Join the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts as cultural historian Warren Fahey talks, sings and leads us on an eclectic romp through the colourful history of all five precincts of Sydney’s inner east from Kings Cross to Rushcutters Bay – and their high life, low life and, sometimes, very low life.

Ride the scenic roller-coaster over the snow-covered mountains of the forgotten White City at Rushcutters Bay; see the naughty boys at the ferries approaching Woolloomooloo Bay; chase ‘peeping Toms’ in Elizabeth Bay; tap to the tunes of cabaret’s greats at the Silver Spade, Potts Point, or dare to be different in yesterday’s Kings Cross. Relive the antics and the era, one ripping yarn (and song) at a time.

When: Tuesday 5 September 2017, 12:30pm- 1:30pm
Where: Mitchell Theatre, Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Cost: Free – No Booking Required
