For some comedy, check out the Flying Duck Hotel at 67 Bendigo Street Prahran in July. This pub offers Free Comedy on Wednesdays at 7.30pm in a relaxing and refined venue.
The final suggestion for a free event in Melbourne in July 2018 is the Historical Lantern Tour of Royal Park. Meet at 34 Poplar Road in Parkville on Fridays at 7pm. The host will don a frock coat, vest, and top hat as you tour the grounds and heritage listed buildings. Another host will narrate what it was like to be a child in the girl's division of the Industrial School, at Royal Park - prepare to be thrilled.
