Leaves & Lashes: High Tea & The Art Of Flogging

13 Nov 2019 from 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Leaves and Lashes performance

Leaves and Lashes: High Tea and the Art of Flogging is a site-specific performance in one of the most singular historic buildings of Newcastle, The Lock-Up. Once an old police station, this place of former incarceration and control is now a recognised contemporary art centre; doors which were locked are now opened for unleashed creative freedom.

Exploring the building’s multiple layers of usage as graduating Creative and Performing Arts students invite you into an immersive performance, on a journey among walls, whispering voices, and more…

Doors open at 7:00pm and your ticket includes one complimentary drink on arrival and high tea.

Tickets available now here.


This performance makes up part of the School Of Creative Industries' FESTIVAL X being held 13-17 November, across the University’s vibrant city campus and beyond.
