December's best events
After farewelling the wildly popular but controversial Real Bodies exhibition, Sydney's human biology fans will get another entrancing, disturbing and educational exhibition with Body Worlds Vital. This separate exhibit features over 150 preserved human cadavers and anatomical specimens, and has toured more than 130 countries worldwide.
Flower markets are no longer solely the domain of local retailers willing to roll out of bed before 3am to pick out the best of the bunch. The Kings Cross Flower Markets will offer Sydneysiders an accessible place to purchase fresh-cut blooms from 9.30am-2.30pm every Sunday.
There's nothing quite like a film under the stars in the beautiful surrounds at Belvedere Amphitheatre in Centennial Park. Settle back with friends and family for a movie and as always, the Moonlight Cinema food truck and bar can supply you with comestibles, but you're welcome to BYO food and drinks.
Ever wondered which Star Wars character you most resemble? Luke, Leia, Solo, Rey, Finn, Chewie, Vader or Yoda? In this new exhibition you’ll be invited to a galaxy far, far away to create your own Star Wars identity, using specialist technology and Star Wars costumes, models, props and artwork.
This brand new farmers' market will be setting up at Erskineville Public School every Saturday from 9am-2pm starting in December, offering a place to buy fresh produce and locally made treats. Food will be the clear focus, and we’ll be getting the goods from Sydney favourites like Brickfields bakery, the ploughers from Pocket City Farm, and the cheese artisans from Kristen Allan Cheesemaker.
American artist Nick Cave – not to be confused with the Australian singer-songwriter – is bringing 16,000 wind spinners, 24 chandeliers, ten miles of crystals, thousands of ceramic birds and one crocodile to Sydney. Cave’s Until is a mammoth new installation work coming to Carriageworks.
Some love La bohème, some loathe it – but whatever your view, we know you're here for the romance, sex, tragedy and comedy, plus the sizzle of Weimar Germany (cue topless club girls, red-curtained cabarets and bedazzling frocks).
You’ve been flung back in time to 1988 Indiana and your mystery-solving skills are required to investigate the disappearance of local residents, and what’s going on at the local shady government facility. This is the premise of the Lock In, which blends theatre, puzzles and cocktails to create a role-playing adventure similar to an escape room.
[Sponsored] Crawl under the blankets with a glass of wine and settle in for another season of movies at the Entertainment Quarter in the Showring. You can snuggle into an inflatable bed, eat, drink and watch a great movie while you take advantage of free popcorn refils.
He's recognised as one of the country’s most respected designers, and Akira Isogawa has made a name for himself as a pioneer of modern Australian and Asian fusion fashion.
