The Aurora Group is pleased to present the fourth annual instalment of Fat Tuesday, to be held on Tuesday 22 February at Civic Dining, as part of the 2011 Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras season.

Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras) is a traditional feast, celebrated under many different names (including Carnival, Shrove Tuesday and Pancake Day) in a myriad of cultures. Now an established tradition for Aurora, this annual indulgence of food, wine, comedy and song has proved a hit for the past three years.

Aurora is excited to announce that Fat Tuesday IV will be held in the gorgeous dining room and cabaret space at Civic Dining, on Level 1 of The Civic, corner of Pitt & Goulburn Streets Sydney.

David Moutou, Aurora Chairperson, says “Fat Tuesday is traditionally a fun, indulgent and festive event where guests are treated to fabulous food in the perfect cabaret setting. It is one of the most cherished events of the Aurora annual calendar and we are delighted to showcase the event at Civic Dining.”

Tickets are $110, and includes a delicious menu of three courses, wines, and some of the finest singers and comedians in town.

Past Fat Tuesday dinners have included performances by Virginia Gay, Mark Trevorrow, Jackie Loeb, Hayden Tee, Denise Hanlon and special appearances by singing socialite ‘Second Hand Rose’ Hancock-Porteous, international musical therapist Jan van de Stool and last year’s hair-raising turn by Rosa the Russian Beautician.
