What should I expect?
The Goblin Ball is a unique event. There is music, dancing and drinking with friends old and new. Cabaret and burlesque performances highlight the evening and keep spirits high while an engaging mythology unfolds through the night. Guests celebrate with their friends or soak up the experience in an extravagant environment. Those who wish to celebrate can turn up and expect to be mesmerised.
Guests are encouraged to explore the many stories from other worlds as they play out around them. Creating costumes and sometimes characters, guests who wish to experience a little more are encouraged to read up on the mythology and attend as their own character for the evening.
Your journey is up to you.
Is there an age restriction?
Guests must be 18+ to attend The Goblin Ball.
Are costumes mandatory?
To help with the immersion, guests are encouraged to dress in costumes fitting the theme, or formal attire. Fantasy costumes are encouraged for those wishing to take a chance at being crowned as best dressed.
Do I need to know the story before I attend?
Not at all! The Goblin Ball fosters an environment of exploration and celebration. You can come and enjoy the entertainment and dancing and the rest is completely up to you. We have some traditions you may want to read up on in The Mythology section, but your enjoyment and engagement is completely up to you!
What entertainment should I expect?
Featuring performances from some of Australia’s greatest artists, and occasionally international stars The Goblin Ball has a number of Pop-Up and scripted acts. The evening is a scripted FairyTale where guests are encouraged (but not required) to engage with. Character actors roam the kingdom engaging guests to complete tasks, quests or even pledge allegiance to their cause. As always the dance floor gathers much attention, and guests can often find fairies and goblins busting a move through the night.
What is Trinket Trading?
One of the unique traditions at The Goblin Ball is trinket trading. Long time guests and new guests like to bring small offerings for the fairies and trade them between each other to take home as memento of the night. This is completely optional, and our magical creatures will sometimes have a small gift for you in exchange for a small task or quest. There is more information on Trinket Trading here.
Are there any themes I should be aware of?
The Goblin Ball deals with themes of murder, death, magical violence, pagan themes and simulated drama. If you have any concerns about the event and wish to contact us you can do so here.
As The Goblin Ball switches venues each year, please refer to the Venue Website for limitations of accessibility before booking. While we aim to return to our more significant locations in due time, external factors such as attendance and costs require us to make compromises. Our intention is never to exclude, and we do our best with the available resources.
