The Butterfly Club

Friday, 6 October 2023 - 5:30pm
5 Carson Place, Naarm / Melbourne
Wurundjeri Country

It's 2023 and the Earth is in a grim state. As the permafrost melts at an alarming rate, two literally-frozen-in-time Vikings emerge from the ice; and they're ready for war. Using only their Viking knowledge, some ancient Nordic myths and a sacrificial beer, Eric and Ingrid attempt to solve the world's Climate Change problems one axe swing at a time.

Vikings vs Climate Change follows our two rambunctious characters on a journey of song and silliness as they try to figure out exactly what a carbon footprint is anyway. Featuring physical comedy, hilarious antics and original songs and covers, Babble Productions brings a brand new comedy that is sure to tickle your funny bone and inspire you to raise your battle axe.

What time should I get there?

At least 30 minutes before the show. Our performances start bang on time and it takes a hot second to welcome you into the building.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Accordingly, patrons under 18 are only allowed on premises in the company of a parent or legal guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly encourage using public transport. The Butterfly Club is a short stroll from Flinders Street station and Melbourne Central, and an even shorter stroll from any tram that travels through Swanston or Collins Streets (get off at Town Hall).

How can I contact the venue with any questions?

Please call The Butterfly Club on 03 9663 8107 or reply to your email confirmation.

What's the refund policy?

If you can't attend for Covid-related reasons, you are entitled to a full refund provided you let us know ahead of time.

If the show is cancelled to comply with new restrictions or health directives, you will automatically get a full refund - no need to contact us.

Otherwise there are no refunds: exceptions are made in extraordinary circumstances at the Club's discretion. If there is a sensible reason why you should receive a refund, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. Our team have a record of all attendees updated in real time and will be able to let you in whether you bring a printed copy of your ticket or not.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes. It happens all the time. It's totally fine.
