Kicking off with our first ever music gig, we thrilled to present Steve Grieve and The Mourners​ at the Palais Royale Hotel​ this Thursday 7th June. If you’re a fan of Allman Brothers, Gov’t Mule, Stevie Ray Vaughan or the Badloves, this show is absolutely up your street. View more.

In fact, Opening Night is now SOLD OUT… there are good tickets still available for the other dates, but don’t wait too long to grab them. There’s plenty of information on the official website goonshow.com.au. This is the Best British Belly Laugh Down Under.

Sock Buddies doing wheelbarrows, no hands!

With the July school holidays fast approaching, we’re continuing our tradition of shows especially for the little ones aged 2-8. This time we’re presenting The Marvellous Sock Machine​ at the wonderful Pigeon Lane at ONE88​. It’s a story of sock buddies, Spud and Gromit, who are inundated with washing soooo many socks – and they’re always losing them! What are they to do? An interactive show for kids, The Marvellous Sock Machine is a delightful 50-minute show featuring songs, loads of fun and plenty of Silly Sock Sensations! It is an interactive theatrical experience for children aged 2 – 8. Read more..

Stepping out of Katoomba and rolling down the hill to Penrith, we’re again staging The Goon Show LIVE! at a special Fathers’ Day weekend at the Penrith Gaels Cultural and Sporting Association​, presenting another 3 original cult episodes; an evening show on Saturday 1st September, and an afternoon matinée on Fathers’ Day Sunday 2nd.

Chrissie Shaw as 'Madame Bijou’ former Queen of the Demi-MondeOctober is going to be very special indeed. We’re lucky enough to be hosting the talented Chrissie Shaw as she revisits her show Bijou – a cabaret of Secrets and Seduction​, accompanied on piano by Alan Hicks. Bijou is a cabaret, yet it is also a play in disguise. It tells the story of a woman whose life is defined by wars. Theatre goers and lovers of cabaret alike will love Bijou, as will aficionados of fine music who will be treated to Poulenc, Saint-Saens, Debussy, Erik Satie, Jean Lenoir, Friedrich Hollander, Kurt Weill, Emil Jacques-Dalcroze etc. Those familiar with, or indeed studying French language, culture and history, literature, music etc. will particularly enjoy Bijou. Details and bookings.

We have more theatre and other live performance events on the way, which we will announce as dates and details are confirmed. In the meantime, be sure to keep an eye on our events pages on our website here or on Facebook.

Raving audiences are one thing, but returning CraZy People is another…

This here is Patrick, whose attendance at last Saturday’s dinner and show was his 4th The Goon Show LIVE! experience.

Here’s what he said after the show;

With only 4 shows left for this year’s Yulefest Blue Mountains at The Metropole in Katoomba, you’d better get those tickets booked.

A perfect night’s entertainment, great food and wonderful memories… it’s a night out for British Comedy fans.

the 3 blind mice in the kitchen, with volunteers from the audienceWow, the 3 Blind Mice have just performed their last show for these school holidays.

What FUN it has been… the audiences who’ve come along have enjoyed themselves almost as much as the Mice have.

Our Mice, Abby, Benji and Charlie, and all the other characters who appeared in the show, say ‘Thank You’ for coming along.

Thank you too to the staff and management of The Gingerbread House Katoomba, who’ve put up with all the scurrying around, and the bits of cheese that the Mice have been dropping everywhere.

Plans are already underway for our next school holiday show. If you want to be kept in the know about upcoming shows, subscribe on this Entertainment Blue Mountains webpage.

The amount of trouble our 3 Blind Mice get up in the MOUSEterChef kitchen! It’s enough to send the Crooked Man into a tizz, like it did in this morning’s show.

The Crooked Man, Mary Littlelamb and the 3 Blind Mice all have only 1 more show to go… come along, tomorrow, bring the kids and start your day with a bit of a laugh.
