Causing Mayhem at the Justice & Police Museum


Get set for a night of dangerous glamour and wicked indulgence at the Justice & Police Museum. 

We're partnering with The Festivalists to bring a night of Mayhem to Sydney.

As evening falls on the City of Shadows, we’re inviting you to take on a new identity, unleash your dark side and journey back to the underworld of the 1920s.

Lose yourself in the Hot Club groove of Spyglass Gypsies or try to resist the charms of infamous showgirl Bunni Lambada

Take your style cues from the Justice & Police Museum’s compelling collection of police forensic photography then see how it feels to get your mug shot taken in the charge room and spend time in lock-up with a detective hell bent on your confession. Shoot your own silent film, try to beat the card sharks, design a tattoo and put yourself (and your crimes) on the front page of the paper.

Then slink into the sly-grog den for bourbon by Bulleit and supper catered by food truck, Urban Pasta. 

Mayhem is a one night only event at the Justice & Police Museum. 
A licensed event for ages 18 + only. 
Tickets $75

Special offer includes a $40 voucher from Uber for new users on the night.
