Goulburn is putting on a spy festival

Share Canberra's trusted news:


GOULBURN is putting on what they claim is the world’s only spy genre themed festival.

The city is set to host the inaugural SPYfest this September. The epicentre of espionage will be the Special Agents Gala Dinner happening on the evening of Saturday 26.

Goulburn’s Veolia Arena will be the location of the Gala dinner – the first event of its kind to be held at the venue – hosting world-class entertainment, special guests and sponsors of SPYfest.

SPYfest celebrations of all things spy will continue across the weekend. The festival of events will feature spy demonstrations, a parade, an author forum and city-wide game of ‘iSPY’.

The inaugural festival was inspired by George Lazenby, the only Australian thus far to play James Bond on screen, born and raised in Goulburn. George will be returning to his hometown for the entire weekend and will be making an appearance at several of the SPYfest celebrations, including the Gala Dinner, hosting an autograph signing and press-conference.

More information is on the SPYFest website.
