Event description

Twisted Cabaret

Ready, set, go! 

Start with pre-show drinks in Joy Cummings Room at 6pm.

Don your most outrageous costume for a night of twisted camp carry-on at one of Newcastle’s most unique and prestigious heritage venues, City Hall.

At 7pm doors open to the main ballroom, enjoy a sumptuous two-course meal and show or attend the show only in the opulent art deco dress circle. ‘Twisted Cabaret’ is our highly anticipated adult only event. Finish the night to the beats of the fabulous DJ Victoria Anthony.

    About the host: Newcastle Pride Inc is an inclusive, vibrant, fun Newcastle based incorporated association, an LGBTIQA+ community-based charity organisation established in March 2018. Newcastle Pride celebrates sexuality and gender diversity in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Region within and outside our community. We work collaboratively to foster LGBTIQA+ Pride. We are fully inclusive.

    Our vision is to empower the current and future generations to be their true selves and feel accepted, find their voice and be proud of who they are, regardless of their gender identity or sexuality. We aspire to a safer, more inclusive future for our community.
