Wonderland Spiegeltent Festival Hub

Wonderland Spiegeltent Festival Hub presenting world class Cabaret- Music - Comedy Circus and more . Licensed Garden Bar and food outlets , with a open air theatre outside with plenty of amazing entertainment. The nostalgic Wonderland Spiegeltent is the most enchanting of structures - feel the weight of ten thousand late nights when you walk inside, evoking stories of love, passion and debauchery from Europe in the 1930s. Velvet and brocade curtains balloon inside, whispering the secrets of performances gone by; intimate booths, a circular stage and stained-glass windows transport you back to an era of cheek and charm, sass and decadence – the lusty, busty crème de la crème of the cabaret world.

As we are a licensed venue all minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult to enter the Wonderland Spiegeltent Festival Hub.

We hope you can make it out to one of these amazing pop-up venues during the Fringe to enjoy the fun and lively atmopshere that takes over Adelaide throughout the 2021 Adelaide Fringe!
