According to today’s Canberra Times Today column, the Royal Canberra National Poultry Show takes place at the Fitzroy Pavilion at the Exhibition Centre this weekend. There will be chooks of all shapes and sizes there, for show and even some for sale (live.) The Show will be opened by the patron of the Royal National Capital Agricultural Society himself, Jon Stanhope.

Open Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 9am-2pm. Monday, roosting.

What? Nobody’s made the connection between Stanhope and turkeys, or Stanhope and a goose? Maybe with the long weekend, sarcasm is also on holiday.

Chrome Returns – 8PM 11th June 2011

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=126030487476974

Felt Bar
40 Franklin St, Manuka

Chromies and Chromettes,

It’s been far too long.

It’s time to dust off your boots.
…To pour yourselves back into your PVC.
To re-zip the zippers and buckle the straps of your bondage pants.
To freeze your hair in time with the tears of Robert Smith.

Chrome has returned with a few changes and needs all of the goths, the rivetheads, the ravers, the geeks and the freaks to join us in welcoming back Canberra’s answer to Industrial/Goth Clubbing

Please make sure you take note of the below to make sure there is no confusion about the event.

********************
Our new home is at FELT Bar in Manuka! FELT is a bright new contender in the Canberra nightlife and have asked especially for us. Lets not disappoint them and make sure we bring the party.

Please make sure you take note of the date, we are on the SECOND Saturday of the month, not the first.

In order to combat the 2am Canberra Licensing laws, we’ll be starting at 8PM however the bar is required to stop serving alcohol at 2AM. This is not negotiable.

Enjoy yourself! If you’re not enjoying yourself, have a chat to one of the DJs and we’ll see what we can do to help you out. If you have any ideas you want to share, shoot us an email or leave a message on the Chrome fan page.
********************

Entry to Chrome is $5 at the door.

Sorry kids but one thing which hasn’t changed is that this is still a 18+ event! If you would like to see an all ages goth/industrial gig in Canberra send an email to info@clubchrome.com.au and we will see what we can do for you.

Chrome at its new home FELT features:
A beautiful new sound system
Lights
Black lights/UV lights
Lasers
Plenty of pool tables
Alcohol with special cocktails created just for the night.
Friendly, safe atmosphere

This is likely to be the biggest yet – make sure you don’t miss out.
