Good morning everyone!
The weekend is almost upon us! Having the Australia Day holiday on Tuesday has just made this week fly by, hasn’t it?! We are also in for some pretty big afternoon summer storms over the next couple of days leading up to the weekend, so remember to plan ahead and take care. You can track those nasty storms via the BOM website. A few suggestions below on what’s happening this weekend in Brisbane – keep reading to find out more. 🙂
Possibly one of the greatest musicals of all time – Cats is back again for a strictly limited time – and this time starring the beautiful and talented Aussie singing sensation Delta Goodrem as Grizabella. The grand opening starts at QPAC this Friday the 29th of January, and tickets are selling out FAST! You can buy your tickets online here. Meow!
Here’s something for the bike lovers! This Saturday night, join hundreds of other Brisbane locals to take part in the Ride the Night cycling event. Ride the Night was established to try and help minimize the number of disadvantaged youths in Australia. You must purchase your ticket prior to participating, and all proceeds will be donated to the Brisbane Youth Service. Be quick – there are only 2 days left! Check out the official website here to secure your spot.
Keeping with the theme of cats comes this cute event. If you’re living on the south side of Brisbane, you might want to check out this out on Saturday! Starting at 10am over in Acacia Ridge is the Sizzling Summer Cats Show. This adorable show costs just $5 to get in, and is jam packed with all things cats. Meet locals who specialise in breeding unique cats such as the Burmese, Bengal, Maine Coone and Ragdoll, and find out which furry feline would make your perfect companion! There will also be a cat competition which you guys will be able to help judge! The event will run all day until 4pm. Click here for more information.
Starting this week and running until February 21st over at the Brisbane Sciencentre is the Sound Show. The Sound Show explores a number of scientific concepts, such as vibrations, sound waves, amplification & loudness and frequency & pitch. If you’re one of those people who loves learning about how things work, then this is the perfect exhibit for you! Entry is the standard Sciencentre fee, and you can pay at the door. Be sure to take your student card for a discount! Check out the Sciencentre website for more information about this and other exhibits happening at our awesome museums!
That’s it for now! Remember to plan ahead with those incoming storms, and if you can, try to stay indoors when the worst of it has arrived! Have a fantastic weekend! 😀
