BRUNSWICK BALLROOM OPENING
G’day! From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone that has supported the Brunswick Ballroom, be that with their labour, their counsel or their patronage. The team at the ‘BB’ enjoyed a spectacular opening weekend, with all shows SOLD OUT or close to capacity. It has been many months of hard work and long hours. But it was all worth it to see happy punters, all so glad that live entertainment is back in this beautiful city of ours. All that said, nothing stops, and this week we have another jam packed line-up of entertainment. We start the week off with the BB’S favourite fella Tim Rogers, couple of tickets off selling out! Gonna be amazing. We then roll into the Brunswick Ballroom Gala. Two nights of Gala hosted by the one and only Eddie Perfect and the exceptional Margot Tanjutco. It’s the cream of the crop of Australian theatre and cabaret, as well as some exceptional talent on the rise. It’s a celebration of live performance being back in this city that will launch the Ballroom into the stratosphere. If you had wanted to come along to the Thursday night Gala performance, it is sold out, however tickets are still available for Friday night, the 5th of March. “I LOVE MUSIC…. BUT IT’S BEST SERVED LIVE!”
