ASTRA Awards

Event Type:entertainment & premieres
Venue:Hordern Pavilion
More than 800 members of the subscription televison community braved torrential rain to attend the ASTRA Awards at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion.
A host of stars stalked the red carpet including Asher Keddie, Sophie Falkner, Khan Chittenden, Bill Granger, Yumi Stynes, Antonia Kidman, Kat Stewart, Kris McQuade and MC Bob Downe, plus sporting greats Ian Thorpe, Allan Border, Liz Ellis and Anthony Mundine.
Guests dined on gourmet selections from Belinda Franks Catering while enjoying a jam-packed roster of entertainment 'in the round' - we utilised three stages to create a feeling of dynamic movement and energy.
Home-grown music acts Evermore, Sneaky Sound System and Juke Kartel rocked the guests with live performances throughout the night.
Once the formalities were over, guests were beckoned by live drummers to dive into the afterparty at one of the stages, where flame-throwing displays and flowing cocktails kept guests entralled and buzzing late into the night.
