Last Saturday night at the Metropole Hotel, Katoomba, Leanne celebrated stepping over the hill is style, with an American 1920s Gatsby themed Murder Party, hosted by the Murder Master.

It was a Scream!

Everyone went to a lot of trouble with their costumes… and the cake, that was something very special.

Last Dickens Murder for Yulefest 2017

Last night (Friday 28th July) was our last A Dickens  Bloody Christmas murder mystery dinner for Yulefest Blue Mountains at The George Boutique Hotel in Blackheath.

The team from LionCo turned up ready for fun.. and they jumped into frivolities right from the get-go.

It was a night with lots of laughs – deadly serious business really.

Murderous Fun

Last night’s Murder Dinner at The George Boutique Hotel was bloody great!

The gang from Hyster-Yale dressed up (or down) brilliantly, and played their parts with great gusto!

Good food, good fun… a night to die laughing.

Hi-Jinx with the Goons on a High

Yes yes yes yes YES!

Last night’s Yulefest dinner and show at the Metropole was as CraZy as it gets!

We ended up having to find an IMPOSTER! because our own John Stretton a.k.a. Peter Sellers was struck down by a severe case of the Lurgi the night before and was unable to perform.

So while John was resting up (probably with a Brandy or two), we procured the services of accomplished actor and voice-over artiste Peter McAllum, who stepped up and onto the stage with the rest of the lads… and they had one wild time up there.

Today’s special afternoon tea and show is on at 3pm… there a few tickets left, which you’d better grab because all the rest of the tickets for next week’s closing show are sold out.

Ho Ho Ho it’s the The Goon Show…. LIVE!

Here’s Simon Lenthen aka Neddy Seagoon giving the camera the full force of the Christmas-in-July festivities.

Last Saturday’s show was a hit.

On Saturday 15th July at the Metropole Katoomba, the audience were packed in and settled down for a great night.

They especially enjoyed the special extra episode, Christmas Crackers, which has not been heard since it was first broadcast on Christmas Day 1953.

Some reviews of that night will be posted soon, but in the meantime, be sure to pick up some tickets for this weekend’;s shows; Saturday night 22nd Yulefest dinner & show, and Sunday 23rd afternoon tea and show.

The Sunday show is going be a very special one… it’s our 50th The Goon Show LIVE! performance.
