Exciting Entertainment – brilliant stage shows

               SADLY, OUR 2021 TOUR HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL NEXT YEAR       

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE DATES FOR 2022 – AND…….. MORE DATES TO COME

Our costumed entertainers, actors and musicians present a fully scripted stage show full of witty songs, side-splitting comedy, madcap games and audience involvement. This is “Reality Theatre” at its best – “Game of Thrones” with a twist…..or two!

Our shows change regularly and are centred around notable (even infamous!) historical characters – King Arthur (Camelot Castle and Knights of the Round Table as you’ve never seen before!), Robin Hood (He robbed from the rich and gave to the poor!!), King Henry V111 (He had six wives!), Dick Turpin (Indeed, a strong Dick – he held up stagecoaches with his pistol!), Lord Nelson (One eye, one arm and one burning ambition – to defeat Napoleon!), The Court Jester (See him juggle his balls!) and Queen Elizabeth 1 (they say she was a Virgin Queen!) PLUS many more – Our nights are full of Crazy Kings, Courtly Queens, Jolly Jesters, Dashing Knights, Lusty Wenches and Merry Minstrels!

INDEED, A SHOWCASE OF 50 YEARS OF AWARD WINNING ENTERTAINMENT

The Lords and Ladies, Masters and Mistresses (our cherished audience of fun-lovers) are seated at long banqueting tables, and are provided with a bib, bearing a false name, the identity of which is assumed throughout the evening. It’s all part of the fun here at Dirty Dick’s where you can re-live the grand old days of Merry England – escapism at its best!!

So, cast off your worries, forget your day to day woes for a while AND come and enjoy yourself with a wonderful night of mirth and merriment at Dirty Dick’s.

About Us

Dirty Dick’s has been established for over 50 years, originating in Wembley, Perth in 1970. Additional fixed locations soon appeared in Melbourne (Queens Rd, South Melbourne), Adelaide (Pirie Street), Brisbane (Petrie Terrace), New Zealand (Auckland) and Sydney (formerly Crows Nest for 21 years and then Auburn for 11 years).

A widespread national demand soon grew for our shows and Dirty Dick’s Touring Company was born! Seasons in Newcastle, Wollongong, Canberra, Darwin, Cairns and Townsville were followed up with seasonal roadshow tours to regional areas in all states and territory throughout the land.

To date, Dirty Dick’s shows have been hosted by more than 900 venues.

 

Why Dirty Dick’s?

The history of our name!

The original Dirty Dick’s cellars are in London in Bishopsgate and were established, by chance, in 1745 by Nathaniel Bentley.

Bentley’s father, through his life, amassed a considerable fortune as a Wine and Spirit merchant and left the whole of his property on his death to his son Nathaniel who was once something of a dandy, appearing in public in the most fashionable attire with his hair arranged by a court perruquier.

Nathaniel Bentley's Story - read more

Nathaniel’s dandy dress and habits made his subsequent decline all the more conspicuous. In a short space of time, from being the “around town” dandy, he became known to everyone in the Bishopsgate area as “Dirty Dick”. The cause of Nathaniel’s downfall was of a romantic character – a love affair! Above the cellars was a dining room decorated in Elizabethan manner, and to celebrate his forthcoming marriage, Bentley invited his intended bride, together with a number of friends, to an Elizabethan Banquet complete with entertainment.

Half an hour before the banquet, however, Bentley received news of the young lady’s sudden death which so upset him that he ordered the room to be closed up and resolved that it would never again be opened during his lifetime. The feast provided was left to be eaten by the rats, mice and spiders or go to decay. Thereafter, for the remaining 50 years of his life, Nathaniel Bentley changed from the elegant dandy to a character whose filthy habits became a legend. In 1809, after Bentley’s death, the building was found to be in a ruinous condition.

The cooking and other utensils were old, dirty and dilapidated and cobwebs, dirt and dust had accumulated in every corner. The old wine and spirit cellars are still in existence, but the venerable cobwebs with which the place was festooned were, of necessity, somewhat rudely displaced during the rebuilding of part of the premises in 1810 by order of the City of London authorities. Part of the original building still remains with many of the well known relics still preserved. We hope that the presentation of our Dirty Dick’s nights will continue to perpetuate the memory of Nathaniel Bentley. 

They said it!
