All 2018 Australia Kizomba Festival workshops and parties (except Thursday pre-event and Sunday night party) will be held at St Brigid’s Hall (378 Nicholson Street, Fitzroy North), a magnificent large art-deco style venue used for many Melbourne dance and arts events, located in the vibrant inner-city precinct of Fitzroy, just 2km from the CBD.

The venue is walking distance from Fitzroy’s renowned bohemian vibe and eclectic mix of cool cafes, bars, restaurants and boutique shops, and a short tram ride to Melbourne’s famous CBD laneways and nearby attractions such as Federation Square, Southbank, St Kilda, etc.
