One of the big attractions in the Centenary 100 celebrations, for me anyway, was the Famous Spiegeltent having a season in the Parliamentary Rose Gardens. I was kinda hoping there’d be a range of good quality music, cabaret and performances to watch, the same as Spiegeltent seasons have had in Melbourne and Sydney in the past.
There may very well still be that kinda stuff. I can’t tell because, despite the season being a month away, they’ve announced precisely NONE of what’s going to be on in there. Currently on the website there’s a notice saying:
Thank you for your patience regarding the delayed availability of the Canberra season program. The planned released of the program on January 9 was delayed for a number of reasons although be assured the season will be going ahead. The program will be accessible from this page as soon as the details are finalised.

Waiting 20 days before saying “we still don’t know what we’re doing” doesn’t fill me with confidence that we’re going to get anything even vaguely special. Does anybody know anything as to why this looks like such a massive cluster?
