The week ahead is shaping up to be a fun one. With Fringe World having kicked off on the weekend, it’s officially that time of year where there is so much to do every night of the week that it’s overwhelming; but allow us to try and break it down for you.
Aside from the mayhem that is Fringe (you could definitely hit a show each night if you wanted to know), there’s also a bunch of good times on offer elsewhere; food markets, dance classes and vegan feasts round things out. Here are five awesome things to do this week in Perth.
Fringe World tends to mean nights spent at home become few and far between. We fully support this. Check out our top picks at this year’s festival and start planning your week’s rush ticks. Will it be a slice of comedy, pinch of cabaret or perhaps some live tunes?
