Isn't it wonderful. This is the interior of the Speigel tent, one of the last 10 in existence. The tent is currently in the Market Square, in front of Nottingham's Council house. During the month there are a whole range of festivals, from the Goose fair to music. This tent is hosting events for some of the festivals. So in the day it is the home of Game City, with its electronic medieval jousting and then at night it reverts to burlesque, music and more.
To sit inside it is magical, full of light and mirrors. The space is warm and feels special, you can imagine it with crowds waiting to see the shows. It has travelled and the mirrors retold the stories of several continents and many voices. If you are here, or near enough, come and see. Take a seat and have a drink, then let your imagination drift and fill the space with stories.
