When 12 people live under the same roof in a converted warehouse in North London, what could possibly go wrong?

Winner of Best Cabaret (Adelaide Fringe Weekly), Lala Barlow and Robbie Smith are two wide eyed koalas fresh off the boat, looking for the perfect place to call home. Shortlisted for Best Musical and Best Cabaret at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, relive their year living at Daisy Mill as they discover high ceilings, bathroom baskets and very thin bedroom walls.

Directed by Sarah Redmond and starring every housemate you’ve ever lived with,The Worst Little Warehouse In London is a "mind-bogglingly funny story of companionship, shared accommodation, and how to grit your teeth and bare it" (Broadway Baby).

Venue Information

  • Known for their wild and decadent ambiance, Spiegeltents are exquisite pop-up venues that suit an eclectic performance programme.
    Literally translated as ‘mirror tent’, Spiegeltents were originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The magnificent round tent is made of dark wood with intricately carved panels, stained glass windows, bevelled mirrors and an impressive draped ceiling. The boothed seating that lines the edges makes way for a grand dance floor with an in-built stage where performers such as Marlene Dietrech famously sung ‘Falling in Love Again’ in a Spiegeltent in Paris in the 1930’s.

    Nottingham’s traditional Goose Fair would see folk travel from far and wide to celebrate the end of harvest and pick up a Goose (or two) which were driven annually across the fens from Norfolk. Whilst as far as we know Spiegeltents were never hosted at the Goose Fair of old, entertainment was a significant feature of the event, both in the ale houses around Old Market Square and surrounding streets and in freak shows across the fair, where you could have expected to see literally anything from The smallest child in the world to The Yorkshire Giant Brothers, despite usually being an elaborate illusion from enterprising showmen.

    The Salon Perdu is one of a handful of the unique and legendary tents left in the world today; it has spent its life travelling the world from New York to Sydney, and since 2015 annually to Nottingham, as a small part of the Goose Fair returns to its spiritual home of Old Market Square.
