This Weekend In Perth

By Shelby West
17th Dec 2015

This weekend is all about getting festive and welcoming Santa into our homes! It’s also about vintage markets, yoga festivals and a food circus.

A little bit of food, a little bit of drink and a whole lot of yoga goodness—that’s what weekends are made for. Here’s what’s on this weekend in Perth.

Friday 18 December


This pop-up exhibition is open to the public this weekend and features some of the most eccentric, colourful and amazing glasswork we’ve ever seen. Award-winning artist Denise Pepper will be showcasing her glasswork along with other work she has produced from copper and other raw and beautiful materials. You can expect to snatch up some glass bowls, platters, wall pieces and heaps more.

Where: Emerge Gallery, Inglewood
When: All Weekend!

It's safe to say that we have been waiting for a Titanic exhibition since we first saw the blockbuster in 1997. Titanic has finally arrived in Perth and this will definitely be a once in a lifetime opportunity to view and interact with some scaled recreations of the famous ship. One of the highlights will be recreations of the grand staircase and first class corridor, along with over 375 artefacts from the ship that date back 100 years. The exhibition is an immersive and interactive experience filled with graphics, music and video showcasing what it was like to live on the Titanic. And yes…the “Heart of the Ocean’ necklace will be on display. Eeeep!

When: All Weekend!
