Christmas Spiegeltent

Monster Ball

Where Monsters Come to Party

It’s tough being a monster. Having to be scary and awesome all the time, when really what you want to do is party. Well, now you can. Whatever sort of critter you are, you’re invited to the Monster Ball

Monster Ball is your event. Bring your googly eyes. Bring your extra head. Bring your fangs, your scales and your claws – and your fire-breathing dragon.

If you’re not really a monster, we don’t care. Make a costume. Make yourself the most magnificent, magical, mysterious monster suit and we promise not to tell the real monsters you’re gatecrashing their party. Dressing up is not essential but this is a great opportunity for you to don a costume and make some hocus pocus diplodocus happy monster noises and crazy dance moves.

It’s going to be stupendous

Monsters like things big, bold and surprising so we’re promising big, bold and surprising acts.

Aerial Acrobats. Clowns. Cabaret.

There will also be bubbles, games, face painting and crafts because Monsters also like to chill.

It’s a place for Monster Moves. And then we’ll hit the dance floor. Great tunes, great beats, all through a Monster sound system.

Well-behaved Aliens are very welcome. Well-behaved Adults are welcome too.

The Acts

★Meet the marvellous Mike McCallum – the contortionist who’s more curly than a Curly Wurly and bendier than a bendy straw.

★A woman who knows there’s more to the hula hoop than a crunchy snack – watch aerial artist Yammel Rodriguez twist, turn and loop the loop in a hula hoop.

★Better at singing than 99.999999999% of everyone else, Llio Evans hails from the Welsh town with the longest name so, naturally, she’s good at tongue-twisters too.

★Madcap comperes, Nikki, JD and Arthur might make you want to run off and join the circus. But if you do that, you’ll end up as bonkers as they are. And you’ll miss Christmas, So don’t.
