What’s On: Bowerbird, The Queens Gala and movies in the moonlight

There is plenty to do in Adelaide this weekend with the return of Bowerbird and Moonlight Cinema, as well as WineLab at MOD. and the Barefaced Stories in our regional towns.

Bowerbird is back

Bowerbird, Adelaide’s Premier Design Market, will be returning to the Adelaide Showgrounds from Friday, November 26 to Sunday, November 28. The market will showcase the talent of Australia’s design community with a carefully-curated collection of artisan products including skincare, fashion, homewares, decorations and kids’ toys. Browse the stalls and enjoy some delicious food and beverages, or attend a maker-guided workshop and let your creativity shine through.

Dancing queens

Mary’s Poppin will be presenting The Queens Gala on Saturday, November 27, bringing together the dancing queens of Queer Adelaide, their friends and allies to raise money for Beyond Blue. Held in The Great Hall on North Terrace, the night of glitz and glamour will include a line-up of world-class drag superstars serving up entertainment galore with a side of delicious drinks and canapes. The party isn’t over when the gala ends, with an exclusive after-party kicking off at Mary’s Poppin.

Filming in the moonlight

The Moonlight Cinema is back from Friday, November 26 and bringing with it the nostalgia of picnics, popcorn and film-watching under the stars. This season, the Moonlight Cinema will be located in Rymill Park with on-site activations, food trucks, bars, plushie bean bags and of course, the big screen. Celebrate the festive season with screenings including Love Actually, The Holiday, Home Alone and The Grinch. Bring the family, friends and even your pooch to enjoy another summer of movies in the moonlight.

Shedding bare

Presented by Country Arts SA, Barefaced Stories is a modern type of storytelling elevating voices that might not easily find a microphone – real people, not just comedians or celebrities. The speakers are honest, raw, vulnerable and some of the bravest folk you’ll meet. The night will be a celebration of local stories on your local stages with Barefaced Stories occurring in Tintinara on Friday, November 26 and in Naracoorte on Saturday, November 27. You will experience stories that are a love song to the human condition and in one night, you will weep, laugh, and get to know your fellow human a little more closely.

A blend of wine, art and science

The University of South Australia’s futuristic Museum of Discovery, known as MOD., will be hosting 14 South Australian wineries on Friday, November 26 for WineLab, where wine, art and science will intersect to take you on a cross-sensory journey. Accompanying the delicious drops will be tasty morsels served up by MOD.’s Food Lore cafe. The event will be the last chance for the public to view MOD.’s current exhibition IT’S COMPLICATED, an exhibition that pulls back the curtain on what seems simple to reveal just how complicated and complex the world can be.

Surround sound

Ministry of Sound will be coming to Adelaide for the first time on Friday, November 26 with its symphonic dance music experience for all lovers of music. Prepare to celebrate the most beloved dance floor moments of the past 25 years – rearranged, remixed and reimagined with the Australian Symphony Orchestra and some of Australia’s most talented lead vocalists. The concert features Adelaide’s own Groove Terminator supported by a warm-up set from DJ John Course to set the mood for an exciting evening of live entertainment.
