Welcome to Echonetdaily’s Free Friday. Each Friday we give away free tickets or other prizes to lucky subscribers.

Kate Miller-Heidke has spent the last year spreading her wings into new creative fields – like composing and starring in the Helpmann-Award winning opera The Rabbits, and filming her television acting debut in the musical mini-series The Divorce, which aired on the ABC in December – and now she is back on the road performing material of her own.

Kate will be performing at the Byron Theatre on February 11 and we have a double pass to give away to an Echonetdaily subscriber.

Subscription to Echonetdaily is still free, and means you’ll receive a daily dose of our local, independent journalism directly to your inbox (if you don’t already).
