THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED

In response to the continued COVID-19 pandemic this event has been postponed from October 2020 to June 2021.

All tickets purchased for the original dates will be valid for the rescheduled date; you don’t need to do anything. If you are unable to attend the new date, you can request a refund by contacting the ticketing agent you purchased from. We, and all of those behind the scenes who produce the show, would very much appreciate it if you would retain your tickets for the new date if you are able to.

One of the world’s great minds brings it back home, to challenge fellow Australians and to explain what is happening in and to the world.

Experience a provocative, insightful and witty evening with international human rights judge and barrister Geoffrey Robertson QC, as he analyses Brexit and Trump in a post-truth era and calls for Australia’s constitutional regeneration after the bushfires. He will explain what is really happening to the royal family and to Julian Assange, how fake news distorts democracy and why the rich will inherit the earth.

This is a show that will give you an insight into Geoffrey Robertson’s life and famous cases, and his current crusade to restore cultural property to the people – including Indigenous Australians – from whom it has been stolen. Geoffrey Robertson AO QC is a barrister, author and one-time host of “Geoffrey Robertson’s Hypotheticals” on the ABC. He is founder and head of Doughty Street Chambers; now the largest human rights practice in Europe; where he has been a mentor to Amal Clooney, Jen Robinson, Keir Starmer and others.

Robertson was born and bred in Sydney. A Rhodes scholarship took him to England where he is now based, and he holds dual citizenship. He is a Master of the Middle Temple and a visiting professor at the New College of Humanities. His autobiography, “Rather His Own Man – In Courts with Tyrants, Tarts and Troublemakers” was published by Penguin/Random House in 2018.
