Setting up a Festival Hub on Lahey Square, Wonderland Spiegeltent Festival Hub will be a central arts and entertainment hub in the Bellarine Peninsula, featuring a nostalgic Ferris Wheel, a licensed garden bar, craft beers, Bellarine wines, sweet treats and food trucks ready to party by the sea.
Bold, beautiful, and hilarious, this season’s circus-meets-cabaret-meets-vaudeville extravaganza should take top priority on your arts festival must-do list.
“It’s been an extraordinary year for everyone, and part of the ethos of Wonderland Spiegeltent has always been to create a magical escape for audiences through live performance, ” Wonderland Spiegeltent director Melissa Head says.
