Do you enjoy singing? Or are you interested in trying a new activity that sees you do more than just shower singing and carpool karaoke?

Come and join this growing group of diverse adults who come together to sing various well-known songs while having a good time. Our Gordon based Adult Glee Club has mums from the Ryde and Northern Districts areas participating, and we’re always on the look out for new members to join our weekly singing group. Expect to sing anything from pop to rock, musical theatre, golden oldies and event the odd current hit.

There’s no auditions, no experience needed. Just a willingness to give it a try and have a good time while doing so. It’s so healthy for the body and mind to sing regularly and lowers stress levels and anxiety. The people are welcoming and if you’ve never sung in a choir or group before, don’t be scared. Our choir directors are very welcoming and will ensure you improve over time (even if you think you can’t).

Brickman Awesome - LEGO® Experience

Brickman Awesome - LEGO® Experience
24/01/2018 @ All Day

THE BRICKMAN IS LOOKING FOR ‘AWESOME’ BRICKIES TO HELP SMASH ANOTHER LEGO® BUILDING RECORD AT BRAND NEW EXHIBITION!

Ryan ‘Brickman’ McNaught announces new Brickman Awesome national tour!

Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught is smashing another ‘awesome’ LEGO® record with his latest Brickman exhibiton and he’s on the hunt for Australian brickies to help him along the way!

Brickman Awesome presented by Toyota is kicking off its national tour in Sydney next month and has already broken LEGO® records before it has even opened!

Marking Ryan’s third exhibition made entirely from LEGO® bricks, Brickman Awesome will showcase the tallest LEGO® model in the Southern Hemisphere – a NASA SLS rocket standing at a whopping 7.5m tall and built from more than 450,000 bricks!  Taking more than 500 hours to create, Ryan has pushed LEGO® building boundaries by installing an in-built lighting system giving the effect that the rocket is blasting off into space!

The exhibition will be made up of 38 never-seen-before LEGO® models, totalling more than 1.5 million bricks and clocking up more than 4,500 hours of build-time!  Brickman Awesome will also showcase the only life-sized LEGO® Harley Davidson ever made and the largest ever LEGO® Caterpillar 797 dump truck! Adding to the awesome-ness is a full-sized LEGO® Australian saltwater crocodile, weighing over 60kgs and built using more than 40,000 LEGO® bricks!

If that’s not awesome enough, visitors will be forgiven for thinking they have stepped inside a zoo as they find themselves surrounded by a LEGO® Kangaroo, Koala and even a giant Orca Whale!

Brickman Awesome has been exclusively curated by Ryan McNaught and his expert team – Ryan is the only LEGO® Certified Professional in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only 14 in the world.

LEGO® fanatics will have lots of opportunities to show off their building skills at Brickman Awesome – visitors can help the Brickman team expand their LEGO® colony of Emperor Penguins, build their very own time machines and even put them on display next to Ryan’s LEGO® models of Doctor Who’s TARDIS and the DeLorean from Back to the Future!

There will be a 24 hour Toyota and TEG Live pre-sale starting at 9am on November 30th and tickets will go on sale to the general public at 9am on December 1st.  Tickets on sale at www.ticketek.com.au

Telstra Thanks is offering a 20% discount on exhibition tickets from 9am on Friday 1 December until 5pm on Monday 11 December, exclusively for Telstra customers.  Head to telstra.com/arts for more details on how to purchase.

Brickman Awesome will be in Sydney from 26th December 2017 until 4th February 2018 at the ICC Sydney, Convention and Exhibition Centre, before continuing around Australia, stopping in Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane

This is Australia

Barangaroo Reserve

26 January 2018

Sunrise to Sunset

 

This is Australia invites you to relax, eat, listen, play and laugh. Join us at Barangaroo to share in our collective story through food, music and art.

Start the day at the Sunrise Ceremony conducted by the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council and then enjoy Sydney Festival’s Bayala-Baraya: Sing Up Country (Link) performance which is part of the WululOra (link) ceremony, the official opening of the NSW Australia Day Council’s program. WugulOra (link) starts with the ceremonial Mourning Fire travelling across the harbour from Me-mel (Goat Island) where a procession of Aboriginal women transport the fire to Barangaroo Reserve.

From 8.30am an all-day Sydney brunch curated by Jared Ingersoll will see a menu reflect the best flavours of Australia including international favourites fused to create new culinary delights. There will be something for everyone (even the fussy) like these local favourites: bacon & egg rolls from our Aussie car-be-cue, avo’ on toast and meat pies. There will even be a decent cuppa tea on hand. A menu for all of us!

Music director and DJ, Peewee Ferris, will deliver an immersive soundtrack showcasing the musical diversity of Australia. The soundtrack will commence with a live performance by Casey Donovan and will continue throughout the day with Latin, Reggae, Blues and Soul. There will be songs for the kids, some Funk to Aussie Pop and throw in some Aussie Rock’n’Roll. A soundtrack for all of us!

More activities throughout the day include watching Sydney’s annual Ferrython from a perfect vantage point on the Reserve.

As the day draws to a close, we invite you to participate in Sydney Festival’s Four Thousand Fish.

Four Thousand Fish invites you to visit Nawi Cove and create your own frozen fish using sea water and a cast mould to help return the frozen fish to the Harbour. Join us at this large-scale art installation to celebrate fisherwoman Barangaroo, the influential and resilient Cammeraygal woman after whom the place is named.
