Now in its sensational eighth year, The Gangsters’ Ball is on its way back to Sydney, Brisbane & Melbourne this September!

A fully themed night of interactive and non-stop entertainment, The Gangsters’ Ball brings to life the fashion, style, humour and classic entertainment of the 1930s and 40s. Modern day Mobsters and Molls can step back in time to a bygone era where men wore three-piece suits and fedoras, women wore feathers and pill box hats, big bands ruled the airwaves and gangsters ruled the streets.

Featuring the biggest names in Australian & International cabaret, sideshow vaudeville, burlesque and big band swing, this is an event like no other and one not to be missed.

This year’s headline acts include MC chanteuse & Gangsters’ Ball favourite Aurora Kurth, Miss Burlesque Australia 2014 winner Zelia Rose, Miss Burlesque Australia 2011 winner Sina King, Magicians & illusionists Richard Vegas & Julia Madotti, Acrobats & Circus Performers Acrobatica with Kali Retallack and Foot Juggler extraordinaire Zoe Robbins with more acts to be announced in the coming weeks.
