After touring Australia over the past three years to sold out houses and to popular and critical acclaim, The Paris Underground Cabaret comes to Port Pirie’s Northern Festival Centre on September 9. A subversion of the classic French cabaret and variety show, this production brings together a diverse range of performers; magicians, dancers, singers, circus and burlesque artists.

The show includes the magic of Madotti & Vegas, Australia’s most unique magicians, the beauty and grace of aerialist, dancer and circus artist Hannah Trott; the rare skill of tap-dance king Monsieur Eden Read; the dangerously charming and risque repartee of chanteuse Aurora Kurth and international burlesque artiste, dancer and showgirl, Mimi Le Noir! Audiences will witness the delights of a magic spectacular and French burlesque, cabaret and variety show, says co-creator and director of the show Richard Vegas.

Annual flower show

Five-hundred visitors are expected to attend the Port Pirie Lighthouse Uniting Church at 390 The Terrace, as they will be again hosting the Annual Flower Show and Fete from September 13 to 15. The Saturday includes a boot/garage sale. 

With this years theme of “Petals – Perfume and Prickles” they are expecting to have the church hall filled with spectacular arrangements of different colours.  Imagine walking into the hall, experiencing the aroma of the perfume from the flowers etc, petals strew around and the prickles to put a new feature to peruse. The entries will be judges for several different sections.

The church gives thanks for all the generous people in the community that showcase all the wonderful flowers that they have grown.  Not only growing the stunning flowers but also working them in with the theme and putting their own interpretation into the design.

Planning the flower show has been the work of many loyal volunteers from our Congregation as well as the community of Port Pirie. There will be refreshments and morning and afternoon teas – light lunch barbecue, sizzling onions to tempt your tastebuds – there will be plenty of time to peruse the display, but also the many stalls of homemade goodies, arts and crafts. Entry is with a $2.00 donation.
