What’s On This Weekend

I am pretty excited about this weekend because several great (I could say “my favourite”) events happening on it.

First of all, one of the biggest second hand book sell “Bookfest” is on from this Saturday! If you need good English books for the price less than a cup of coffee head to Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (Southbank). You can find second hand puzzles and boards game there as well. For more information click here.

Only imagine – yoga in the gallery (how cool is that?), Bollywood dancing, storytelling (great for English!)! For more information visit GOMA website.
