Travel back to the underworld of 1920s and 30s Sydney and be entertained by mysterious illusionists, burlesque dancers, speak-easy musicians and fortune tellers. Spend time in the lockup with a true-crime storyteller, shoot your own silent-film scene or have your mug shot taken in the charge room. Unleash your dark side and design your own tattoo, contribute to a City of shadows crime-zine and learn razor-sharp card tricks.
Beat Prohibition – slink into the sly-grog den for cocktails and supper, and show off your gangster style for the chance to win prizes during this one-night-only event.
The Festivalists bring together artists, unusual spaces and new ideas to create stimulating, interactive cultural experiences.
