Episode 77. Anne-Louise Rentell.


Anne-Louise runs the Vault Cabaret, which is held at the Vault on Wentworth Street here in mighty-mighty Port Kembla, and has done the last 13 years. I reached out to Anne-Louise a little while ago because I came across an article about how she was starting up walking tours in Port Kembla. This area has a rich history throughout it’s boom times as well as it’s not so boom times, up until now where it seems there is a resurgence which has been happening for a few years now. In the walking tours, titled “Where Lies Beauty“, this history is explored through examining the area, the architecture and the community through their stories. The first tour was held in April to a very favourable reception. The next is scheduled for the 18th of this month of June, and then again on Saturday the 23rd of July. To keep up with the happenings follow Where Lies Beauty on Twitter and Facebook and drop them a line to get more information. Also, keep an eye out for the Vault Cabaret by checking in with the Merrigong Theatre Co. A gigantic thank-you to Anne-Louise for taking time out of her day to have a chat, on that day in particular, as it was the afternoon of the most recent Vault Cabaret. Recorded at the Commercial Hotel. Our unofficial home away from home.
