Step inside the Spiegeltent and find yourself transported to a decadent speakeasy where the ultimate swing sounds and jazz styles of the 20s and 30s have been shaken up, electro-charged and smuggled into the 21st century.
Famed for their impeccably-curated electro-swing parties, the inimitable White Mink : Black Cotton make their annual pilgrimage to Bristol for another very special night in the Spiegeltent. Expect a wild mix of sublime sounds, walkabout, burlesque, world-class cabaret, DJs, VJs and beautiful characters aplenty.
While there isn’t a strict dress code, dressing up is de rigueur so dust off your dancing shoes, dig out your glad rags and remember, you’re never fully dressed without a smile.
