It's all happening in South Australia this weekend with festivities in the regions, SALA exhibitions and plenty of live entertainment.

Bask in the Barossa

It’s all happening in the Barossa this August with A Little More Barossa food and wine festival providing a tempting excuse to escape the city and experience the best of the region on a plate or in a glass. With 50 events across the region including long lunches, winter dinners and masterclasses, there is the perfect weekend escape with something to suit every taste.

Get funky

Put your dancing shoes on for Friday Night Fever at the Pindarie Grain Room & Stables on Friday, August 19. Enjoy a glass of Sparkling La Femme on arrival before dancing the night away to your favourite old-school classics performed live by the Flaming Sambucas. A cocktail-style roaming dinner of pulled pork sliders, southern spiced chicken, falafel salad, noodle boxes and Thai curry will sate your appetite and plenty of Pindarie beverages will be available for purchase.

Sensational season

Seasonal Sessions will be returning to the Woodville Town Hall on August 19 and  20 with a program of Australian music, cabaret story and comedy. The program kicks off at 7.00pm on Friday with Lauren Henderson performing a journey through the Great American Songbook before Zooma Zooma takes the stage. Saturday night will see Michael Griffiths perform Sweet Dreams – Songs by Annie Lennox and comedy trio Tripod entertain with plenty of laughs. For this winter weekend, a lounge and bar will be open within the Woodville Town Hall, featuring live music and a place to enjoy a drink with friends between shows.

Paintings and pints

Opening on Thursday, August 18, the exhibition Meraki will be on show at the Arkaba Hotel for a dose of SALA alongside your favourite pub classics. Meraki, which means to do something with soul, creativity or love, will feature works by artists Adam White, Roland Lloyd White, Tracie Newton, Joanne Harvey, Linda Catchlove and Delphine Allert.

Brewing darkness

On Friday, August 19, dark beer lovers at the Kensington Hotel will be treated to a range of specially-picked dark ales and stouts from some of South Australia’s best and upcoming breweries at Dark Night. SixTwelve Brewing’s head brewer will give a talk about the brewing process of dark ales and stout, while the Kensington Hotel’s head chef cooks up chunky steak and stout pies to enjoy alongside the brews.

Inside a mind

On Thursday, August 18, dive into the mind of barrister and author Geoffrey Robertson QC as he speaks live at the Adelaide Festival Centre in It’s no longer hypothetical. In this live current affairs show, Geoffrey will analyse current politics and international turmoil, explain how fake news distorts democracy and what is happening to the royal family, and call for Australian constitutional regeneration. The show will give an insight into his life and famous cases, as well as his crusade to restore cultural property from museums around the world to the people from whom it was stolen.
