An Evening with Andrew Cotter, Olive and Mabel
Sun 5 Sept, 7.30pm

Andrew Cotter began 2020 as one of the most recognisable voices in sports broadcasting. But now, he is a ‘bone’-a fide internet sensation, only slightly eclipsed by his canine companions and overnight global superstars Olive and Mabel.

Andrew’s hilarious commentary in a series of online contests between his two adorable Labradors brought people across the internet together during the toughest days of lockdown. Uplifting and heart-warming, the series, including Game of Bones, went viral and has since been viewed more than 50 million times on social media.

Join Andrew, Olive and Mabel for this very special live event, as Andrew gives a commentary of a different kind: the heart-warming story of his life with his two famous Labradors, of his bond with his dogs, and their many adventures together. Both touching and laugh-out-loud funny, this is a treat for the whole family.
