Adding zing to the lives of Sydneysiders, RUNAWAY Gardens returns on Tuesday 16 August to its iconic harbourside location at The Rocks, setting fire to the mid-winter blues with lashings of music, cabaret, drag, and comedy, for Sydney Fringe Festival 2022.

Central to the awe-inspiring artistry and uninhibited festivity of RUNAWAY Gardens is the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent. Step into the opulent interior with its warm wood finishes, sumptuous velvet, bevelled mirrors, and stunning stained-glass windows, and settle in for a night designed to be unique, intoxicating, and custom-made for thrill seekers, romantics, heartbreakers, and dream chasers.

Risqué but always extraordinary, the queen of Weimar punk returns with a six-week season of the world-wide smash hit Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett. From dazzling spectacles of sword swallowing and hair hanging to boundary pushing burlesque and jaw dropping Cirque Du Soleil aerialists it will be a night of full-frontal fabulousness.

But the artistic and aesthetic adventures don’t end there! There’s a huge program of creativity on offer in the elaborate mirrored tent…

Catch the RUNAWAY Legends, a unique series of performances from bona fide legends of the Australian music scene. These live and intimate performances from musicians including Daryl Braithwaite, Kate Ceberano, Diesel, Renee Geyer, Richard Clapton, Ross Wilson & The Peaceniks, and The Black Sorrows will be a nostalgic night out you’ll never forget!

Adding extra variety to the musical lineup, RUNAWAY Gardens will also feature 2 special Friday Up Late gigs from multi-ARIA award-nominated artists Odette and Jack Ladder.

The RUNAWAY Festival Club lock-in offers over 18s the chance to catch the BEST of the FEST each Thursday night, with a different lineup of handpicked artists. Daring, dangerous, funny, smoking hot and definitely not for the faint-hearted, there’ll be comics, cabaret, circus, and crooners, all backed by the house jazz band fuelled by plenty of gin (it’s basically the law). Rub shoulders with performers and catch the eye of strangers in the reflection of the glittering mirrors. It’s bound to be wild and wonderful.

If it’s a hotbed of wit and comedy you’re after, the RUNAWAY Comedy Allstars will deliver a series of solo shows by some of the biggest names in comedy touring Australia including Arj Barker, Jimeoin, Akmal, Lawrence Mooney. Not to mention the special star-studded one off Multicultural Comedy Gala including Dilruk Jayasinha, Georgie Carroll, Tahir. The RUNAWAY Comedy Allstars will bring the hysterical, the provocative, the wry observations and the jibes in an unstoppable onslaught of gags, while you provide the laughter. What happens in the Spiegeltent stays in the Spiegeltent!

If spending time with a bunch of queens, a bar stacked with mimosas sounds like your version of heaven, then you’ll want a ticket to the POOF DOOF DRAG BRUNCH CLUB. Enjoy a full-tilt showcase of Australia's dazzling drag, comedy, burlesque and cabaret superstars (not to mention the legendary mimosa hours) – it’s a limited season so drink up biatches!

Know nothing about wine? Learn from the man who is simultaneously an idiot and an expert in the comedy show Merrick Watt’s Idiot’s Guide to Wine – two performances only so snap up tickets.

Planning a catch up with friends or a hot date, the gorgeous outdoor bar and pop-up restaurant at RUNAWAY Gardens is ideal. Treat yourself to seasonal, locally inspired gourmet food and beverages, pre- or post-show, and all with a backdrop of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, if you don’t hardly mind!

Open from 4-10pm Tuesday to Thursday, and 12 noon to 11pm (Friday and Saturday) and 10pm (Sunday) on weekends, RUNAWAY Gardens will set the Sydney entertainment scene ablaze for six sizzling weeks.

Don’t miss out – indulge and inspire your nocturnal imaginings at RUNAWAY Gardens. Sell your soul for a ticket! Chop-chop!
