 You are invited to attend “PEEPSHOW: Chippendale... behind closed doors” from 2pm on Sunday 19th October produced by Queen Street Studio.

Take a voyeuristic urban safari and discover the secrets lurking behind the doors of the Chippendale community. Once an industrial slum, this eclectic suburb is now home to some of Sydney’s most innovative institutions and artists.

Guided tours will give audiences an intimate and interactive experience of the cultural life of this infamous precinct. Who knows where you’ll find yourself, what you'll experience or who you’ll be with.

Once completed, the tours will take audiences to ‘live-sites’ where you can soak up the entertainment at either FraserStudios, Pine St Creative Arts Centre, Notre Dame University or Cleveland St Theatre before embarking on a new tour to a new set of locations across Chippendale. Then to wrap up the event, the residents of Wellington St will turn on their hospitality and transform this laneway into a labyrinth of entertainment, culture and celebration until the wee hours.

PEEPSHOW is a FREE event thanks to the City of Sydney.
