Barry Humphries at the Palladium – a last minute Christmas treat from Qantas!
Well possums, you know I DO love you all. So, when Qantas contacted me and offered me a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky London-Unattached reader I jumped at the chance!
Maybe you didn’t realise that this could be your last opportunity to catch legendary entertainer Barry Humphries in London – he has just embarked upon his final tour in the UK – Eat, Pray, Laugh!, presented by Qantas Airlines.
In a performance that has been garnering huge praise and 5 star reviews, Humphries brings the characters that have made him one of the nation’s favourite entertainers to London, including the gentle Sandy Stone, the bawdy and inebriated cultural attaché Sir Les Patterson and, of course, the legendary Dame Edna.
Still going strong after over 50 years in the limelight, Dame Edna has taken a special place in the nation’s hearts ever since the ‘Gigastar’ housewife first appeared on the showbiz scene in the 1950’s. Since then, Dame Edna has created much-cherished memories with fans across the globe, firmly establishing herself as one of Australia’s greatest cultural exports.
Bringing the curtain down on a wonderful career and a host of beloved characters, Barry Humphries’ Farewell Tour has arrived in London. Join Barry as Dame Edna says ‘Goodbye Possums’ at the Palladium right up until January 4th 2014. As another of Australia’s global icons, Qantas are supporting the tour as the official airline and presenting partner.
If you’ve come to love Barry and his characters then take one of Qantas’ flights to Australia and discover the country that produced this truly one-off comedy legend. Visit Melbourne in Victoria, Australia’s capital of culture and the city where Barry got his start performing with the Melbourne Theatre Company as well as the location of Dame Edna’s first appearance. If you share Sir Les’s proclivity for a tipple of wine then head to South Australia & Adelaide – the state is responsible for over half of Australia’s wine production; Adelaide alone has over 600 cellars in its vicinity. Although you may be tempted we wouldn’t recommend indulging quite as much as the cultural attaché would.
Whatever you’re looking for Australia will provide, and whichever part of Australia you want to visit, Qantas, the Spirit of Australia, will deliver you there in comfort.
