Gather at the Fireside

Gather at the Fireside

The cold winter nights have settled across the Gold Coast but as we start to peek from under the covid-blanket, we’re delighted to announce our FIRESIDE program. We might be working in a smaller (restriction compliant) scale just now but we’re SO happy to be delivering live events again!

From 10 July, FIRESIDE will take place over four weekends, bringing together great art, food, and conversation. With the glitter strip twinkling across the HOTA lake, we’ll be serving up the best homegrown talent in the cosy setting of our Lakeside Room.

As the artists take centre-stage we invite you to gather your friends, enjoy a glass (or two) of wine and bite to eat. It’s the perfect prescription to chase away the winter blues.

Every Saturday night we’ll switch off the ghost light at FIRESIDE and turn on the spotlight for HOTA faves like Circa and Camerata, music legends Tex Perkins and Dani Im.

Friday nights are raw and edgy. FIRESIDE: Fringe is all about quirky cabaret, great comedy, and outrageous fun. Best enjoyed with friends who love a laugh.

Behind the scenes insights into the creation of new works from some incredible artists are served up at FIRESIDE: Unfiltered on Saturday afternoon. Catch a play reading, listen to a new opera in development, and hear from the artists themselves.

That laid-back Sunday afternoon vibe at FIRESIDE: Live Lounge will round off your weekend with live music, spoken word, and delicious food fresh from the grill.

The Fireside series, all neatly packaged up with food and drinks, will remind you why you love HOTA so much.

Check out the full program here and start making plans to get your friends together.

We can’t wait to see you by the Fireside!
