A former Spice Girl will be opening this years Winterville, which starts next month on Clapham Common.

Mel C aka Sporty Spice will be taking to the Spiegeltent decks for a trip down memory lane, with a special 90s mixtape DJ set. She will be joined by Ultimate Power, Two Brewers Takeover, DJ Yoda and Jazzie B.

There’ll be festive fun for all the family on the opening weekend, with a special concert from Lambeth Live Explosion, a performance opportunity which invites young local musicians to participate and share their talent with audiences under the iconic Spiegeltent roof. Little Bird’s Fun Quarter will also return once again for the opening weekend, where little ones can learn new circus skills, craft Christmas decorations and enjoy a glitter tattoo applied by one of Santa’s elves, all for free.

Tickets to the Ice Rink, Roller Disco, Backyard Cinema and selected shows are available to book in advance from the Winterville website.
