Classical Storytelling With Jonathan Drew

Open Fridays Event - Unwind in The Joan’s Borland Lounge after the working week with a drink under the fairy lights

Join Jonathan Drew as he brings the story, The Odyssey – A Long Journey Home, to life through dynamic storytelling.

Odysseus, one of the greatest heroes of all time, yet also seen as the first modern man, gives us an invitation to make our way through the impossibilities, losses, and dangers of our lives to a place of self-realisation and rest.

Admission to Classical Storytelling with Jonathan Drew is free and tickets are not required. You’re welcome to just walk right in, sit back and listen. And enjoy some fine tapas while you’re at it.

Tapas Menu (indicative – may change due to availability of produce):

  • Small Plate: Brie, quince paste and crackers – $7
  • Full Board: Selection of 3 cheeses, cured meats, dried fruit and crackers – $15

Doors open from 5pm, and while finishing times may vary, the timing will be perfect if you’re seeing a show, going out locally for dinner, or just popping in for a post-work drink before the weekend. Generally it’ll be last drinks by 7.30pm.

Open Fridays is supported by the NSW Government as part of the Culture Up Late: Western Sydney program via Create NSW.
