The Weekender: September 8 – 10

Various times | Various locations

The new adaptation of Stephen King’s terrifying clown horror film, It, makes its way into cinemas this week and will likely be a big draw with young audiences keen for a good scare with their friends.

The film follows a group of children who are terrorised by a ghastly figure – the manifestation of their fears and has already been hailed one of the best screen adaptations of Stephen King’s work. Critics have already compared it favourably to Stand By Me as well and raved its young cast, which includes Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things fame (and if you loved Stranger Things, you’ll no doubt find yourself loving this film too!).

It is screening in cinemas across Australia starting today. Book yourself in for a session now!

Introduction to Middle Eastern Cooking
Saturday, September 9 (3.00pm – 5.00pm) | Kensington Neighbourhood House (89 McCracken St, Kensington)

If you’ve ever tried food from the Middle East and thought to yourself, “Wow, that tasted fantastic! If only I knew how to cook this” then you’re in luck!

As part of Kensington Neighbourhood House’s Local Talent Program, Syrian born Mohammed Sharabah and his wife Salwa will share their love of traditional Middle Eastern food with those who wish to learn more about how they can go about cooking it up themselves.

The couple will prepare a series of dishes for those in attendance, talk about its origins and traditions, and show you exactly how it’s done!

It’s a fantastic opportunity for self-improvement and is a chance for you to potentially show off your cooking skills the next time you have company over! Enrol at its official site now!
