Galah Bar

Join us throughout the year as the Butter Factory Theatre precinct comes alive with the ‘scratch and squawk’ of some beautifully eclectic regional talent.

Selected Fridays throughout the year.
All tickets $10*.

Since it’s re birth in 2016 the Galah Bar has gone from strength to strength. With Merv the Galah keeping a watchful beady birdy eye on proceedings, each night has showcased the newest and craziest acts from our region and beyond.

It’s a chance to test & tag original stuff and we have had quite a range so far – bands old and new, singers, trapeze, drag artists, poets, pole dancers, jugglers, belly dancers, trumpets, acrobatics, comedy and yes, some acts that can’t be labelled.

And who can forget our fantastic MC’s – Selma Fork, Rose Quartz, Kyle Walmsely and the old bird herself Aunt Ethyl.

Thank you to our amazing and eclectic performers from 2016 and 2017 so far:

Georgie Currie, Matt Ortiz, Bobby Whybrow, Kerryn Beatty, Pozer, Frances Pickles, Nathan & Jeremy Vaccaro, NEMEDA, The Space Boys, The Uke Muster, Robert Boyd, Olwen Steel, SWAG, Paul Dyason & Renn Piccard, Robert Marriot, Carm Hogan, The Squid Doctors, AJ Saltalamacchia, Helena Kernaghan, Rhiannon Ersser, Jason McDaniel, Timmy James, Zach Johnson, Lucy Tan, Peter Klein, Bruce Kreutzberger, Stephen O’Connell, Twin Cities RocknRoll, The Fruit Bats, Dillion Ingwersen, Adam & Natasha Kronenberg, Eleanor Tan, Kenneth Lindemann, Terry Moriarty, The Flying Fruit Fly Circus, Physipole Studios, Rose Quartz, Jaide Brussen, Rory Hutchinson, Kyle Walmsley, The Society Sisters, Odette Robbins, The Boston Lobsters…
