Thank you Melbourne for a massive three weeks!

Over the three weeks of the festival, the often ignored art form of cabaret was centre stage in Melbourne, with thousands flocking to see shows across multiple venues.

A big thank you to all the people we roped into making the festival such a success:

  • daring audiences
  • talented performers and the teams of musical directors, musicians, directors and writers who make them shine
  • teams at each of the venues we utilised
  • technicians, stage management and front-of-house teams
  • lovely volunteers
  • partners and sponsors
  • friends of the festival
  • media who helped to get the word out about the festival

We're off now to tour the Roadshow Gala for a couple of weeks but will be in touch soon with more exciting news. Sign up to our enewsletter to stay in touch.

Our 2015 dates are Thursday 18 to Sunday 28 June.
