“A Night at the Museum” with a distinctly Moulin Rouge flavour is a night not to be missed at the Mareeba Heritage Museum on 13 April.

The event is a museum fundraiser, adults-only extravaganza, Moulin Rouge-themed evening of circus, fire eater, acrobats, knife throwing, dancing and live music.

It promises to be a fusion of glamour, music and carnival brought by Dream State Entertainment.

The entire outdoor museum will be utilised, with acts, shows, food, drinks, seating and dancing areas all around the venue.

Guests will revel in the sight of daring acrobats, mesmerising fire dancers, and captivating performers who will ignite the imagination.

The Mareeba Heritage Museum hosted the event back in 2021 and, due to it being such a great success, wanted to bring it back this year.

Museum manager Sandrine Gloton says attendees can sip on seductive cocktails while immersing themselves in the glamour and mystique of Parisian cabaret.

“Dress to impress in your finest attire, whether it’s feathers, sequins, or top hats – the more extravagant, the better,” she said.

“Unleash your inner showstopper and become part of the spectacle. Lose yourself in the rhythm of the night as live music fills the air, beckoning you to dance beneath the glittering lights of our circus-inspired ambiance.”

Patrons can also expect to be dazzled by daring acrobatics and mesmerising performances, adding an extra layer of enchantment to an already unforgettable evening.

The dress code is black tie or cocktail, Moulin Rouge themed, with prizes for best dressed, group, male and female.

Food and drinks are available on the night. To book go to Eventbrite, put in Mareeba as the location and search for “A Night at the Museum”.

Patrons are advised to keep their ticket handy, either in the Eventbrite app, on their mobile device or on a printout.
