Join Us For Lunch With Kitty

Wednesday, February 12 2020

“Lunch with Kitty” will see Kitty Flanagan share her favourite Rules for Life, cameos from her ‘488 Rules for Life’ (awarded Booktopia’s 2019 Favourite Australian Book!). We are cautiously excited that Lunch with Kitty will go ahead as planned on Friday, 28th May.

Thank you to the table captains for purchasing tickets in 2020 and for finalising their tables and attendees. We are so delighted and thankful to say that our Lunch is sold out!

Lunch WIth Kitty 2020 L4Life supporters

Kitty Flanagan is an Australian comedian, writer and actor who you may know from shows like Have You Been Paying Attention?, The Weekly, Utopia and more. What started as a joke on Kitty’s popular segment on ABC TV’s The Weekly, is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society (or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.)

Kitty is a wonderful supporter of L4Life. She co-hosted, with Tom Gleisner, a fun night filled with laughs at our 10th Anniversary 2018 Kwiz For The Kidz. Kitty’s new six-part comedy series, Fisk premiered on 17th March – you can watch it and catchup now on ABC + iView.

Raleigh Williams at L4Life's Lunch With Kitty 2020

We will also be entertained by the wonderful songstress, Raleigh Williams.

Raleigh showcases a magnificent voice that draws on a background of singing and composing in a diverse range of styles, including urban, country, jazz, pop and soul. With years of experience performing in both Australia and internationally, she has fast delivered herself a standing reputation as one of Melbourne’s best session singers.


Friday, 28th May at 12pm

Rosina Function Room and Courtyard, Abbotsford Convent

Currently in line with the Victorian Government’s COVID guidelines, capacity at the venue is optimal – this may change at any time. If restrictions are put in place, we may need to limit numbers. With this in mind we have staged ticket sales; some guests have purchased tickets in 2020 prior to original lockdown, there will be another limited release of tickets, and if possible a third stage may be released closer to the event. Notifications will be shared on our website, social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and eNews list (subscription via website.)

Please note: to accommodate for possible future COVID restrictions, those who purchased tickets in 2020 will be given priority, then in order of time of ticket purchase if guest numbers need to be reduced. We are hoping that this will not be necessary but we ask for your understanding should this occur. We will be in communication with all ticket holders in the event of any restrictions/changes to our plans.
