Newcastle’s love affair with the famous Spiegeltent is set to continue this month when Strut & Fret’s ever-popular Blanc de Blanc Encore returns as part of the City of Newcastle’s New Annual Festival.


Hot from return seasons in Sydney and Darwin, there is no better way to herald in Spring than a champagne frolic with sexy, awe-inspiring antics in Civic Park. Packed with new surprises and new local and international artists, it’s a hedonistic, glamorous and extravagant world of vintage French flair, risqué humour, spectacular aerials, comedy and big dance numbers that will have you dancing in your seat and gasping for more.

This intoxicating Gatsby-esque ride astonishes and delights with its world-renowned brand of opulent, cheeky, edge of your seat theatre.

The original Blanc de Blanc was staged in Civic Park in 2018, with the revised production, Blanc de Blanc Encore, wowing Novocastrians in 2022 after being cancelled due to Covid in 2019. Earlier this year, in March, local audiences lined up to see the Strut & Fret production of The Party, which has a more raucous, in-your-face, debaucherous feel.

According to Scott Maidment, Director and Producer, Blanc de Blanc Encore is “more sophisticated than The Party, much more elegant. It’s like drinking champagne. At the beginning of the evening, it’s smooth, celebratory and elegant. As the evening progresses, it becomes more intoxicating; the bubbles go to your head, and you end up dancing on the tables full of sparkling joy. It has a completely different energy – less about the raunch factor and much more high-class!”

For those that have seen Blanc de Blanc Encore before, don’t let that stop you from coming again – introduce your friends to the Spiegeltent magic and re-experience the fun and mayhem you know is on offer. Regular attendees of Strut & Fret productions will know that no show is ever the same. For visit
