Sing your heart out at live band karaoke
If you haven’t yet discovered Jams Karaoke Bar, it's about time you did. Transport yourself to Japan at this quaint bar where you can enjoy delicious drinks, soul food, and of course great music. The best part…every Friday night you can perform karaoke with live band back-ups! If that's not enough to tempt you, the bar also features a few impressive special touches including hi-tech Japanese toilets and an extensive range of Sake.
Get hands on at workshops to celebrate Mardi Gras
If you can't make it to Sydney for the Mardi Gras parade, book yourself a spot at one of the Playstate Curate workshops to celebrate the event in a different and creative way. On Friday 4 and Saturday 5 March there will be Life Drawing Workshops with Luxwasps and Trash Drawing Workshops with Wayde Thomas. The events will also celebrate the new space that is Playstate Curate, a hub for local artists to create, express and connect.
Catch all the action at brawl in City Hall
If you're looking for some world class explosive action, get yourself a ticket to Newcastle Pro Wrestling's Brawl in City Hall on Friday 11 March. Featuring a middleweight championship match one year in the making, international wrestling star Robbie Eagles, tag team bouts, women's wrestling, and much more, Brawl at City Hall will turn our town on its head again as Professional Wrestling returns to Newcastle City Hall for an epic night of entertainment.
Enjoy an adults-only night at the Spiegeltent Newcastle
Save the date…the highly anticipated Spiegeltent Newcastle returns to Civic Park from 31 March with incredibly talented performers and some big surprises. Taking up residence in the opulent Spiegeltent is Blanc de Blanc Encore, the ultimate hedonistic night out that's champagne-soaked, breath-taking, hilarious, and adults only.
