Illustrated Talk  


"ASTRO-ARCHAEOLOGY IN LANKA" 

 

Do you believe that some ancient historical events in Sri Lanka can be linked to astronomical events?

Are there events in our recorded chronicles that precisely match astronomical events?

Is it possible that events our ancients' thought were miracles could have been astronomical events? 

Come and listen to this thought-provoking illustrated talk, to hear for yourself modern interpretations and evidence of ancient Sri Lankan history, using AstroArchaeology.  


This illustrated talk is presented by Dr Kavan Ratnatunga an eminent qualified astrophysicist, in association with the Melbourne Chapter of the Ceylon Society of Australia.  

At The ASHWOOD HALL 2, 21a Electra Avenue, Ashwood.  

A FREE event open to all those with an interest in Sri Lankan history.

Comedy Show

NAZEEM HUSSAIN - Basic Idiot 



It’s been a massive year for Nazeem. He became a Dad, his sketch show Orange Is The New Brown began airing on Channel 7, he recorded his first Netflix special and he was finally invited to speak at his high school assembly (Rex Hunt pulled out). But more than fatherhood itself, Nazeem is most excited about joking about these things and more on stage! If you’ve never seen Nazeem, where have you been? Selling out shows across Australia, New Zealand, Edinburgh, London, China, Malaysia, Montreal and even Sri Lanka, Nazeem is a comedian at the top of his game. Twice nominated for a Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer, you don’t want to miss his fifth consecutive solo show. 'There wasn’t a flat joke in the set, nor a pause that didn’t lead to a laugh. No dead spots, no misfires, no flubs.' Herald Sun

DILRUK JAYASINHA - Cheat Day(s) 



Dilruk Jayasinha has quickly become one of Australia’s favourite comedians. So much so that he won the 2018 Logie for Most Popular New Talent. His small screen star may be soaring but Dil’s finest work is all on stage. His live shows have been consistently received with popular and critical acclaim, and his most recent tour culminated with knockout performances at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and London’s Soho Theatre.

Now, he’s returning with a brand-new hour about how he cheated his way to a healthier and more active lifestyle.

'Slick, confident and talented performer. ★★★★' The Age 'A brilliant hour. ★★★★' Herald Sun
