Each edition of Festival of the Mind is centred around the Spiegeltent – a glorious concert hall constructed from wood, canvas and decorative stained glass windows, that is somehow bigger on the inside. The tent usually pops up in Barker's Pool in the city centre for the duration of the festival, hosting talks, performances, dances and more. This year, though, the magic of the Spiegeltent will be recreated entirely online – with the virtual Spiegeltent acting as the Festival of the Mind's hub, hosting inspiring and thought-provoking podcasts, live-streamed discussions and readings, films and more.
