Featuring the ‘Dames of Decriminalisation’ Julie Bates AO and Dame Catherine Healy, the discussion will revolve around the best approach to changing existing laws and attitudes towards sex work.
Running between April 5 to 14 in more than 120 venues across Adelaide and regions, Tasting Australia packed program of intimate dinners, long lunches, culinary day-trips, classes, wine tasting sessions and more will feature over 70 Michelin-starred and award-winning chefs and winemakers from around the world.

Tom Araya engaging with the crowd at the end of the show was also a highlight, displaying that he is a humble man who truly appreciates how loyal the Slayer army is.

Kathy Lette’s Big Night Out is polished to perfection, which at times, takes away from the rawness of stories that she tells. That being said, there is no doubt, that Lette is an iconic Aussie with a powerful message of female empowerment in a Trumpified, #MeToo world.
