Delve into daily current affairs with a drink in hand at Barangaroo House

React in real time, delve beyond click-bait headlines and understand the world better. Every weeknight of Vivid Sydney, kick back with a drink and watch as the brightest minds dissect and debate the breaking stories of the day.

This up-to-the-minute, nightly deep-dive into current affairs and the daily news cycle is moderated by the brilliant Tom Wright and features a rotating selection of high-profile change-makers, analysts and experts.

Engage with these writers, journalists, ex-politicians, social commentators, artists and academics as they debrief the day’s headlines and shine a light on the stories getting everyone talking. Each discussion will be followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience.

Free and open to enquiring minds of all ages, After The Fact runs between 6-7pm each weekday at Barangaroo House, the perfect way to finish the workday before you continue the debate throughout your Vivid Sydney evening.

Any attendees under the age of 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
