Two of Harrogate International Festivals' most magical events are returning after a break.

This year sees the return of the fabulous Spiegeltent and Children's Festival both of which tend to be popular with parents - and youngsters!

The location will be the same - Crescent Gardens in Harrogate - but the date for the Spiegeltent and Children's Festival has been moved for the first time away from May/June.

Both events will take place this September.

The Spiegeltent will offer an amazing array of different acts in an exotic, cabaret-style setting.

Originally built in Belgium during the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, only a handful of Spiegeltents are still in use today.

This spectacular-looking, large travelling tent is constructed in wood and canvas and decorated with mirrors and stained glass and comes complete with a bar.

Acts who have graced its stage in recent years include Gypsy Queens, Kitten and The Hip, the House of Burlesque, Django a la Creole, Silent Disco, literary talks and a lot more.
