Guru Dudu’s Silent Disco Walking Tours launches in Sydney on Friday 12th July as part of the Bondi Feast celebrations running through until 21st July. The sensation that took Edinburgh Festival by storm last year entertained over 11,000 people over 25 days with 188 sold out shows!
It’s the highlight of the Scenic Rim’s Eat Local Week season. The Winter Harvest festival is the finale of a powerful week of collaboration and celebration of Australian local farming produce and Brisbane’s world heritage listed backyard!
More than 70 market stalls selling everything from local vegetables to eggs, cheese, olives, relishes, jams, honey, camel milk products, carrot ice-cream, beer and wine will feature at the Aratula Community Sports Complex along with celebrity chef cooking demonstrations, food-themed Fashions on the Field, live music, loads of kids rides and adventures (Hay Maze, Kalfresh Carrot Central, face painting and free kids corner activities) and of course, the world famous Kalbar and District Bendigo Community Bank Tractor Pulling competition!!
David Tsirekas joined Nostimo Restaurant Bar as Chef in Residence upon its opening in June 2018. Sydney’s acclaimed 1821 is also under David’s culinary baton, meaning he splits his time between both states while serving high quality, innovative dishes that always deliver on flavour, yet remain authentic and true to Greek flavours. Brisbane also shares Tsirekas’ flavours with Chicago, after he was approached to oversee the launch of two modern Greek restaurants in the US city after mega restaurateur Louie Alexakis heard about his talents. Chef Tsirekas is famed for changing the approach to Greek cuisine here in Australia with his cooking style being described as ‘daring, self-assured and full of expression’, a chef who makes ‘harmonious and refined dishes, not just ones with intensity and macho charm’.
In a culinary powerhouse of innovation that will send shockwaves through the Brisbane dining scene, Greek Superchef, Dimitris Katrivesis will be joining David Tsirekas for an exciting week of flavour in May, including Brisbane’s first ever Greek Yum Cha experience. “A dish, a great dish, is the most complex work of art, as it should appeal to all five senses and, once devoured, it must remain in memory like a painting, a melody, or a beautiful view,” says Chef Katrivesis.
Queensland Symphony Orchestra has a sensational season of sound in store for autumn, from hip-hop to Handel and trombone to T-Rex, guaranteed to keep you warm as the temperature (finally) heads south!
After the wonders of Dreamscapes featured the works of Australian pianist and composer, Elena Kats-Chernin as well as Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique (allegedly written under the influence of opium, whilst Berlioz recovered from the heartache of being spurned by an actress who didn’t return his love letters!) on the weekend, next up is Jurassic Park!
‘Theme from Jurassic Park’ is widely regarded as one of John Williams’ greatest works and his score to the film, written in 1993 (nearly 30 years ago!), often makes ‘Top Ten’ lists of the greatest movie scores of all time! On Saturday 27 April, Queensland Symphony Orchestra will perform the entire Jurassic Park soundtrack live with the film projected in HD at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre. It’s an epic concert for the whole family, 65 million years in the making!
After dazzling audiences across the seas, the glamorous Parisian revue show CABARET DE PARIS will return with its BIGGEST cast ever to make Brisbane sizzle during winter for three shows only on Friday 5th & Saturday 6th July.
