Canberra, we might have only begun to re-discover our city after almost three months of lockdown, but the (COVID-safe) events are coming thick and fast.
Luckily, with the BOM forecasting an up to 90% chance of rain across the weekend, now is the perfect time to check out what’s happening around the city. Here are our picks.
Help your little one make their own DIY Christmas Candle
Canberra Centre is kicking of Christmas festivities with a DIY candle making workshop for little ones and their larger humans this Saturday.
Canberra’s own scent-saviours Lucian Candles will be helming the workshop, with children ages six and up invited the join the fun!
With six sessions across this Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November (at 9 am, 10.15 am and 11.30 am each day), you’ll get to watch as your little ones are taught the magic of candle making, including choosing their own scents and decorating their candle tin.
Sessions are $10 each and bookings are required
Say hullo to the British Film Festival
Bringing you the cream of cinema from the British Isles, the annual British Film Festival is brimming over with session times at NewActon’s Palace Electric until 3 December.
With films featuring the likes of Judy Dench, Clare Foy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jamie Dornan, Helen Mirren and Michael Caine (to name just a few), did someone say ‘the perfect way to spend a rainy weekend’?
Get Footloose at Knightsbridge Penthouse
You’ve heard the news—dancing at clubs and bars is back from this Friday 12 November and unsurprisingly, Braddon’s Knightsbridge Penthouse is bringing back the boogie in style with a Footloose Friday dance party from 10 pm.
The cocktails will be chilled and the tracks from DJ Mr Michael will be even chillier (…you know what I mean) but be quick—with no tickets for this event, it’s first-come, first Footloose.
Have a sensible chuckle at The Wharf Revue

For those who like their political satire served ice cold with a healthy dose of irreverence, you can’t go past The Wharf Revue.
An annual occasion for those on any side of the political spectrum, head to Canberra Theatre Centre for more than a sensible chuckle at the shenanigans of our political elite (and not so elite).
Be Nurtured at DESIGN Canberra presents Nurture
Earlier this year, the dedicated team behind Canberra’s premier arts festival, DESIGN Canberra, made a heartbreaking decision to cancel their 2021 festival due to COVID-related concerns.
In its place, however, has sprung a new offering—Nurture—a month-long program of virtual and small-group events and workshops designed to support wellbeing and creativity after a difficult 24 months for Canberra.
Designed to give Canberra a COVID-safe dose of the arts, Nurture will use art, design, creativity and mindfulness to instil a sense of calm creativity in the Canberran community as well as platforming and supporting DESIGN Canberra’s artist and maker community until 28 November.
