We’re back from the long weekend for another week of Laurel, Gary and Mark’s A-Z of Brisbane Icons!

Today we tackled ‘F’ and we thought of Festival Hall, Fortitude Valley, Finney’s David Jones and Fine Cotton the race horse…

Festival Hall:

One special feature of our studio?

We have some of the ORIGINAL Festival Hall Seats in our area that we may or may not have stole way back when… 


We spoke exclusively to John Wren about Festival Hall this morning and the time The Beatles performed at our iconic arena. 

Who was there? 

Re-live the experience below.
