Gungahlin Cinema Development Update

Today I received an updated from Minister Barr on the Gungahlin Cinema development. In November last year a Request for Expression of Interest closed. Successful applicants from that process will be invited to participate in a select Request for Tender in March this year.

Lights! Camera! Action! Cinema for Gungahlin
Entertainment
With the population for Gungahlin growing and as the children of the area get older it is about time Gungahlin started to get it's own entertainment facilities.

Sarah McLeod live at The Abbey (well supported by Amber Nichols)
Entertainment

Not being a Superjesus fan (apart from hearing a great cover version they did of “You Can’t Stop The Music” on Andrew Denton’s radio show on Triple M) I had no expectations of the show. Amber Nichols and her band came out on stage and I was blown away...
The Ruby Revue live at The Abbey

Canberra has been blessed with some quality burlesque shows recently. The Star Wars Burlesque show got the sci-fi geeks and linux programmers hot under the collar. Closely followed by the Australian Burlesque...

With a career that spans as many years as memorable songs, Renee turned a very chilly Canberra winter’s evening into a performance full of passion and fire. Photos can be...

Entertainment
On a cold winters Canberra Sunday we ventured down to the Gungahlin Town Centre to see Webers Circus. It was good to get out of the house for all of us but the wind was icy cold. Good thing the big top is heated although my feet were like ice blocks from the metal floor. I will have to check...
