This weekend marks the beginning of February and brings with it the promise of an exciting month. From a day trip to the blue mountains to a trip down the Oscars nomination list, and all the fun, festivities and food in between, its shaping up to be a pretty good weekend in Sydney indeed.
Go: to the Roaring 20s Festival
Relive the golden age of the 1920s and find an excuse to revisit the opulent Blue Mountains with the Roaring 20s and all that Jazz Festival running throughout February. This annual event begins this weekend, and celebrates all that the Roaring 20s had to offer, with its iconic art, outrageous music and fabulous outfits. Jazz lovers will revel in the live music and Charleston dance challenge; but even if the Blues aren’t your thing, there’s plenty to see, do and eat (at the Majestic Long Lunch). Check out the full list of events every weekend here:
See: $5 Movie Tickets at Palace
Palace Cinema’s is helping you binge on the Oscar season’s best films this weekend, with $5 films at Palace Central from the 1st-7th of February. On top of the quality films at bargain prices, Palace is offering bottomless popcorn and Prosecco to add to your movie-going experience. Keep up to date with the Oscar buzz and avoid having to sneakily watch the trailers as the awards are handed out. Book tickets in advance to ensure your spot.
Party: At the Laneway Afterparty
Can’t make Laneway Festival this Sunday but don’t want to miss all the action? Party on down to Oxford Arts Factory on February 4th and join the late night kick-ons with some of the best acts from the festival. BADBADNOTGOOD will be playing live, and will be joined by Kllo, Flexmami and local artists for DJ sets long into the night. First allocation of tickets are exhausted, so make sure you get in quick.
Eat: Sunset 20º North
The classic Sydney sunset is about to be made even better this February with the Sunset20ºN festival of food, culture, music and women at Barangaroo starting this weekend. For the next four weekends, a showcase of female leaders, artists, chefs and creators will be held in Towns Place within the Barangaroo reserve. With delicious food from a different female guest chef, a drinks list highlighting the best female winemakers and producers, and a line up of free concerts from Australian and Indigenous female artists such as Sampa the Great and Thelma Plum on offer each weekend, you’ll be clearing your schedule to celebrate with Sunset20ºN.
