Ormond Collective Discovery Day

Once upon a time on a crisp Melbourne evening, many talented Magic Makers gathered together to host a most exciting event; the Ormond Collective opening night.  Friends of The Big Group journeyed from near and far to delight in the excitement happening within the historic bluestone buildings on Melbourne’s St Kilda Rd. Live music and decadent cocktails filled the Western bar, a merry-go-round kept the guests in circles in the courtyard, indulgent desserts flowed from The Eastern Bar; it was a most spectacular evening, so the story goes. The main act saw showstopper entertainment in Ormond Hall, a much-loved highlight being bath boy- yes a real boy, in a real bathtub – intriguing, no? The endless entertainment and indulgent catering offered endless possibilities in the many spaces that make up Ormond Collective. Such was the journey of opening night, where many stories were made and will be told time and again.
