My Darling Hearts, The Ballarat Cabaret Festival has returned!

We have heard your calls for the return of cabaret to Ballarat and we have answered. 
Cabaret has been a central part of the culture of Ballarat since the very beginning. 
Ballarat Cabaret Festival pays its respects to the traditional owners of the land, the Wadawurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation and honors their traditional songs and dances connected to this land. 
In the times of the gold rush Ballarat's halls of celebration were filled with cabaret. We were graced by the stratospheric arias of Dame Nellie Melba and the sensuous dances of Lola Montez as well as many more. 
The Ballarat Cabaret Festival has been brought back under the direction of operatic cabaret sweetheart Issie Hart (They/Them). Hart is an internationally established cabaret artist with Ballarat roots. They are passionate about Cabaret and passionate about Ballarat.
