Launching a new style of event with historical storytelling, music and performance in a hidden heritage courtyard bar (Since I Left You) at 338 Kent Street serving freshly shaken cocktails, local wines, craft beers and bar food.
Throughout 2021, on the third Tuesday of the month, join us to hear historical tales associated with the Kent Street storehouses and the Western Corridor of the CBD including the underbelly and alternative histories. Hear from architectural scholars, raconteurs and, during the winter months, see lost photographs from Sydney’s busiest trading spot in the 1880s projected onto the material fabric of the buildings.
Historical gastronomy will be featured on the menu along with musical interludes inspired by the era and the courtyard ambience.
NB: The History High Tales is held in an outdoor venue. Please come prepared with suitable warm and waterproof clothing if the forecast predicts unfavourable conditions as this is an all-weather experience.
Sin and the City
Tuesday 20 April, 4:30pm
Max Burns-McRuvie brings you 'true tales of crime and debauchery from Sydney’s peculiar past’. Some of these crimes were horrific and drenched in blood. Others were crafty and left more mysteries than clues. Many were never solved and countless have been forgotten.
Wes and Allison Harder set the mood with soulful and juicy songs from the 20s, 30s and 40s. Enjoy jazz and swing with some cool blues for grooving at ‘Sin and the City’.
