The Spiegeltents are coming.. 11 Jul 2015
It's mid July and two incredible Spiegeltents are being built to start the Summer Festival season in Edinburgh.
A Spiegeltent (Dutch for "Mirror Tent", from spiegel+tent) is a large travelling tent, constructed in wood and canvas and decorated with mirrors and stained glass. They were built as travelling entertainment venues.
The Jazz Festival presents over 70 concerts in these beautiful venues.
