THE FOOD TRUCK HUB ON CHESTER | FRI, JUN 9

SYDNEY CHORUSOZ | SUN, JUN 11
Get ready to sing your heart out! Join up to 1000 singers at the Sydney Opera House for choral work not to be missed. No particular skill level is needed to join in, so if you don’t usually sing outside the shower, don’t worry, get up there. The choir will sing Mendelssohn’s magnificent oratorio Elijah (in English).
TEA TASTING WORKSHOP | SUN, JUN 11
Tea-drinking is an activity that never fails to satisfy. Join other tea connoisseurs for a two-hour tea tasting at Mindful Origins, Redcliffe. Purchase a $35 ticket to sip from a wide range of teas and learn how to make the perfect cup. Oh, did we mention every attendee will receive a free 15g sample of their fave tea?
QUEENSLAND CABARET FESTIVAL 2017 | UNTIL JUN 15
Head down to the Brisbane Powerhouse for the Queensland Cabaret Festival 2017. With sinfully hilarious and soul-touching narratives, this year’s show won’t disappoint. For the first time the UK’s Tony-award-winning actor-author-singer Alan Cumming is gracing us with his cheeky presence. Don’t miss out! This is going to be good.
50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL PARODY | UNTIL AUG 28
Strap yourself in for an experience that will leave your cheeks wet and your sides sore: The Arts Theatre’s hilarious 50 Shades! The Musical Parody. You will laugh your ass off. Word of warning, though: Don’t go in with a full bladder. This musical is literally ‘wet your pants’ kinda funny.
Go on, enjoy your weekend. Enjoy it a little too much even.
