Wonderland Spiegeltent is at the heart of the Adelaide Fringe Festival, bringing audiences all the glitz and glamour with world class live entertainment including cabaret, circus, burlesque and concerts.
The venue is situated in Hindmarsh Square/Mukata and will transport you back to an era of early 20th century charm and decadence with its intimate booths, circular stage, velvet and brocade décor and stained-glass windows.
Circus Wonderland presents an enchanting circus adventure for all ages: 'Peter Pan - A Neverland Adventure' brings all your favourite characters to the stage bringing the likes of Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerbell and Nana the dog to life in a fun-filled stage show. Awarded The Adelaide Fringe Festival BankSA Best Children’s and Family Show last year, this is one to take little imaginative minds to.
Glitter coated popcorn, anyone? Named after the Belgian club party subculture, 'Popcorn Underground' is a night of world-class cabaret, adult carnival, burlesque, astounding circus and extraordinary artists.
