Sometimes all we need in life is a bit of a heads up.

“Hey, there’s gum on that seat!”

“You’re really going to need your umbrella later!”

Unfortunately real life doesn’t come with these alerts, but at least we can give you a heads up on some of the best things to do in Perth this month so  even if you’ve sat in gum or have frizzy hair, you can still have a good time regardless.

We’ve partnered with Bankwest (the guys who’ve added handy Bankwest Easy Alerts to their mobile banking app) to find the best pop-up events happening around town this month. What are you waiting for? Head to these awesome events  while you can (and don’t forgot to watch where you’re sitting!).
