Rock ‘N’ Roll Festival, Woolcock Reynella Parade and high tea at SkyCity
High tea on top of the town
Sol Rooftop is elevating high tea to a new level of sophistication with the new High Tea Sundays created by the restaurant’s head chef Raj Kumar. Served Sundays from 11am to 3pm, the experience begins with a glass of Penfolds x Thiénot Rosé Champagne complemented by an assortment of organic tea. Then, while you take in the views across Adelaide, a beautifully curated three-tier stand of savoury delights is presented to the table. The high tea is topped off with an unlimited selection of sumptuous pastries and cakes from the decadent Marble Patisserie Bar.

Woolcock Reynella is showing their spring-summer collection in store on September 16 and 18. Go along to enjoy morning tea while enjoying the fashion parade that showcases some of the latest garments from Paris, Germany, Italy, London and America on the catwalk.

For those about to rock
For those who love classic cars, rock ’n’ roll and vintage memorabilia, Victor Harbor is the place to be this weekend as the Rock ’N’ Roll Festival returns to the south coast. Pop on your blue suede shoes or retro skirt and head to Warland Reserve for a display of classic and vintage vehicles, market stalls, food vans and live entertainment for all ages. Now in its 14th year, the festival will once again be a vibrant celebration of rock ‘n’ roll music and dance, with local venues hosting live entertainment over the weekend.

Mixologists from Next Door Cocktail Bar and Prohibition Liquor Co. will guide you through two gin cocktail recipes that you can then enjoy alongside a gourmet antipasto platter. Be sure to keep the recipe cards so you can whip up delicious drinks and impress your friends at home.
Light and colour
As part of his Guildhouse Fellowship, artist Liam Fleming is presenting his latest sculptural glasswork alongside pieces from the Art Gallery of South Australia’s permanent collection that inspire him. Liam says he is interested in discovering new ways of manipulating glass as an artistic material. “The simple glassblowing technique of mould-blowing gives me a unit to construct and compose, which is then subject to the unpredictability of the kiln,” he says. “Through this process, I relinquish control of form and hope to uncover something redeeming in the final static object – the idea is simply to present glass in its honesty.” The exhibition’s works explore colour in motion and mood, using suspended colours held by glass and enhanced with light. Liam Fleming: Light and colour is on display in Gallery 17 until December 3.
