South Australia’s History Festival Opening Night

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 Assoc 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 5 pm–7.15 pm,
including pre-event drinks and canapés from 5 pm–6 pm;
panel discussion from 6 pm to 7 pm

Woodville Town Hall,
74-76 Woodville Road, Woodville South
