The biennial Percival Portrait Painting Prize is North Queensland’s own portrait competition and is held at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery.

Having begun in 2007, The Percivals is an open competition for artists. While showcasing the outstanding and innovative work currently being produced by Australian artists, the competition has also given many emerging artists an opportunity to engage with portraiture and share their expressions of themselves and those close to them. Across the years participating artists have presented varied styles and approaches to the contemporary portrait - from abstracted images and cool conceptualism to smooth realism and the energetic aura of thick, impasto oils executed with broad brush and palette knife.

More information can be found on the Percival Portrait Painting Prize 2016 page.

When the audience become diners in the 'Faulty Towers' restaurant and are served by Basil, Sybil and Manuel, pretty much anything can happen - especially with only a third of the show scripted. The fun starts as guests wait to be seated, then hurtles along in a tour de force of gags and belly-laughs.

This internationally acclaimed tribute to the BBC's best-loved sitcom was born in Brisbane in 1997. The show comes to the Riverway Arts Centre in a year packed with appearances in 20 countries as well as an on-going London West End residency that holds Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence. Nine teams of cast now tour the world.

Please note: 3 Course Dinner included in the ticket price; Bar open during Cabaret.
Seating at tables of 8. Please let the TicketShop know if you have any special dietary requirements.
