Sea some art
The 43rd Victor Harbor Art Show will be held on the Warland Reserve in Victor Harbor from Saturday, January 15, to Saturday, January 22. The event promotes local and interstate artists by allowing them to display and sell their work in the largest outdoor art exhibition in Australia. More than 1400 pieces are displayed annually during the nine-day event, with around 10,000 people visiting Victor Harbor to view the show. Take a stroll by the seaside and enjoy the talent Australian artists have to offer, maybe even taking your favourite piece home.
Butterfly Theatre will be presenting Shakespeare’s classic play Much Ado About Nothing in a variety of outdoor settings this summer starting Saturday, January 15, at the Stockade Botanical Park in Northfield. The production is set in the Shakespearean period of the 1590s with period costuming alongside the universal and timeless themes of romantic love’s trials and tribulations. A unique way to engage with classical theatre, Shakespeare Under the Stars is a beautiful way to spend a summer’s evening.
