The Weekender: May 25 – 27
WHETHER you’re feeling charitable, artsy or musical, Catherine May has something for you to do and see in Melbourne this weekend.
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
Thursday 24 May, Around Town
Ok, so it’s not just a weekend event but it’s for a great cause so we’ll let it slide. Have morning tea all across the city this Thursday to raise money for the Cancer Council. Don’t worry if you miss the official celebrations on Thursday though as organisers are encouraging people to host their own morning tea events throughout May and June so you never know where you’ll come across a big tea party. Check out their website to find out more details about events in your area.
The Affordable Art Fair
Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 May, Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton
Are you a fan of fine art but lack the budget to purchase a Picasso? The Affordable Art Fair is the event for you as it showcases works from a new generation of artists that come with a smaller price tag. There’s also a special exhibition inside offering visitors the chance to check out a select collection of art from Asian artists as well as work produced solely by artists under 35. Advance tickets cost $10 for concessions or $15 on the door. For more information, visit The Affordable Art Fair website.
