Cubby House

Join Tom for some Landscape painting classes (think Bob Ross) down at Cubby House’s inaugural event (Sunday the 18th of October).

From the Cubby House site:

“Rather than a wasted day of woe, Sundays are meant for nourishment. For homecooked meals, meaningful chats and creative beverages. We’re here to help. Concrete Playground and Secret Garden — keen weekenders and lovers of good food, new friends and general tomfoolery — have teamed up to create the ultimate Sunday fortress of fun: Cubby House.

Located at the stunning Strickland House, Cubby House is a temporary hidden haven created purely for you to reclaim the weekend and stand you in good stead for the week to come. Give up the password and crawl into a secret hideaway of local food and drink, lawn games and seriously great talks to ditch the Sunday blues and make the most of your weekend. We’ll even help you send that postcard to your grandma.

Find a spot on the lawn to catch performances, news wrap-ups and comedy handpicked by The Guardian, eat a hearty Sunday roast from Newtowners Raven’s Eye, play your favourite lawn games, find comfort in a Bloody Mary by the Golden Age Cinema guys, pop into a workshop or two and learn a few mad skills, then we’ll even help you sort out your errands in time for Monday.”

Tickets and more info here.
