We’re all got something unusual we get excited about – Paul Keating collected antique clocks, Tom Hanks gets giggly about 1940s typewriters and for me, its novelty fridge magnets and 80s toys. But we’re not alone.

The Wheeler Centre is hosting a night where some familiar Melbourne faces talk candidly about their obsessions and secret weird stuff. Writer Sam Pang hosts while Noni Hazlehurst and David Bridie chip in with the goss.

WHEN: Friday 30 March, 7pm – 8pm
WHERE: The Wheeler Centre, 176 Lt Lonsdale St, Melbourne
