Spiegeltents are hand-hewn pavilions used as travelling dance halls, bars and entertainment salons since they were created in the early 20th century. There are only a handful of these unique and legendary ‘tents of mirrors' left in the world today. Built of wood, mirrors, canvas, leaded glass and detailed in velvet and brocade, each has its own personality and style.

The most beautiful of the last remaining Belgian Spiegeltents, The Famous Spiegeltent, was built in 1920 by master craftsmen Oscar Mols Dom and Loius Goor. This Grande Dame has spent her lifetime at the bequest of festivals and fairgrounds throughout Europe and beyond, playing host to the world's greatest cabaret artists, musicians and circus burlesque performers.

The Famous Spiegeltent is a part of The Festival Garden, a temporary Sydney Festival venue in Hyde Park North. ‘The Garden' also plays host to free late-night music presentations and has several bars and food outlets, making it the perfect place to start off your evening before seeing a showing either within the Garden or at another venue around town.
