The most beautiful of the last remaining Belgian Spiegeltents, The Famous Spiegeltent, was built in 1920 by master craftsmen Oscar Mols Dom and Loius Goor. Since Marlene Dietrich sang Falling In Love Again on The Famous Spiegeltent stage in the 1930s, its magic mirrors have reflected thousands of images of artists, audiences and exotic gatherings.
For the Taranaki International Arts Festival, The Famous Spiegeltent hosts a huge variety of shows including comedy, cabaret, music and dance, the Power of Words literary event and lunchtime concerts. Full bar and menu facilities are available prior to, during and after scheduled events. The Famous Spiegeltent is free admission outside scheduled show times, but will only be open to ticket holders for each show.
