Wexford Spiegeltent Festival

Wexford town

The Spiegeltents are as rare as they are beautiful, lovingly designed and built by Flemish Master Craftsmen in the early 1920s. Only a handful of these unique and legendary “halls of mirrors” are left in the World today, each with their own unique personality
and style. These hand hewn pavilions are constructed of oak with teak baroque dance floors and decorated with velvet and brocade canopies, bevelled mirror columns and stained glass windows. The beautiful circular venues feature intimate booths, ornate bars and
Art Nouveau chandeliers.

The Wexford Spiegeltent Festival takes place in an original 1920’s Spiegeltent which is located on the Quay in Wexford town, and runs across three weeks in October.  The diverse artistic programme features comedy, traditional music, vaudeville cabaret, literary events, contemporary music, theatre, business networking, puppetry, burlesque, silent movie, cooking and folk music.

Acts that have performed at the Festival include Imelda May, Tommy Tiernan, the Boomtown Rats, Dylan Moran, Bell X1, Reginald D Hunter, Aslan, Paul Young, Albert Hammond, The Academic, Hudson Taylor, Steve Earle, Christy Moore and many more.

The Festival has won a number of awards including the IMRO Best Live Music Festival 2018.
