DINER en Rouge, the annual fundraising event to support domestic and family violence victims in the Redlands, will go ahead this year as a live stage show called Musique en Rouge.

Tickets will go on sale from Tuesday, September 22.

Mayor Karen Williams said a sell-out crowd was expected at the event on November 7, with internationally acclaimed soprano and Redlands Coast local Mirusia headlining a list of talented performers.

"This event is now in its sixth year and continues to raise much-needed funds to support Redlands Coast residents affected by domestic and family violence," she said.

"This year has brought many challenges for our community, and the economic and social impacts associated with COVID-19 have magnified the tragedy of domestic abuse.

"Now more than ever, we need to work together to ensure a safer tomorrow for all Redlands Coast families."

Musique en Rouge will be held at the Redland Performing Arts Centre Concert Hall, with Mirusia to be joined by leading Australian cabaret and theatre performers Luke Kennedy and Naomi Price.

The evening will also feature guest speakers and raffle prizes.

"Funds raised through sponsorship and ticket sales will help to ensure local community organisations can deliver assistance to families when and where it is most needed," Cr Williams said.

"We all deserve to feel safe and supported, and we can all do something to help."

"With community support, we can continue to build a strong and safe Redlands Coast community where domestic and family violence does not go unchallenged."

Cr Williams urged the community to support the event and enjoy a night of entertainment while helping others in need.

Tickets are $65 each or $600 for a group of 10.
