Cabaret Marquee


The definition of Cabaret is a form of entertainment featuring music, song, dance, recitation or drama. It is mainly distinguished by the performance venue (also called a cabaret), such as in a restaurant, pub or nightclub with a stage for performances. The entertainment is often (but not always) oriented towards adult audiences, and can include singers and dancers or burlesque entertainers, intended to cause laughter by caricaturing the manner or spirit of serious works, or by ludicrous treatment of their subjects.

Glastonbury Cabaret, the largest venue in T&C, is without chairs and tables or indeed a restaurant, although boasts around thirty non-stop acts each festival day, and on a stage!  The entertainment will often be orientated towards an adult audience and indeed aims to extol laughter!

Some people call it The Comedy Tent, and some call it Glastonbury’s Best Kept Secret. Bring your cushion, rug or blanket and come and get comfortable for some of the most amazing and eclectic comedic entertainment on site. We look forward to welcoming you!
