Sydney Festival 2014 Opening Night Party

The Sydney Festival Opening night party on Thursday gave us a chance to experience a preview of some of the performers and acts in the Festival programme. It was held at The Star Event Centre. Some of the performances during the night included Amanda Palmer, and Limbo with a variety of dancers and they even performed collectively.

Upon entering the Event Centre foyer, we were bedazzled by the chocolate and strawberry fountains surrounded by fruit, Adriano Zumbo macaroons, jellies, milk bottle lollies and more treats. Canapés of samosas, seared-salmon sushi, heirloom tomato tart with red onion and goats cheese, and prawn wontons. A buffet including a variety of dumplings and steamed buns, lamb chops, and garlic mash was provided. Rekorderlig cider, beer and wines were served up. We could go back and forth between the Event Centre and the stunning alfresco views and games at Sky Terrace.

A great party to honour the organisers and volunteers of the Festival!
