Christmas at the Spiegeltent announces A Right Royale Knees Up
The sensational Christmas Spiegeltent will return to Bristol’s harbourside in December with its own brand of festive celebration. This year guests will be invited to join The Spiegeltent for ‘A Right Royale Knees Up’ themed occasion where they will experience an evening filled with Royale cabaret, music, food and regal revelries.
Guests will enjoy a delectable three course meal that has been designed by Stu Seth who has over 15 years catering experience and then be entertained by some of the UK’s finest cabaret performers.
International hit and old time showman Mat Ricardo will oversee proceedings as compere for the evening with guest appearances from hoola hoop extraordinaire Lisa Lottie and hilarious ballroom dancers Barry & Yvonne. All the while, from up in the Royale Box there will be heckling and haranguing from her Majesty and co, courtesy of local puppeteers Pickled Image. This will be a Royale variety show with a difference.
Guests should come wearing their regal finery for a night out in a truly vintage venue. The ‘Crystal Palace’ is one of the remaining original travelling ballrooms designed in the 50’s to host glamorous occasions, and resurrected on Bristol’s harbourside to host truly spectacular Christmas parties.
Guests will be sat amongst dark rich mahogany panelling, candlelight and opulence to experience stunning circus acts, good old fashioned showmanship and great comic artists, all working their magic on the festive audience.
