We urgently need your help to sell tickets to Can’t Stop the Serenity Melbourne 2015. We’ve still got 150 tickets to sell for our August 22 event!

Australia has been spoiled with Firefly cast over the past few months, and as much as we’ve loved having the chance to meet Nathan, Adam and Jewel, it’s meant that our CSTS ticket sales have been slower than usual. So we need your help to get the word out, and help us sell out! We’ve done it in the past, so let’s not let our 10th year be any less spectacular.

To encourage sales, we’ll be adding a host of door prizes to the event as we hit ticket goals, including a Nathan Fillion autograph! Tickets are only $25, which gets you a whole day’s worth of entertainment and prizes!

We’ve done the impossible and that makes us mighty. Let’s do it again for Can’t Stop the Serenity Melbourne 2015!


CSTS Ticket Goal Prizes v2

As you know, the venue for the ball is listed as The Pavilion in the Fitzroy Gardens. Unfortunately, as ticket sales did not reach the venues minimum of 100, we were forced to make a tough decision – run at a significant loss, cancel the Ball or find a more suitable venue. We didn’t like either of the first two options (and we figured you wouldn’t either), so after much deliberation and research, we are happy to share that we have found a new location that comfortably seats 60 guests.

The new venue for the Sereniversary Ball is “The Salon” at the Provincial Hotel on Brunswick St, Fitzroy. Just 17mins from the CBD via tram, it’s very easy to get too, and there’s ample parking nearby. The downstairs hotel has a fabulous old world charm, but once you go upstairs (staircase access only) to “The Salon” it’s glamour all the way.


Where: The Salon, The Provincial Hotel, cnr Brunswick & Johnson Sts, Fitzroy
When: Saturday 22 August from 6:30pm-11:30pm (afterparty downstairs in the main bar)
How to get there: 17 min trip from Melbourne Central Station (Train to Parliament Station, then Route 11 tram to Stop 16-Johnston St/Brunswick St). Parking available at the nearby Coles.
Access: Ballroom is accessible by stairs only (no lift or wheelchair access). Bathrooms are located on the same level as the Ballroom.
Cloak Room: Storage of personal items will be available for no charge.
Website: provincialhotel.com.au

12583-20061026-function27 On arrival you can enjoy a range of delicious canapés and drinks, then partake in a sumptuous 3 course meal of delicious alternating entrées, mains and desserts. Your meal is accompanied by a lovely selection of drinks, including wine, beer, cider, soft drinks and orange juice. We will also have some special Browncoat themed cocktails available for purchase, as well as a cash bar if you’d like something different. Throughout the meal, you’ll enjoy some wonderful entertainment, including a grand auction and raffle. Images with Carol will be on hand to capture the memory in our photo studio, and there is lots of room for dancing.

Refund Option:
We understand that some ticket holders may not be able to accommodate the change in venue, so if you would like a refund of your Ball ticket, please email events@newmelbournebrowncoats.com by 31 July. Package ticket holders who choose a refund will still receive their swag bags (via post for no additional charge) and a refund of $95.00 (Ball ticket price).
