  • Vivid Sydney

    If there’s one place in the world where creativity, innovation and technology shine bright, it’s Vivid Sydney, a festival of Light, Music and Ideas.

    Each year Vivid Sydney brings together light artists, music makers and brilliant minds to share their creativity with you. The festival celebrates Sydney as the creative hub of the Asia-Pacific with large-scale light installations and projections, free family events, cutting-edge music performances and thought-provoking ideas talks, workshops and conferences.

    The festival has been instrumental in driving visitation to Sydney and stimulating the city’s visitor economy in winter, traditionally a quieter period for visitation. In 2019, Vivid Sydney attracted over 2 million visitors and contributed millions of dollars to the NSW economy.

    Heading into its twelfth year in 2020, Vivid Sydney is the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and the largest event in Australia.

  • The Secret Garden

    When it premiered on Broadway, The Secret Garden took New York by storm. Rave reviews, Tony Awards and international productions all followed.

    Young, orphaned Mary Lennox arrives at her uncle’s home to find distant grieving relatives – and the mysterious tale of a secret garden. Together with new-found friends, Mary breathes life into the secret garden. She blossoms too, and through her adventures, tends to all the hearts around her.

    Australia’s leading man, Anthony Warlow, will once again create theatrical magic in the role of Archibald Craven.

    The sumptuous score contains a raft of wonderful songs, including ‘A Bit of Earth’, ‘Show Me the Key’, and the unforgettable ‘Lily’s Eyes’.
