Sin and the City

Tuesday 20 April.

Doors open at 4.30pm.

Join Max Burns-McRuvie for ‘Sin and the City — true tales of crime and debauchery from Sydney’s peculiar past’.

As Sydney grew throughout the nineteenth century, so did the amount of crime that was committed from within. It lurked in the laneways, it peppered the newspapers and it often ended at Darlinghurst Gaol with the hangman’s noose. Some of these crimes were horrific and drenched in blood. Others were crafty and left more mysteries than clues. Many were never solved and countless have been forgotten. Max will present a storytelling session accompanied by tailor-made cocktails and live music inspired by the tales and characters he will narrate on stage.

Wes and Allison Harder will bring you soulful and juicy songs from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Enjoy jazz and swing with some cool blues for grooving at ‘Sin and the City’.

Guests are invited to stay on to enjoy quality eats and drinks from the Sily bar.

COVID-19: attendees will be seated in line with current NSW Public Health regulations.  The current regulations allow patrons to be seated alongside each other and not socially distanced within the bar. You are invited to, but not required to, wear a mask.
