Yet another weekend of minus temperatures is upon us, but that doesn’t mean that we should go into hibernation! If you’re around town this weekend, be sure to check out our top 10 events going on in Canberra.
7:50pm kick-off Friday 14 July
NRL Round 19 kicks off tonight at GIO Stadium with Canberra’s very own Green Machine taking on the Dragons. Temperatures are looking low for the night, so make sure that you bring your thickest coat and cheer on the Raiders to keep toasty warm all game long!
6pm Friday 14 July
If you’re planning on stopping by the Canberra Centre’s new Beauty Precinct tonight, then why not do it in style by attending the Sip & Scent Masterclass. Sip on a signature cocktail while sampling new scents when Canberra’s ‘martini whisperer’, Phillip Jones, joins forces with fragrance expert Dimitri Weber to pair together custom fragrances with a bespoke martini… Delicious!
8pm Saturday 15 July
Sound and Fury combines music, theatre, dance, spoken word and song all in one neat package. This Saturday night experience extraordinary performance art at one of Canberra’s most unique and spectacular parties.
Marianne and Roland are an unusual couple with one being a quantum physicist and the other a humble beekeeper – a big universe thinker meets an everyday believer. String theory, parallel universes and Sliding Doors moments set the scene for this quirky, yet charming romance of endless invention. With various show times on offer, this performance is one not to be missed!
11am Saturday 15 July
Head along to the Bastille Day Petit Feast tomorrow at Buvette! Guests will be greeted with the signature Lillet Mode De Vide on arrival before enjoying savouries, charcuterie, cheeses and a selection of delicious desserts. While being entertained by a French accordion player, guests can treat themselves to a drink from the Piper-Heidsieck pop-up bar or purchase a bloody mary or bottomless glass of mimosas.
