The countdown is on Perthlings! It’s less than a week until Santa will be flying down our chimneys or waddling up to our doorsteps. Whether you have covered every square metre of your house in tinsel or think you will have a mental breakdown if you hear Michael Buble one more time, we have just the activities to put you in a jolly mood for the special day. Here are five awesome things to do in Perth this week.
Monday 19 December
Christmas In The Quad At St George’s College
What better way to get in the festive spirit than a twilight Christmas concert? Grab your mates, a picnic rug, some champers and fruit mince pies and come along for some old school carols under the stars. Warm up those vocal cords and get ready to sing along. Entry is a gold coin donation, register here.
Pop-up Markets At Cathedral Square
Looking for the perfect gift for that person who is always so hard to buy for? Look no further than the Cathedral Square markets. You’ll be able to choose from a large selection of trinkets, skincare, organic products, vintage gear and Honeycake (mmmmmm!) Bring your Santa’s sack and stock up on unique goodies. Open ‘til Wednesday, you can find more details and a list of stalls here.
Tuesday 20 December
Barefaced Musical Extravaganza At The Bird
The Bird sure knows how to host a fancy Christmas shindig. Think Perth’s best storytellers (awkward Christmas party stories galore) and some incredible musicians to back it up. It’s all ages and only $10 entry. Grab your tix here.
Christmas Nativity At Forrest Place
Nothing gets us more in the festive spirit than a Christmas nativity. Forrest Place will host over 100 WA star performers and a bunch of cute and cuddly animals from Tuesday to Friday this week, so it's the perfect spot to be if you've got some rugrats to entertain now that the school holidays are here. Come early to grab a seat and catch some pre-show entertainment. Get more info here.
Thursday 22 December
Minky G And Rosco At Creatures Next Door
Suffering from retail-induced Christmas carol overload? Vocalist Minky G and guitarist Rosco are here to save the day with a mix of original and cover jazz/pop tunes! Previously performing with the likes of Passenger, they are guaranteed to put on a mesmerising show. Grab some bevvies from Creatures Next Door and sit back and enjoy. Get more info about the free gig here.
