This June our region’s leading Arts & Culture organisation Naughty Noodle Fun Haus is bursting with something for everyone, from exciting new local and international partnerships & programming of free and ticketed events with Live Music, Broadway theatre, community socials & literary events.

Direct from NYC & courtesy of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival the celebrated NYC Vocalist & Comedic Monologist Amber Martin presents her Broadway World award nominated “Bathhouse Bette” cabaret, a tribute to the bawdy, sometimes naughty comedy, and beautiful music of iconic singer, actor and comedian Bette Midler in a celebration of the earliest bathhouse performances with her pianist at that time Barry Manilo. Special steamy surprise guest the brilliant Rupert Noffs (Lucky Bee) both will be accompanied by acclaimed MD/Pianist Jeremy Brenner.

Naughty Noodle Fun Haus has further partnered up with another of the Central Coast’s most dynamic & loved brands “Girrakool Blues Festival” for a curated live music series “Blues at the Fun Haus” the first “live session” which sold out almost immediately & speaks to the current climate. Who doesn’t want to check out a world class music gig when they are visiting a place like the Coast.

If it’s the literary that woos you the Noodle is co-hosting with Words on the Waves Writers Festival for an Evening with Richard Filder for “The Golden Maze”. Its history done the Fidler way; with humour of course.

Local and Community collaborations with the regions innovative brands continue with Gosford’s latest funky bar “The Lyons Den” hosting monthly “ThursGAY”, the last Thursday of every month as an “all welcome” social and creative upmarket after work drinks spot simultaneously providing a safe creative development space to nurture & amplify the ongoing local LGBTIQA+ creative sector community program.

“As an organisation with a focus on challenging perception of what the Central Coast is capable of delivering, this is where the fun happens, where creativity and exploration brings people together, connecting artist, audience, ideas and possibilities. It’s all part of our big, bold and vibrant vision as we intentionally build Central Coast collaborative, creative, culture networks with talented people, leading businesses and innovative organisations for a unique identity which has a front row seat at the Global contemporary, diverse, entertainment table”.
