A new live entertainment event is headed for Port Douglas with the team from Wonderland Spiegeltent returning to town.

Wonderland Spiegeltent has become a popular fixture of the Port Douglas Carnivale in recent years and while the event didn’t go ahead this year, Wonderland Entertainment are coming back in September with a brand new socially distanced and COVID-safe event, full of magic and music.

While COVID-19 may have put a pause on the traditional shows inside the nostalgic velvet curtains of the Spiegeltent for the moment, it certainly won’t stop the music when Wonderland Entertainment presents ‘Wonderland Under The Stars’.

It will be a weekend of entertainment from September 10 to 13, featuring a world class circus, roving entertainers, foot-stomping blues music and acoustic rock and roll, all performed outdoors under the tropical night skies in Rex Smeal Park, Port Douglas.

The weekend’s events include two live performances from Australian rock legend, Tex Perkins, supported by local favourites, Lady Valiant. Along with the internationally acclaimed circus sensation A Simple Space, and roving performances by fire twirlers and percussionists.

Melissa Head, Director of Wonderland Spiegeltent said, “It’s been an extraordinary year for everyone, and part of the ethos of Wonderland Spiegeltent has always been to create a magical escape for audiences through live performance.

“Putting together this show has been met with overwhelming positivity, and we cannot wait to be back on stage, this time in the open air under tropical stars.”

Tickets go on sale Friday 31 August.
