Spiegeltent hire

It was not always common to hire a spiegeltent. Originally, the first spiegeltent operators travelled from city to city. The operators earned their money by charging the guests who were dancing to the music of a dance organ. After a while, it became more common for the operators to hire out the spiegeltents.

The moment a guest stepped on the dance floor, the operators charged them ‘dance money’. Other than this, liquor provided the operators with a steady source of income. After a while it was more common to only hire out spiegeltents, so customers themselves could decide on the activities in the spiegeltent. By hiring out spiegeltents, the operator was no longer at risk of a big loss. It became very popular amongst artists and theatre producers to hire a spiegeltent.

By hiring out the spiegeltents, the operators changed their business model and stopped charging the guests ‘dance money’. Nowadays it is a common practice amongst spiegeltent operators to only hire out their spiegeltents. Varying from huge global theatre shows to small village festivals, almost anyone can hire a spiegeltent.
