De parel van vuren
De Parel van Vuren Spiegeltent
After the Pearl was built in the early 20th century, the first few years were rough. Competing with heavy competition from the Belgians, the Pearl had to be exceptional. After some great first years, the spiegeltent threatened to lose the struggle, with a bold thievery as ultimate low. Still the spiegeltent came back stronger than ever, becoming a known sight across the Netherlands.
From a regular visitor of the carnival in Tilburg, to being the audience’s favorite in Australia, the life of a spiegeltent is hard to predict. Apparently the Australian sun is treating the spiegeltent well, since it keeps returning to the other side of the ocean.
