1 - 9 March

Add to favourites

Gear up for a gnarly night at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House! The People’s House: Back to the ‘80s is a free, interactive event for all ages. For four nights only during Enlighten.

Dig out those leg warmers, shoulder pads and neon spandex. Join us for an immersive choose-your-own-adventure that takes you back to the 1980s working life in this building. Can you juggle the tools the telephonists used? Why does the Serjeant-at-Arms carry a fancy golden rod? How good are your aerobic dance moves?

Artist Nordacious (James Hillier) brings to life these everyday people putting democracy into action during the last hurrah for this house as a working Parliament.

Time travel has never been so rad.
