Despite restrictions … THE SHOW MUST GO ON!  

The curtain is set to go up on one of Melbourne’s most-loved charity events, albeit a little differently.

Sacred Heart Mission’s 13th annual Heart of St Kilda Concert, its annual fundraiser for the Meals Program, will take place as a live stream concert on Wednesday, 2 December from its spiritual home, the Palais Theatre. SHM will present the concert in a new format, resulting in an exciting and totally unique line up. International, interstate and local artists will perform exclusively for us this year and audiences can tune in globally, supporting those in Melbourne experiencing homelessness, social isolation and disadvantage.  

Hosted by Brian Nankervis live from the Palais and streamed into the comfort of your home, the Heart of St Kilda Concert offers a stunning line-up of Australian and international musicians and comedians. 

COVID-19 has pushed people further into entrenched poverty, unable to afford daily meals or pay their bills, trapping them in a punishing cycle of debt. SHM is a lifeline to people experiencing homelessness or disadvantage, and despite COVID-19 SHM has continued to offer our Dining Hall clients a combined breakfast and lunch takeaway to ensure people are provided nutritious meals and support they urgently need every day.  

By purchasing a Heart of St Kilda Concert ticket and watching online, you are contributing to help end homelessness in our community.  

The stunning line-up of Australian and international musicians and comedians, include:  

The Living End  

Missy Higgins  

Billy Bragg  


Rick Springfield  

Jane Barnes Band FT Jimmy Barnes & Diesel  

Marlon Williams  

Kev Carmody
