Cirque du Soleil, Cuttlefest and David Roche Foundation exhibition

This weekend, head to the Adelaide Showground for Cirque du Soleil's Luzia, or make a trip to Whyalla for Cuttlefest.

Roll up! Roll up!

Run away with Cirque du Soleil this weekend as it brings its worldwide, Mexican-themed hit, Luzia to the big top at the Adelaide Showground. Marvel at the amazing performers as jugglers juggle at breakneck speed, acrobats swing through the air and a contortionist moves his body in unbelievable ways. The Montreal-based contemporary circus is performing Luzia until July 7.

A trip down memory lane

Head to the David Roche Foundation House Museum in North Adelaide this weekend for a special exhibition featuring the toys of yesteryear. From knucklebones to pick-up sticks, they are all there in Australian Toys 1880-1965: The Luke Jones Collection exhibition, running until August 24. This ticketed exhibition will take you down memory lane with historic Australian toys from collector Luke Jones.
