Bunter Abend Variety Night 2019

Saturday 25 May

Templer Community Hall
152 Tucker Road, Bentleigh
7.00pm to Late

Come along for a fantastic evening of fun, entertainment, music and games and enjoy a modern twist on the traditional German Bunter Abend.

What is Bunter Abend? Bunter Abend is a variety night of all kinds of performances - poetry, song, dance, choirs, theatrical one-actors, skits and even charades, lectures, opera and even magic!

Here is a little taste of the performances we have in store for you:

  • Prepare to be dazzled by Jaqui Katz’s jazzy talents on the trombone
  • Bop along to Monika and Mark Herrmann’s rendition of a classic 1960s duet
  • Enjoy the energy and dulcet tones of the Temple Society Choir as they perform a selection of Autumn-themed songs

And much more!

Bring your friends and family, young and old. All ages are welcome to join in, watch the acts as well as participate in games.


Book a seat or a table with your friends.

BYO drinks and nibbles.

Enjoy the dessert bar: $5 per person


A Saturday evening with friends well spent!

Event proceeds will support the Temple Society Music Scholarship
