History Festival Opening Night

A Special Opening Night Event

‘A lawyer, a journalist, an artist – and a historian walk into a bar….’

Join us for one night only at the historic Woodville Town Hall as MC, Dr Gertrude Glossip hosts: The Honourable Justice Mark Livesey QC, President of the Court of Appeal; Simon Royal, journalist and author; Dr Sera Waters, textile artist and academic; and Associate Professor Katie Barclay, Head of Department of History, University of Adelaide, as they debate the case for history in volatile times.

Savour wine tastings from the iconic and equally historic South Australian wine producer Penfolds from 5-6 pm. Then settle in for a rollicking ride of relevance, rebuttal, interrogation and irreverence, as four professionals explore universal truths through the lenses of the ‘what, why and how’ of South Australia’s history.

Thursday 28 April 5pm–7.15pm
including pre-event drinks and canapés from 5pm–6pm
panel discussion from 6pm to 7pm
