newsCO.com.au–Canberra weekend guide: What’s on March 23-25

March 20, 2018

The funniest week of the year is on in Canberra March 19-25. Many of the shows have already sold out – which is unsurprising with a lineup that includes Ross Noble, Stephen K Amos, Urzila Carlson, Arj Barker, Dave Hughes, Cal Wilson, Nazeem Hussain, Joel Creasy and whole lot more. But there are still tickets to a number of shows until Sunday. Shows are spread across Canberra Theatre Centre, The Street Theatre, Civic Pub, and the ANU. Full program and tickets at canberracomedyfestival.com.au.

3. HARVEST FESTIVAL

Want to know how to halve your household waste, or make compost, or just learn what permaculture is? The Canberra Harvest Festival, on this Saturday at the Canberra Environment Centre, has workshops on those topics, plus a bunch more. You can also feast on locally sourced gourmet food, buy from local producers, and kids can battle it out in the fruit and vegetable growing competition. Entry and the workshops are all free. 2-6pm. For the program see facebook.com/canberraenvirocentre.

4. BONSAI WEEK

It’s all about bonsai at the Arboretum this week. All throughout the week there are demonstrations, workshops with international guest artists, tours of the national collection, displays and auctions. For the full experience, the bonsai collection will be open after hours on Friday night for an event with drinks and canapes, a bonsai demonstration and an auction. Tickets $65 from stickytickets.com.au/63766. For all other bonsai week activities, see nationalarboretum.act.gov.au.

5. ANTIQUES FAIR

You never know what you’ll uncover at this weekend’s ACT Autumn Antiques and Collectables Fair. The fair is a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Canberra City. Proceeds will go to Rise Above, a local charity that provides financial assistance and support to cancer patients and their families in the ACT, Queanbeyan and surrounding areas. It aims to reduce the emotional and financial burden on families who have a member undergoing treatment for cancer. The fair is open on Friday, March 23, 6-9pm, Sunday, March 24, 10am – 5pm, and Sunday, March 25, 10am – 4pm. Entry is $8 for adults, $6 concessions and free for accompanied children under 14.
