TribFest 2016

TRIB 1Who needs Glastonbury when you’ve got Trib Fest right on your doorstep? Although it’s tribute bands, you couldn’t get closer to the real thing. It’s fun, it’s cheap and I can guarantee you’ll be singing and dancing all night. Plus, on its 10th year anniversary, the Trib Fest organisers know what they’re doing.

PQ Play Days

pq-generic-playdays-300-250Princes Quay play days is running throughout August. Summer shopping can be stressful, not to mention if you have kids who don’t like the sport as much as you do. Mostly, it’s free and a lifesaver for when you want to take a few minutes out or as a reward for your kids after dragging them around Princes Quay all morning!

More about this can be found here.



Freedom Festival 2016
