Kings Bloody Cross: Tales of the Criminale and Glitterati

27 May - 11 Jun 2017 11:15 - 14:00
The World Bar, 24 Bayswater Rd, Kings Cross NSW 2011


A curated season of raw and riveting 'in conversation' events featuring Kings Cross luminaries. Rub shoulders with artists, idealists and opportunists and hear fascinating stories about 'ungentrified' Sydney — the heady days of rock 'n' roll, free love, corruption, opportunity, sex and politics during the twentieth century. Presented over three weekends, Kings Bloody Cross will engage audiences with thrilling insight into the dirty half mile's people, bohemia and place. 

Twelve scintillating sessions, covering everything from Sydney hedonism as photographed by Rennie Ellis (Surface Glitter and Underground Guts), backstage secrets with Les Girls (Queens of the Cross), brothel gentrification and the hang over from free love (Sex and the City), working with crooked detectives (The Underbelly Experience), ripping yarns from the Bourbon & Beefsteak piano man (The Noise Next Door), living in protest (Radical Sydney) and the fading Dirty Half Mile — will we still write about it?

Curated By Olivia Ansell. 

Presented by Live Ideas and Working Management.
