Soapbox at Speaker's Corner

When

Sundays, 12am to 8:30am Sunday 16 January to Sunday 30 January

Join us every Sunday during January for a free weekly salute to free speech, big ideas, rants, raves and good old fashioned ratbaggery.

For well over a hundred years Speaker’s Corner (located at the Domain) has witnessed a parade of colourful characters having their say about anything and everything from feminism to religion, politics to sexual revolution.

Sydney Festival salutes the original Speaker’s Corner with a curated line-up featuring some of Sydney’s best spruikers taking to our three Soapbox stages (running simultaneously) to stimulate, contemplate and possibly irritate and placate. Provocative entertainment ahead!

See the latest program on our website.
