With killer food trucks (think ice cream sandwiches) and a great partnership with Pickled Pig Brewery, this is an exciting new development for central Gold Coast.

The market takes place this Friday 2 December from 5.00 – 9.00pm and has Kate Leopold and Jules Hayes dishing up live music.

Comedy in the Basement, featuring Mick Meredith, Friday 2 December

Appearing at every major comedy festival in Australia and New Zealand, both in solo shows as well as with fellow comics like Kitty Flanagan, Mick Meredith is no stranger to delivering funny stuff to eager audiences.

First giving comedy a crack in the 1990’s at the legendary Harold Park Hotel, he’s appeared on nova 969, 2day fm, triple m Sydney plus regional radio and was a regular contributor to 2GB’s weekend detention plus he’s been on the NRL Footy Show more than a dozen times. This guy knows his stuff and he knows how to make you laugh.

But The Basement, at The Arts Centre Gold Coast will be his temporary home this Friday night. And the $79 ticket package includes a main meal plus four-hour beverage package. Which is very cool if comedy is your thing.


Moreton at Summertime Sessions in the Village, Mudgeeraba, Friday 2 December

Summertime Sessions in the Village takes place in Cuddihy Park, is totally free and very family-friendly. And as well as hosting Moreton, they’ve also got Ryan Gittoes in support. Things kick off at 5.30pm.
