Setting up at The Station (est. 1858), this iconic Newcastle venue will host over 6 hours of comedy with six of the country’s best headline comedians taking to the stage. Grapes of Mirth Head Clown, Merrick Watts, said he’ll be bringing an epic comedy line-up and some much-needed laughs to Newcastle and the Hunter Region.

“After the 2020 we experienced, we are desperate to get back out there in 2021 with a bang, a bunch of smiles, and some much-needed vino. We’ve also handpicked six Hunter Valley producers to create a wine region “pop-up” in urban Newcastle”, explained Merrick Watts.
