What a night we had at Camelot!

Camelot Lounge was busting at its seams last night with a house full of doctors and their friends and family for the annual performers gig. It was a night of exciting, varied and high quality entertainment. Who'd have thought that bagpipes and burlesque could work so well on the same bill!

Many thanks to the entertainers for their fabulous efforts and the audience for rolling up in great supportive numbers. Thanks too to the fabulous staff at Camelot who have now hosted SIX wonderful shows for us.
But most of all, thanks to Judith Babich from Active Locums who has unfailingly supported us as our sponsor for all these years.
This is what Judith has had to say about Performer's Night 2017:
"Huge congratulations to you all for another wonderful event  at Camelot last night.  The Performers Night was, as always, very inspiring and there were  many highlights.  It was a great turnout and an interesting and well balanced mix of doctors and medical students. 

Active Locums Pty Ltd  is very proud to sponsor such a fine and talented group of doctor performers  which allows them to explore and nurture their creative side. Everyone had wonderful time and I am already looking forward to next year's performance."

We'll post some pictures when Howard has recovered enough to provide them!

Here are some more doctor-friendly events coming up in 2017 that you might like to know about:

Doctors Gerard Ingham and Genevieve Yates
  • From 14th to 17th September the Parade Theatre in Randwick will host "GP: The Musical" on the back of last year's sold out season in Melbourne with a cast of talented doctors. The show was written by NSW GP Genevieve Yates (on whose blog you can find photos and video clips of the musical and possibly even some familiar faces) and Victorian GP Gerard Ingham. Tickets are available on the NIDA website  

  • On Thursday 5th October Creative Doctors present our Visual Arts Night at  North Sydney Community Centre. Doctor artists are invited to show their visual art accomplishments - from photography to felting, portraits to pastels, bookbinding to beading, sculpture to sandcastles - everything is welcome as long as we can see it and it's art and a doctor (or medical student) did it. More details later on the blog.

Special guest at the concert will be Slava Grigorian who will play the wonderful Rodrigo guitar concerto! More details on their website soon.
