As part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival, an interesting event is being held this Sunday at The Forum.
What: The Knitting Factory with Audrey Jeane’s Travelling Slide Show
Where: The Forum, corner of Flinders Street and Russell Street, Melbourne.
When: Sunday October 18th at 2pm
The Knitting Factory is an afternoon picnic of tea, cakes and swing dancing in the Forum Theatre. Featuring the sights and sounds of Audrey Jeane’s Travelling Slideshow, a selection of kitsch and charming 35mm slides collected from the golden memories of Melbourne’s senior residents. The slide show is complete with a terrifically handsome LP soundtrack.
Playing out the afternoon will be swing band The Snappers. This sextet performs a broad array of styles from the 20’s through to the modern day.
Also on display will be a surprising ‘cake installation’ from darlings of this year’s Royal Melbourne Show The Hotham Street Ladies
Sadly, I can’t go because I’ll still be in Sydney at the vintage fair launching my book so if you have the opportunity, please have a lamington for me. I hope the day goes well enough that they decide to hold more events.
