White Mink debuts in Liverpool at our glorious Spiegeltent! Indulge in an experience which promises a little magic and a dash of 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.
Look skyward, to be hypnotised by our entrancing fire dancer, as she unfurls in a display of colour and intensity from the aerial hoop. 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 Bristol in 2017, 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.

Abigail delights with performances that are lavish treats for the eyes. Unfurling displays of colour and operatic intensity, her daredevil circus acts are served with balletic elegance and sensuality.
