Thrills and spills aplenty are on offer this week in Brisbane, as three very different events offer action of both the ancient and modern varieties.
First up on Thursday is the Archive Untapped Grand Finals, an epic battle of the bands that will pit four of Brisbane’s most talented lives acts against each other for the chance to win $10,000.
Then on Saturday medieval knights will be battling it out in a jousting tournament at the Abbey Medieval Museum, while in Redcliffe big kids and little kids will be battling to see who can pull off the maddest skateboard and BMX tricks.
But if you fancy something a bit more peaceful don’t despair – the G20 cultural events program comes to your rescue once again with some community fun in parks through out the city.
When: Thursday 13th November from 8.00 pm
Where: Archive Beer Boutique, 100 Boundary Street, West End
The Archive Untapped is an original music competition presented by well known West End resident, Audrey’s Music Shop. Over the last nine weeks 36 of Brisbane’s most talented original bands have played their hearts out in the weekly heats for a spot in the grand final and the chance to win $10,000.
If you love live music that’s raw and real, then this is one gig you wont want to miss! And make sure you keep an eye out for the tall red-head: that’s Sally Lindenberg, and Audrey’s owner and all round cool chick 😉
When: Saturday 15th November, 6.00 pm
Where: Queensland State Equestrian Centre (QSEC), Cnr Tuckeroo Dr & Beerburrum Rd, Caboolture
Cost: Adults – $55 Children/Concessions – $45 Family Pass – $160
Prepare to be caught up in a medieval world where knights from two warring families come together to joust for the honour of their houses! We saw jousting at the annual Abbey Medieval festival earlier this year for the first time and the atmosphere was incredible – so if you can make it up there you are in for a magical evening. Food will be available at the venue as well as medieval crafts and displays.
When: Saturday 15th November, 9.00 am – 4.00 pm
Where: Redcliffe Skate Park, Cnr of Anzac & Oxley Avenues, Redcliffe
Ramp Day Out is a family day on wheels! Big kids and little kids can tear it up at skateboarding and BMX workshops, or test their acrobatic abilities at a Parkour workshop. There will also be BMX and skateboard competitions for those who want to show off their tricks, as well as Zorb balls and live DJs.
When: Friday 14th – Sunday 16th November
Where: Locations throughout Brisbane
This weekend parks across Brisbane will turn into community celebrations as they host Great Get Togethers, one of the final initiatives of the G20 cultural events program.
