Catapult Creative Productions

October 2012 - Australian National Maritime Museum

Catapult was engaged to design and produce the bi-annual Classic & Wooden Boats Festival by the Australian Maritime Museum

We brought a unique blend of entertainment and sophistication across the festival weekend. With something for every age and designed to attract a new range of visitors, the Festival saw approximately 6,000 patrons across the weekend.

The Call of the Sirens mesmerised the audiences across the Festival; Sirens are well-known throughout history; femme fatales luring sailors with their captivating song call. Performing a range of musical genres from 1950's/60's hits, jazz, soul and the latest pop/rock some of Australia's leading female songstresses took to the waterways including Evelyn Duprai, Natasha Stuart, Juanita Tippins, Danni Da Ros, Mali Ka-Hood and Carmen Smith. Saturday evening saw ARIA award winning Clare Bowditch enchant the crowds under a starry Sydney sky.

In addition to family favourite entertainment and some of the most amazing classic boats from around the world, this two day Festival is set to return bigger and better in 2014.
