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!

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.
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.

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.
