Leading cabaret artists, Drew Downing and Sally Bourne have been announced as the 2019 Melbourne Cabaret Festival Ambassadors.

Festival co-producer David Read said “We have worked alongside Drew and Sally in previous cabaret festivals and have always been struck by their creativity and professionalism.  They are strongly admired within the industry by performers and producers alike.  They will be an additional source of support for all performers in this year’s line-up, which will be announced in the coming weeks.  “We are honoured in our tenth anniversary year they have agreed to be our Ambassadors.’’

Drew Downing said “The Melbourne Cabaret Festival is the perfect place to trial original works or launch a major concert. There’s a show and a seat for everyone.”

Sally Bourne said “I’ve been performing in cabaret for over 20 years in Australia and in London. I was privileged to be one of the headline acts at the inaugural Melbourne Cabaret Festival 10 years ago and since then have watched the festival grow and continue to present some of the best talent around.”
