As part of the 2018 Australian Heritage Festival, The City of Sydney Historical Association invites you to hear Warren Fahey bring to life the stories of Sydney’s inner-east which offers a fascinating history of Sydney’s high life, low life and, sometimes, very low life.
Cultural historian and performer, Warren Fahey, will deliver an eclectic romp through the social history of Sydney’s most famous neighbourhood from scenic roller-coaster rides at Rushcutter Bay’s White City amusement park; maritime mischief down at the ‘Loo; the scandal of ‘peeping Toms’ at Elizabeth Bay; and memories of cabaret’s greats at the Silver Spade in Potts Point, to the origins of the darker side of Kings Cross.
When: Saturday 12 May, 2.00pm
Where: Sydney Mechanics School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Cost: $3 members, $6 guests. No bookings required.
