There's a new ladies night in town, but it's a far cry from the sessions of budget bubbly and trashy tunes you've encountered elsewhere. Instead, Camperdown's Lady Hampshire is launching a monthly pub session sans-stereotypes, promising a safe, fun and inclusive space for all female-identifying and non-cis bodies.
Proudly dubbed See You Next Tuesday (it runs the second Tuesday of each month), the event taps into the pub's laidback vibe, yet offers a program of kickass, female-friendly activities to boot. We're talking things like beer yoga, dancehall classes, clothes swaps and drives for local women's shelters, intergenerational trivia and workshops with the likes of cake queen Katherine Sabbath.
After a successful launch in November, the second party will celebrate all things chicks and Christmas (Chixmas, geddit?) on Tuesday, December 12. This time round comedian Gen Fricker will be on the mic, Love Actually will be playing on the courtyard big screen, DJs will keep things moving and a lip sync battle will go down at some point.
The SYNT Christmas special will also see a lineup of free Jameson cocktails and Frank Strongs boozy lemonade, and tacos will go for two for $10. The gloriously named Vadge Draw will be back too — $5 will get you entry into the monthly prize pool and your very own bronze clam keyring.
