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 Perth 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?

Whether you want to see cabaret, comedy, theatre or a have a full blown interactive artsy experience, there’s plenty going on in the city and around the outskirts of Perth—there's even some events on the coast.
