To keep this event a safe space for everyone, there will be no hate speech or your mic will be turned off and you may be asked to leave the stage.

Mamma Chen’s is a wheelchair accessible venue however, the stage is not; we are happy to pass you the mic if needed.


Mamma Chen’s acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation, the true owners of the land that we live and operate on. We would like to pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
