masquerade_-1800x575-1Swerving a line between black tie do, festival chic and low down ‘n’ dirty, the Spiegeltent Masquerade Ball is a firm fixture, and one of the hottest-tickets-in-town, on Bristol’s festive calendar. Sold out before any other event for the last two years the team promise another wild and spectacular night of excellent live music, weird and wonderful performances, hip shaking grooves and, of course, the opportunity to get dressed up to the absolute nines in whatever floats your boat.

Sequins, feathers and dickie bows vs. grimey fishnets and 80s lurex – anything goes.
