What’s On: Frenchfest, Silver Style and garden inspiration

The sun's out, so take the excuse to embed yourself in chic French culture and find inspiration for your indoor plants.

Très Francais

The inaugural Auburn Frenchfest 2021 will be staged at various historical venues around Auburn, in the world-renowned wine region of the Clare Valley. The festival, from September 10 to 12, will include theatre, art, exhibition, French-inspired food and wine, markets, workshops and more. The event is family friendly and offers a spectrum of theatrical and musical performances by Louise Blackwell and her band. You will find something to suit everyone with the many different events on the program.

Silver Style

The Letitia Linke Research Foundation’s Adelaide Silver Style Gala Ball to raise funds for ovarian cancer research will take place on Saturday, October 9 at Adelaide Town Hall. Rebecca Morse will be the MC for the night, with special guest the Honourable Julie Bishop and entertainment by Amity Dry and the Hepburn Band. The night will begin with drinks on the balcony, followed by fine dining, dancing and entertainment in this most glamorous of venues. All of this plus, most importantly, an opportunity to raise funds to help fund research for an early detection test and better treatment of ovarian cancer.

High-stakes race

A high-octane black comedy about power, betrayal and success, David Mamet’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Glengarry Glen Ross follows four desperate Chicago real estate agents in a high-stakes sales competition that will see the winner get a new Cadillac while the losers face the sack. SA’s Flying Penguin Productions originally intended to stage the play last September to celebrate its 15th birthday, but was forced to reschedule due to the pandemic shutdown. The production – directed by David Mealor ­– will now play at the Bakehouse Theatre from September 10 to 25.

Orchid lovers rejoice

If you love orchids, then this is the course for you. Learn everything you could even wish to know at the Demystifying Orchids workshop at the Noel Lothian Hall, on Sunday, September 12. During the three-hour workshop, participants will develop a range of techniques they can apply to their own orchid collection at home. The event cost is $95 per person, with information covering the scientific principles of plant growth and propagation methods, how to best look after your orchids, and demonstrations of growing materials.
