Proudly supporting Oxfam

Australian comedy’s night of nights is back! After far too long, we are raising the curtain on a stunning line-up of world class comedians, all for a good cause.

The Gala kicks off the Festival season with a star-studded line-up of performers showing their support for Oxfam. It’s a big night of huge laughs that’s not just a great excuse to laugh again, it’s also a chance to do some good.

Back at our spiritual home of the Palais Theatre, this year’s Gala will be a more intimate affair with a limited number of tickets available. Get in quick!
