White Mink return to Spiegeltent Bristol for 2019 Festive Season.
Indulge in little magical time-travel. Be transported back to the days of Swing and the Speakeasy. Vintage harmonies, incredible live jazz and a blend of entertainment that’s heady, intoxicating and surprisingly fresh. This is the vintage experience that’s not afraid to mix things up musically, re-imagining swing for the 21st century.
In other words, it’s going to be one heck of a party. Knees up. Dance. Rave. Disco – the names don’t matter because White Mink is unique. Nothing else fuses so many influences. Nothing else has so many fabulous entertainers.
That’s why when guests said goodnight at the end of last year’s sell-out event, they begged us for more. We’ve made them wait a year, but that’s okay because nothing else lasts in the memory like the magic of White Mink.
White Mink is even more special when you reserve a booth. Sold out weeks in advance in 2018, our booths seat up to 10 guests and are reserved exclusively for your group throughout the entire evening. You’ll even enjoy waiter service at your table. It’s Christmas, treat yourself!
General Admission tickets must also be bought with your booth reservation.
★ ELECTRIC SWING CIRCUS
A hugely popular fusion of saucy 20’s swing and stomping electro beats. ESC are behind their own annual SWINGAMAJIG festival in Birmingham but it’s always been in the live arena that they really come into their own. Deserving of the tag ‘Festival Veterans’, the ESC always bring the party!
Hailing from the rolling hills of Lancashire in the shadow of Pendle hill this 5 piece combine the chromatic gypsy flavours and swing articulation of jazz manouche with modern day pop, rock & hip-hop.
★ DJ KAPTINISDEAD (BIG SWING SOUNDSYSTEM)
This exceptional man is responsible for the UK’s most immersive music festival of mash up, Boomtown Fair and one half of deco-punk DJ legends Big Swing Soundsystem. He’s taking the night off from his extremely busy schedule of being the Boomtown Sheriff, to bathe you in the beats of the electro-swing golden age.
★ Abigail Nénuphar
Abigail delights with performances are lavish treats for the eye…… Unfurling displays of colour and operatic intensity, her daredevil circus acts are served with balletic elegance and sensuality. Nénuphar’s experience as a dancer brings a poise and sultry kineticism that is all her own. Mesmerising on the aerial hoop, captivating with silks and demonically entrancing as a fire-dancer, Nenuphar is a unique performer.
The wild-spirited daughter of a champion motor-cycle racer, Abagail toured in circuses across India and Ireland, before running away from the circus to become a show in her own right.
