See live music and films for free at Werribee this summer

The lawns of the Werribee city centre are becoming a summery hub of food and free entertainment between January 19 and February 25.

If you’re already back at work fear not: during the daylight hours Pop Up Park is the perfect place for a lunchtime breather with deck chairs and umbrellas plus giant chess, jenga and connect four.

Friday nights is where the entertainment really kicks off. The line-up of all ages shows features Mental As Anything, Anthony Callea, Darren Middleton, Lior, Nathaniel and INXSIVE (an INXS tribute band). The good folk at the Pop Up Park know what’s on your mind come Friday so they’re also setting up a pop-up bar to accompany your tunes.

Saturday is movie night with two screenings per session. Bring your mini humans along to the 5pm session for animated fun and childhood classics like Babe, Despicable Me and Freaky Friday. The second screening at 7.30pm pairs the old with the new with films like Dirty Dancing, the Dressmaker, Footloose and the Avengers all being screened.

Finally, food. Sundays at Pop Up Park are food truck central with four savoury and one sweet option every week. No one feels like cooking on Sunday so set yourself up with some food truck treats and have lunch on the lawns.

All the free summer fun in the west begins Friday January 19 at Werribee city centre.
