Double Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominee Kieran Hodgson - Character Comedian is desperate to make a funny show about 1970s politics, but is not yet sure that this is possible. Join him in our #Spiegeltent to help him create an epic and ill-advised brand new hour, all centred on Kieran’s needless and self-serving quest to explain the historical roots of Brexit. Expect bold new ideas and stunningly accurate impressions of dead politicians you’ve never heard of.
Tuesday 17 July, 9.30pm. Spiegeltent, Buxton.
Born out of #Manchester ’s fertile music scene, The Breath mix Irish folk influences with mesmerising guitar riffs, anthemic themes and powerful hooks. Ríoghnach Connolly’s soulful vocals are interwoven into the electronic fabric of Stuart McCallum’s distinctive sound world. Hypnotic, lush, powerfully raw and raucously punchy, their songs entrance, uplift and break your heart. Catch them in our #spiegeltent on Sunday 15 July; tickets are on sale now from our website (link in bio). #BIFTent#BIF2018#buxton#buxtonfestival

Each year at the @adelaidecabaret Festival we honour an icon of our industry. This year we gave the award to @thefamousspiegeltent & Spiegel Maestro David Bates. With his tent David has given a home to so many cabaret artists around the world, started a worldwide trend for presenting modern, alternative, glorious work inside mirrored tents and created a family of Glorious Misfits within the velvet-lined booths and upon the decadent wooden dance floor. I am so proud that we are able to bestow this award to someone that so many of us owe so much to. Thank you David & thank you to the beautiful Famous xxxx #adcabfest#cabaret#iconaward#spiegeltent photos by @claudioraschellaphotographer unplanned & very late at night in a corridor because he is a genius.
Day 3 of tour part 1
After being stuck in car accident traffic for almost 2 hours we make it to Brighton. And it's love at first sight. The weather is amazing, everything is beautiful and so much is going on! We manage to go see @courtneyact performing as part of Brighton Fringe, we eat amazing curry and we get drunk. I get stuck in a smoking area with what turns out to be Brighton's best local drag queens. And then that incredible photo gets taken which proves that I am clearly better princess material than Megan Markle. Brighton, I love you.
