Heart of St Kilda Concert

The Sacred Heart Mission 365 days of the year helps hundreds of people who are suffering from homelessness or living in poverty to find care, support and shelter and a hot meal. For the ninth year running, The Heart of St Kilda Concert, held at the beautiful Palais Theatre in St Kilda will play host to a fantastic line-up of comedy and music acts including Russell Morris, Kutcha Edwards, Shan Howard, Olympia and The Umbilical Brothers (with more artists to be announced closer to the date) and raise much needed funds for the Mission and it’s work. The Sacred Heart Mission serves up over 160,000 meals every year from its Grey Street, St Kilda dining hall, and last year the concert raised a massive $79,000 for the Mission’s program which helped to feed nearly 20,000 people in need. This St Kilda concert will feature RockWiz host Brian Nankervis as MC, tickets start from $79 (available via Ticketmaster) and will sell out quickly.
