“This year is all about putting entertainment and joy back on the agenda – with a focus on offering something for everyone.

“We love providing audiences from the Northern Beaches and beyond with premium entertainment options all year long and 2023 will set the bar even higher. Our community is craving story, live music, adventure, togetherness, and a bit of magic –and we will give it to them,” Gibson said.
