Sydney Opera House Presents the Big Summer Sleepover

  Summer just got a little more exciting with the Big Summer Sleepover – a special invitation from Sydney Opera House for families from NSW and around the country to sleep beneath the world famous sails on Thursday January 19 and Friday January 20, 2012.

From 9am, this Saturday November 19, Sydney Opera House’s Big Summer Sleepover will open for entries as part of the Summer at the House program. Over two special nights, 80 lucky winners will slumber in the stunning surrounds of the Concert Hall Northern Foyer - a unique location inside the House boasting unrivalled harbour views.

Winners will be taken on an experience that they will never forget, including an exclusive VIP tour inside Sydney Opera House, private dinner, special meet and greets, as well as tickets to the must-see show for summer, The Illusionists.

Sydney Opera House Chief Executive Richard Evans said the Big Summer Sleepover was all about families making Sydney Opera House their home for Summer and beyond.

“Sydney Opera House belongs to the people of NSW and Australia. What better way for families to experience a building that has been home to some of the best known names in the world, than to invite them to literally make the House their home for one night only.”

“We’re thrilled to offer this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and look forward to receiving entries.”
