The Galah Bar is back – remixed, refeathered and ready to squawk!




She’s back after 20 years: with a heavy-duty facelift and a false passport. Partly a homage to our history, but mostly a timely vote of confidence in our Border talent, the new and improved Galah Bar is a platform for local artists to tag and test evolving performance ideas in front of a live audience.

If you are an artist, you can get involved by expressing interest in performing at Galah Bar. Or you can be part of the audience at our inaugural Galah Bar on 15 April and help us celebrate the beginning of a whole new era of Friday night fun at the Butter Factory Theatre.

Galah Bar is a an unpaid (but loving) platform for local artists (professional, independent, retired, overlooked genius) to try out 5-15 minutes of new performance material in front of a live audience.  Theatre, comedy, cabaret, music, spoken word, plate-spinning, yodelling … if it’s genuinely interesting and created with love and talent, we’ll provide basic technical support, a stage and an audience.

If you want to talk to us about your act or piece, email or call Artistic Program Producer Beck Palmer: [email protected]  02 6021 7433

PS: Thank you to everyone who came along to the GALAH BAR Information Night on Monday 8 February.  We got some great feedback and ideas from the group. We also heard from people who attended the MRPG Galah Bar in the 80’s. Apparently a lot of fun was had!


Our first Galah Bar will be released into the wilds of the Butter Factory Theatre on April 15. Full details and bookings coming soon.

Stay tuned for more information! (You’ll definitely hear the the squawking!)
