This September the Idolize Spiegeltent landed at Canada Square Park and it was full to its rooftop with a programme of performances and activities for all to enjoy.  There’s comedy, music, kids activities, dance, cabaret, acrobatics, kids theatre and so much more.

Returning this year was Alex Horne with his Horne Section, a comedy club just for kids, the popular baby rave and our amazing Cabaret night with a new show this year for our opening night! New this year we welcomed a comedy duo presenting dark-comedy, new folk and old folk, an energetic kids comedy and cabaret show, dance lessons for beginners, an interactive kids music session, an improvised comedy battle, risqué and impressive high flying acrobatic performances, a concert especially for babies and tots with their parents and top comedian Daniel Sloss with his brand new comedy show – Canada Square Park became entertainment central for eleven days and we loved every minute of it!
