Edinburgh Festival Season 2010
Friday, 6 – Monday 30 August, 2010
A year on her back, sunning herself in warmer climes – pink martinis by the pool, milk baths and facials, even rumours: “She's had some work done!” – the old dame is back in all her glory and ready to strut her stuff on the world's greatest festival stage! The 'Surprise Pink' gel is in the lantern, the piano is at A440, spats have been spat and polished, silks straightened and tickets tripped.
The most Famous of all magic mirror tents is joined this year by her second-cousin-once-removed, The Deluxe Lounge Supper Club & Speakeasy anchored by the notorious Shuffle Club, a brilliant band that simply reeks of (lower) class, and featuring The Magic Lantern Picture Show, a fresh new festival of quirky short films.
In 2010, The Famous Spiegel Garden offers not just the promise, but the reality of edible food, courtesy of a taste-tested selection of foodies set to seduce your taste buds, jostling amongst gypsies, horse traders and unsavoury types, selling not only themselves, but vintage clothing, jewellery and invaluable or impractical bric-à-brac…
A new commission – Smoke and Mirrors – follows in the stiletto-heeled footsteps of La Clique and stars the household-name-to-be... iOTA. With the sensational Spontaneous Broadway tickling your fancy along with your funny-bone, the finest line-up of concerts and our resident DJ Lenny Love spinning grooves, you’ll remember why you are alive!
The Famous Spiegeltent family are thrilled to be back in George Square Gardens in 2010 with the grande dame turning 90. She’s greener, sweeter and more sustainable than ever – and loving her northern summer just as much as the Auld Toon loves her!
Carry your love over the threshold!!!
Please note, in accordance with Scottish liquor licencing laws, minors are not permitted within The Famous Spiegel Garden after 10pm.
