Thursday 14 September - BINGAY THE MUSICAL!


There’s No Business Like Show Business! So get ready to Defy Gravity at our 5th annual BINGAY THE MUSICAL, upstairs at The Beresford Hotel.

Our show-stopping hosts Charisma Belle and Naomi Palmer are ready to pay tribute to the wonderful world of musicals, so get into the Room Where it Happens and make sure you’re ready for All That Jazz!

BINGAY THE MUSICAL will be a showtune-lovers delight. Come as your favourite character – there’ll be fun prizes for best dressed! From the glam (think Legally Blonde, Chicago), cheeky (think Kinky Boots, School of Rock) and the whimsical (think The Lion King, Matilda) to the riveting (think A Chorus Line, Les Miserables), affirming (think Hairspray, West Side Story) and the heartwarming (think Billy Elliot, Wicked).

The hosts will raise the roof with their trademark naughty calls, cheeky banter and hilarious stories. Gird your loins - it's going to be a hoot!

Dropping balls since 1999, BINGAY is a much-loved Gay Sydney institution raising funds for ACON, NSW's leading LGBTQ health organisation. All funds raised go to programs and services supporting the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people in NSW.

So come along, have fun and help a great cause - all at the same time. It'll be a smash!
