Festival Partner Godfrey Hirst rolls out the carpet for thousands of comedy lovers again in 2024

For a second year the Melbourne International Comedy Festival joined forces with Godfrey Hirst as the exclusive carpet and flooring partner of the Festival – seeing thousands of comedy lovers walk the red carpet at Melbourne Town Hall, and a selection of Festival venues across the city.

Throughout the festival, a diverse range of standard and custom carpets adorned venues such as Trades Hall, the Chinese Museum, The Victoria Hotel, Rydges Melbourne, and Melbourne Town Hall.

As a local manufacturer GH Commercial believe it is important to support local events that celebrate creativity, fun and inclusion, and there is no better representation of that ethos than the Melbourne International Comedy Festival!

A standout feature of this year’s partnership was the collaboration between Feltex and Elephant in the Room to create a captivating lounge space at the iconic Trades Hall Festival Hub. Designed by Bree Leech, the lounge exuded a maximalist-inspired aesthetic, characterized by bold colours, eclectic furnishings, and a playful ambiance, complemented by Godfrey Hirst’s designer carpet brand, Feltex. The lounge provided a vibrant setting for audiences to unwind and enjoy a pre- or post-show catch up with friends, accompanied by Elephant in the Room wine.
