Here’s to the freaking weekend! Canberrans we’ve made it through another week and now it’s time to treat yo’ slef and enjoy the weekend ahead. We’ve got you covered with our top 10 fave things to see and do:

9pm Saturday 1 April

Kingswood continues on their national tour at ANU Bar this weekend, showcasing their second studio album After Hours, Close To Dawn. With the closure of ANU Bar creeping up, you would hate to pass on this opportunity to rock out.


A Taste of the Philippines at Trader & Co.

6:30pm Saturday 1 April

Make your weekend pop, by attending the pop-up restaurant at Trader & Co. Yass local chef Joseph will be serving up a banquet of delectable Filipino cuisine throughout the night for you to indulge and immerse yourself in this unique culture.


Raiders V Eels at GIO Stadium

5:30pm Saturday 1 April

On Saturday you can get out amongst the crowd and cheer on the green machine in a late afternoon showdown against the Parramatta Eels. Having come off with only one win out of four games in the season, the Raiders are geared up for a performance at the game this weekend.


Canberra District Wine Week at various locations 

All weekend

It’s wine time in Canberra! Some of our favourite events to get out to this weekend include the Launch Party at NewActon from 2pm-5pm on Saturday, Blend Your Own Red at Dog Trap Vineyard and Vintage Flights at Contentious Character in Wamboin. With over 10 events per day at your fingertips this weekend, there is an abundance of choice for you and your wine-loving friends.


Ladies in Black at Canberra Theatre Centre 

Last weekend

It’s the last time to catch Ladies In Black at the Canberra Theatre before it ends. The colourful show is set in 1959 as the city of Sydney and the characters within the show move away from the repression of the 1950s to embrace the liberation of the 1960s. This toe-tapping hit is a must-see before its exit from the Canberra stage.
