Where To Get Cultured In Brisbane After Dark

By Phoebe McRae
2nd Feb 2017

Getting your daily, weekly, monthly or even yearly dose of culture can be tough. We know. We get it. You’re just super busy finishing your third Netflix series of the week (no judgey eyes, we promise).

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Wilson Parking to bring you this neat little list of the best cultural events happening in Brisbane this February. They’re all on after dark, so you can’t use work as an excuse. #Sorrynotsorry.

Go with your mate (or a date) and don’t let the idea of parking scare you off because Wilson Parking totally lets you Book-A-Bay (yes, you can pay with Amex) and secure yourself a park, without the stress, before you even leave the office. Genius?

Brisbane Comedy Festival Gala


Summer might be coming to an end but we all know February and March are the hottest months of the year by far, so laugh the humidity away (at least for one night) at the Brisbane Comedy Festival Gala. Marking the beginning of the month long fiesta, guarantee yourself bulk LOLs thanks to legends like Matt Okine, Steve Hughes, Anne Edmonds and Rhys Nicholson. Even though you can Book-A-Bay nearby, don’t get there too early because you’re going to want to avoid the front row.

When: From 6pm, 26th February
Where: City Hall, CBD
Cost: $60 (plus booking fee)

Sugar Spin @ GOMA


Your favourite art gallery (GOMA, obvs) is turning 10 this year and to celebrate every floor of the gallery will be completely transformed with awe-inspiring art. Over 250 contemporary artworks exploring light, space, architecture and the senses will be on show for Sugar Spin; including Nervescape (aka a multi-coloured landscape of synthetic hair), and Heard (colourful sculptural horses brought to life by dancers). Best seen at after dark we suggest you Book-A-Bay nearby and catch it at Up Late (on Fridays for special events) and stay all night.

When: Now until 17th April
Where: GOMA, Southbank
Cost: Entry is free

Flickerfest 2017

New Farm

Film buffs don’t want this secret to get out, so just between us we’re lifting the lid on the whole thing—you need to get yourself to Flickerfest. Australia's only Academy accredited short film festival is coming to Brisbane for two nights only, so treat yourself to the largest popcorn box money can buy (and a choc top too) then settle in for a night of films made specifically for your limited attention span.

When: 7:30pm Friday 10th & Saturday 11th February
Where: Palace Centro Cinemas, New Farm
Cost: From $20

So come on Brisbanites, Book-A-Bay then go get a healthy dose of bloody culture!
