Docklands secret – We have our own Spiegeltent 

Yes, can you believe we have our own Spiegeltent? It’s aptly called “Wonderland Spiegeltent”. 

Spiegeltent (Dutch for “Mirror Tent”, from spiegel+tent). It is a large travelling tent, constructed in wood and canvas and decorated with mirrors and stained glass and used as an entertainment venue.

They were originally built in Belgium during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and only a handful of these Spiegeltents remain in existence today. These survivors continue to provide an up close and personal entertainment experience.

The Wonderland Spiegeltent in Docklands is an inner city venue that is home to world-class performances including comedy, acrobatics, circus, music and dance as well as a unique venue to host your next event.

Check the website and set aside a night to really relax and enjoy what’s on offer.

The Wonderland Spiegeltent is located on city side under the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel.

Did you miss Scotch & Soda? – a circus with jazz, served straight up. A show that was an actual cocktail of exciting artistic personalities, world-class circus, heart pounding bar-room and junkyard jazz and one final ingredient – you, the audience. 

It was the vibe of a rowdy whiskey joint set in a dusty parallel universe, somewhere between depression-era travelling circuses and Europe’s 19th century carnival past.

With a heartfelt blend of brass, wood and strings, the virtuosic Uncanny Carnival Band had everyone jumping, whooping and clapping. Each musician is one of Sydney’s finest – plucked from the top shelf. They were set loose on the stage and things were spectacularly messy. With the musicians getting in on the acts and the acrobats playing music, this unique genre-bending party was one you should not have missed.

If you did miss Scotch & Soda, don’t miss Papillion in December. It offers something stunning, naughty and new, just for you.

The chamber is also hosting its Christmas network function on December 9 and is incorporating this hit performance. Details are on our website.
