Festival co-producer David Read said “We are honoured in our tenth anniversary year Drew and Sally have agreed to be our Ambassadors. We have worked alongside them in previous cabaret festivals and have always been struck by their creativity and professionalism. They are strongly admired within the industry by performers and producers alike. They will be an additional source of support for all performers in this year’s line-up, which will be announced in the coming weeks.’’

Drew said “The Melbourne Cabaret Festival is the perfect place to trial original works or launch a major concert. There’s a show and a seat for everyone.”

Sally said “I’ve been performing in cabaret for over 20 years in Australia and in London. I was privileged to be one of the headline acts at the inaugural Melbourne Cabaret Festival 10 years ago and since then have watched the festival grow and continue to present some of the best talent around.”

The Melbourne Cabaret Festival is made possible through the generous support of the Stonnington City Council, the ron and margaret dobell foundation and Quest On Dorcas Apartment Hotel. It will take place Wednesday 19 until Sunday 30 June 2019 at Chapel Off Chapel.
