There will be a plant fair at Bellevale on Saturday and Sunday of this weekend – well worth the trip out near Yass!

LA singer/songwriter/performer Daniel McFeeley at Beyond Q in Curtin shops from 4.00 to 6.00pm.

This guy is amazing. His songs are clever, insightful, witty, often hilarious. If you haven’t caught him yet, take this opportunity to hear him in the intimate atmosphere of Beyond Q.

Whoops. Saturday. Sorry.

I wish we could edit.

I can’t wait to see Mikelangelo with Tin Star at the Phoenix on Sunday night. I’ve only heard good things about Tin Star and love Mikel in his other guises. Such a showman!

Multi award winning Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan returns to Australia following his hugely successful sold out tour of Australia & New Zealand in 2010.

In America, Tommy has been invited to perform three times on the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ to rave reviews. His DVD ‘Something Mental’ has been aired numerous times now on America’s huge Comedy Network, Comedy Central as part of their popular ‘Secret Stash’ comedy slot and has now been viewed by over 3 million people.

On 1 April the Opera House will turn blue for Autism Awareness week. As the Grandfather of a fine boy at the top end of the scale, I haven’t seen any activities in Canberra. It is apparently National Young Peoples Week (?) with lots of events but how about the one in 160 kids who have to cope with Autism?
