Rock Star Wrangler Warhurst To Be the MC at the Sir Bob Geldof Dinner

15 Feb 2019

Adding to the star power of the evening is the energetic and engaging Myf Warhurst. We look forward to welcoming Myf to Ballarat to MC this special dinner featuring Sir Bob Geldof as the guest speaker.

No stranger to music icons, Myf is probably best known for her seven-year stint wrangling rock stars and other showbiz luminaries as a team captain on ABC TV's music/comedy quiz show Spicks and Specks.

Between 2014 and 2017, Myf presented Lunch With Myf weekdays on ABC’s digital radio station Double J. The opportunity to play new releases, talk to musicians and have free reign to delve into the archives made Double J the perfect home for this massive music fan!

In 2018, Myf moved into a new position at ABC Radio, where she can be heard across the country from 12.30 pm to 2 pm weekdays. She also continues to present Bang On with co-host Zan Rowe  – a podcast where they chat about the biggest issues in art, music and pop culture and is available for download via the ABC Radio app or iTunes.

Since 2017, Myf has hosted the Eurovision Song Contest alongside comedian Joel Creasey. In February, the pair hosted Eurovision: Australia Decides (which determined Australia's entrant for the contest) and will host the annual song contest from Tel Aviv, Israel, in May for the Australian audience.

With the ultimate music and rock star wrangler as our host, what a night it is set to be!

Landmark Ballarat Location Fit for an Icon

What better place to hear from an icon of global change than from within Ballarat’s iconic Civic Hall!

We are proud to reveal the dinner will be one of the first events to be held in the newly refurbished Civic Hall.

With over 350 members and guests, the night promises to be truly memorable.
