NO LIGHTS NO LYCRA: Newcastle joins global National Bushfire Disaster Appeal charity drive

National Bushfire Disaster Appeal event – Wednesday 5 February

No Lights No Lycra in Newcastle has joined its partners around the globe to donate 100% of their fees this week to the National Bushfire Disaster Appeal.

All money raised will go directly to charities that are helping communities, environments and wildlife to recover from the devastating fires that have been ravaging the country here in Australia.

So if you’ve never been to a No Lights No Lycra, this is the perfect opportunity.


As we told you a few months ago, No Lights No Lycra (or NLNL as it’s known to its devotees) is a global dance community providing an inclusive and non-judgmental place for people to explore this notion. NLNL brings people together to experience the freedom of self-expression and joy.

Basically, it gives you the chance to dance like no-one is watching… because they literally can not see you.

You’re in complete darkness, getting sweaty while you dance for an hour to an eclectic mix of great tunes. And you’re in great company too, not that you’ll get the chance for chats with your mates. It’s a non-judgmental group of people who love to cut some mad shapes on the dance floor.


Everyone is welcome to come along. Even kids are welcome, as long as they are accompanied by an adult

There will also be a collection jar at the door where you can put in any extra donations.

WHERE: Polish Association of Newcastle
ADDRESS: Community Hall at 122 Chatham Street Broadmeadow
WHEN: Wednesday 5 February
TIME: 6.30 pm – 7.30 pm
ENTRY FEE: $8 (cash only but change is available)
