Hello! We're back from having a few extra days off and chilling out over the Easter long weekend and Anzac day. May is looking like another fantastically busy month for the Gig Buddies Sydney team, full of plenty opportunities to get out and see sport, music and comedy. So read on and see what we have in store...
We kick off May with a night of comedy at the Enmore Theatre to see the hilarious Aussie comedian Akmal on Friday the 3rd of May. We only have one ticket left, so head to our online store if you’re interested (sorry, this event has now SOLD OUT).
The third year of our Cronulla Sharks charity partnership gets underway with the Round 10 match against Manly Sea Eagles at PointsBet Stadium (Shark Park) on the 19th of May. We also offer a return bus service and we will be having a bite to eat at the Club before the match. To find out more click here.
More exciting news if you love netball… Thanks to the NSW Swifts principal sponsor QBE, we have been generously gifted tickets for “The Derby”. Pick your local team to support as the NSW Swifts take on the Giants Netball team at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday the 16th of June. To find out more click here.
p.s. Two tickets are still available for the Swifts vs Fever game on the 12th of May.
