A Monsignor and a Yogi walk into the Windsor Hotel...

From the Seventh-Day Adventist camps at the Zoo to the Battle of Forrest Street (Catholics 1 - Methodists 1, after extra time), South Perth's religious background is a complicated tale.

Join the City's Local History Librarian for an evening of mild sectarianism, politics from the pulpit and predictions of the Apocalypse from a naked Frenchman on Mill Point Road.

This will be a contemplative look at the religious and spiritual life of the City of South Perth.
