That’s not all. There’s a Silent Disco on Saturday 15th December 2018, so put on your headphones and choose from three channels of pop classics, dance anthems and party hits, before you return the next Monday for Bollywood classics played in the style of 60s soul and funk tunes at Botown. On Friday 21st December 2018, you can see British drag supergroup Denim play a set of old-school pop bangers, before your penultimate Spiegeltent show two days later – La Rouge promises a night of cabaret with diva Lili La Scala, comedy circus artist Abigail Collins and magician Oliver Tabor.
