Do you love nothing more than having your ribs tickled while quaffing some of the best wine the Hunter Valley has to offer?
Well, you’re in luck because some of the country’s top mirth makers are headed to The Station next month for Grapes of Mirth.
After a killer 2019 lineup that saw the likes of Sam Simmons, Merrick Watts, Denise Scott and Health Franklin, split sides left right and centre, this year’s iteration has hit it out of the park with a bill led by lauded funnyman and self-described Australia’s premier dickhead Tommy Little, and Liberal Party botherer Tom Ballard.
If that wasn’t enough, the line-up is rounded out by Merrick Watts making a welcome return to The Station, adopted KIwi jokester Cal Wilson, former journalist, mum of two and one of the freshest voices on the Oz comedy circuit Chris Ryan, the introspective humour of Melbourne International Comedy Festival best newcomer recipient Lewis Graham, while DJ Pedro Moshman will bring the beats between sets.
On the wine side of things, you can expect a line-up as stellar as the comedy with the likes of Peter Drayton Wines, Thomas Wines, First Creek Wines, Hart & Hunter, De Iuliis Wines, and Glandore Estate Wines, bringing lashings of their top drops for you to enjoy and, if wine isn’t your thing, never mind because the good folks at Ironbark Brewing will keep the amber fluid pouring all day.
You’re going to need some top quality grub to cap all of this off and Grapes of Mirth has you covered with cheese hampers available for pre-purchase and there will be four local food trucks on site to keep those taste buds happy!
Grapes of Mirth is on at The Station on Saturday 8 May. Get tour tickets here.
