Night Shift: Vintage Valentines

two women throwing paper hearts

This year we celebrate love, lust and everything in between with a vintage-inspired Valentine’s day event.

In addition to exploring the galleries, you can dance to live music by Hank Angel and chill out with Sarah Osbourne and Elder Sister Plum. DJs db Chessa and Hristo will both bring vintage soul, funk and disco on vinyl to the galleries. Capture the moment at our photo booth, create your own vintage valentine at the craft station and take part in some of the many activities taking place throughout the night including a burlesque performance by the House of Cheek. House of Cheek Productions brings intersectional and inspiring burlesque for Victoria audiences with a bit of sensuality.... a dash of comedy... and a whole lot of cheek.

This adult-only evening is sure to get your heart racing.
