Last night Katie and I went back in time to watch a sideshow in 1930s Coney Island, or better known as the London Wonderground, South Bank Festival.
We had tickets to see 'The Royal Family of Strange People' which was held in the most beautiful 1920s spiegeltent I've ever seen! It really was like going back in time to a time when glamourous show girls and handsome strong men were in their heyday!

|the entire venue was covered in lanterns and fairy lights, it was so magical.|
|Katie has only just introduced me to the wonder of instagram. She made us look old!|
|Katie at the entrance looking so pretty!|
We had such a lovely night it was definitely just what the doctor ordered,I'd highly recommend anyone around London go and visit before it closes,although now I am completely obsessed with the idea of running away with the circus and being a 1930s show girl.
I'm off to practice the trapeze in a dusty sequined romper and jeweled turban (in my dreams!!)
