15 Things To Do In Our Spiegeltent


Where else can you watch Mexican wrestling, cabaret and drags queens on treadmills or play bingo, catch a cabaret show and get your kids tattooed with glitter? Our Spiegeltent promises some of the most-varied entertainment you can find this festive period and the best thing is that most of it’s FREE!

1. Watch Norman Jay For Free

Norman Jay MBE is one of the most respected and popular DJs in the world today. Co-founder of the legendary Good Times Sound System and London dance music station KISS FM, he’s playing our Spiegeltent on Nov 24 and it’s free to get in!

2. Meet Mariah

Time Out say: “If you have yet to bear witness to the diamante sprinkled, wig-quaffed glory of Mariah & Friendz, return your A-Z: for you may no longer call yourself a Londoner.” We say worth it just because what else can you do that’s weirder on a Sunday night? Plus Mariah Carey is playing the O2 the next day and apparently rumoured to be planning to pop in.

3. Wrestle With A Mexican (sort of)

For the first time ever Mexican Wrestling is coming to South London, courtesy of Lucha Britannia, who are London’s best (and maybe only) Mexican wrestling troupe. Part-wrestling, part-comedy, part-cabaret, part-something else, they’ve promised to put on a show that will make our Spiegeltent shudder.

4. Get In The Christmas Spirit

The Winterville Mini Orchestra & Christmas Choir features strings, brass section and drummer, who will perform an alternative festive set of your favourite Christmas songs in the Spiegeltent. Come with us on a musical journey consisting of everything from The Pogues to The Pretenders, with a bit of Wham and Mariah thrown in for good measure.

5. Get Jiggy

If there’s a better hip hop show in London we don’t know of one than Gin ‘n’ Juice. Join us for their free set on Dec 8.

6. Wear A Mullet With Pride

Mullets aren’t just welcomed at Ultimate Power, they’re fetished. Turn up at the show on Nov 25 with a bonafide mullet and a mulled wine is on us!

R&She’s all-female R&B night is headlined by Melanie Blatt and apparently lots of saints will be in attendance for this free gig on Dec 15.

8. Shout ‘House’ A Lot

Indeedy Musical Bingo is like normal bingo, except with songs instead of numbers. And dancing grannies. Compete to win prizes ranging from sandwich toasters and inflatable bananas to vintage records and champagne!

9. Watch A Drag Queen On A Treadmill

Yep that’s right, after forming at Secret Garden Party many year’s ago Little Gay Brother are bringing their show to our Spiegeltent. Just one of the attractions is drag queens on treadmills.
