|This Week in Chester|
Want a great way to start your weekend? How about siding up to John Cole Porter & the Handsome Devils at the Fo'c'sle Tavern on Friday night. With a name like that, how can you resist...?!
You never know what treasures you'll find at the Chester Municipal Heritage Society's
Annual Auction & Flea Market, Saturday 6th July, at the Chester
Train Station, 20 Smith Road (VIC). Flea Market starts at 9:00 am.
Auction 9:30 am. Bring a generous spirit, lots of cash, your cheque book
and a chair to recuperate on between the exhausting bidding. Raindate:
July 7 starting 1:00 pm.
Saturday is also a First Saturday on the South Shore with special events and offers....... perhaps you should take your newly acquired auction item over to Cameron's Fine Art Antiques and get a verbal appraisal of your item for only $5 per item (normally $25). You never know.....
After all the excitement, stroll on over to the Chester Playhouse for a concert by Roberto López Afro-Colombian Jazz Orchestra - multi-instrumentalist
Roberto López, along with his virtuoso friends, leads us to a unique
encounter between the wind ensembles of Colombia's Caribbean coast and
North-American Jazz Big Bands. The magic starts at 8pm. If you want a change of pace, The Stolen Tones are playing at the Fo'c'sle Tavern from 9 onwards. Can you fit it all in? It's worth a try.........
Sunday, The Bridgewater Fireman's Band will be playing at the Chester
Bandstand starting 7:00pm. Children are welcome to dance on the grass.
Adults may want to bring a lawn chair. Concerts may be moved or
cancelled in heavy rain at the discretion of the performer(s). For more
info contact Evelyn Ernst at 634-4435.
Tuesday 9th July heralds the first "Picnic (and dancing) in the Park" at
Lordly Park. These free concerts will be held every other Tuesday from
6-8pm, starting with local favourite Jamie Junger, joined by friends Tom
Myers and Lucas Reeves. Think summer of '67 in San Francisco and bring a
picnic supper, your children, grandparents and your dancing shoes. As
well as providing Lordly Park, the Chester Municipal Heritage Society is
making the Maple Cottage washrooms available........ so no excuses! For more information see the poster below or contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 275-5864.
