Golden Gavel


Friday 20 May 2022 · The Fullerton Hotel Sydney


Golden Gavel, the only breakfast event worth dragging your sleep-deprived soul out of bed for, is returning on Friday 20 May.

Six brave souls have taken on the challenge of entertaining a room full of lawyers at 7.30 in the morning. Can they land at least 80% of their jokes? Will they outshine our host, comedian and law graduate, Floyd Alexander-Hunt? We'd pay to see that.

Grab a ticket and join your colleagues for a cracking show with a side of eggs and crispy bacon.
