Event Info


The Cardiff Christmas Festival is a spectacular entertainment attraction being staged inside a unique venue in the grounds of Sophia Gardens, in the heart of Cardiff city centre. Adding another unique offering to Cardiff’s Christmas Season, four incredible shows will offer something for everyone – Santa’s Wish, Castellana, Welsh Of The West End & My My ABBA The Christmas Concert – and will be performed in the round, in the intimacy of a spectacular Spiegeltent, promising to transport visitors to a nostalgic and magical world.


A European Spiegeltent (or magic mirrors) is the ultimate cabaret and music salon. It is a Bohemian entertainment salon built from wood & mirrors and detailed in velvet brocade. This fully undercover and heated venue provides a magical and unique backdrop, perfect for the world-class and enchanting theatrical productions taking place this festive season.


A Jaw-dropping Entertainment Spectacular

The brand new, jaw-dropping spectacle of Castellana is a sensational blend of cabaret, burlesque and comedy with a hint of naughtiness with anthemic music and a storyline set in a magical mystical world filled with intrigue and suspense. World class performers will amaze, beguile, baffle and amuse as they deliver the ultimate Christmas Night Out in the intimate setting of the Fortuna Spiegeltent.
Prepare to be welcomed and delighted by the cheeky magicians, shapeshifters, high-flyers, fiery angels and dazzling demons of Castellana.

As the magic intoxicates your senses, discover the stories and strange transformations of the people who came before you. Anything is possible for those who dare to leave their everyday lives behind and enter this timeless, risqué otherworld of miracles and wonder.

The show is suitable for those aged 16+
