Join The Barmy Army in Sydney for the 2017 Ashes Series

With 30,000 fans travelling down under from the UK, The Ashes 2017-18 is sure to be an unforgettable event. The Barmy Army makes the experience for those touring Australia as easy as possible and promises to offer a phenomenal atmosphere throughout the Series.

Founded on the 1994/95 tour of Australia, the Barmy Army have been supporting the England cricket team at home and abroad for over 20 years. As one of the greatest supporters in cricket, the Barmy Army continue to help bring cricket to the masses by providing tickets and organising tours to support the team wherever they are playing.

This year we are proud to sponsor the Barmy Army on their tour down under. Our venues are the headquarters for the Barmy Army while they are in Sydney with lots of daily specials on offer. The HQs are known to be party central so come along, introduce yourself, get involved and have some fun!


Cargo bar party venue

Spread over two stories and with a great view overlooking Darling Harbour, Cargo is your post-match destination for a casual drink or two after the game. Soak up the sunshine in the Beer Garden with a beer or pay homage to the UK with a pitcher of Pimms. Whatever your choice of beverage we have plenty of options so you can find the perfect summer refresher during what is sure to be another hot Aussie summer.

As the HQ for the Barmy Army during the Sydney leg of the tour the atmosphere is sure to be nothing short of amazing. Stay around a bit later and the fun starts again. As a notorious party destination, if you’re after a good time Cargo is the place to be with live entertainment playing late into the night.
