Late Night Library: Letters of Complaint
Join some of Sydney’s leading performers as they share the best, worst and most bizarre letters of complaint from the deep recesses of the City of Sydney archives. From a noisy sausage machine, to the bothersome smell of boiling tripe, this Late Night Library event indulges in a long list of comical neighbourly gripes.
Settle in to the Customs House Reading Room and rediscover Sydney’s history in the words of those who lived in here.
