Woolf and Wilde: A Queer Party


Event Status

Has it really been four years since the last Woolf and Wilde party? Don’t worry, we haven’t changed a bit. Still weird, wilde and woolfy after all this time.

As the cherry on top of another fantastic Melbourne Fringe, we’re inviting you, once again, to party with some of the festival’s brightest LGBTQ+ stars, including Creatrix Tiara, Selina Jenkins and Mama Alto. It’ll be a night of spectacular performance, music, poetry and conversation, plus plenty of drinks and dancing in between. Come together – anybody, everybody – to celebrate great queer art, and dance the night away, with new and old friends at the Melbourne Fringe Festival Club. Hosted by Karen from Finance.

No bookings required for standing room only.

This event is presented in partnership with Melbourne Fringe.
