What is the Residential Dinner theme?
All you need is love… and rock ’n’ roll! Experience the rock star treatment as you enjoy a three-course meal and premium beverage package at the Residential Dinner. Throw on some denim, a leather jacket, some sunglasses and a whole lot of attitude, and walk this way to the dancefloor where you will rock onto the sounds of the Rolling Stones, the Beetles, Bon Jovi, Queen and Aerosmith all night long. You can’t always get what you want… but you can be a rock star for a night!
What is the dress code?
We recommend business or smart casual attire for those attending the Debate, Welcome Drinks and Residential sessions. Conference rooms are often cooler than many people find comfortable so we recommend bringing a sweater or light jacket.
For the Residential Dinner, we encourage guests to embrace the rock ’n’ roll theme by adding in some leather, denim, a rock band t-shirt, sunglasses and the like – and we will be handing out bandannas at the door to help you join in on the fun.
Is QLS or FLPA membership required to attend the Residential?
No. However, there is reduced pricing for QLS, FLPA and Queensland Bar members.
