Eastern Suburbs

Surry Hills Markets

1 December 1 2020 (Monthly event)

The Surry Hills Markets are a fundraiser for the Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre, specialising in handmade, second-hand and recycled goods. The markets are held in Shannon Reserve, on the corner of Crown and Collins Streets.

Motel Mexicola, Bondi 

Saturday, November 14 & all December 

Bondi Beach Public Bar’s regular menu, interior and playlist will be replaced by those of Motel Mexicola! Expect tacos, tequila and colourful tiles aplenty.

Cinderella, the Grounds of Alexandria 

Between now and January 3, 2021

You don’t need a fairy godmother to enjoy Sydney’s latest pop-up. You don’t need to arrive via a carriage that used to be a pumpkin, either. When you’re having a bite to eat at The Grounds of Alexandria, you will be able to wander through lit-up laneways that look like they’ve just stepped out of a fairytale — and tuck into a pumpkin carriage sponge cake.

Inner West

The Show Must Go On Dendy Cinema, Newtown 

Now – Wednesday, December 2

When it comes to watching some of the most entertaining movies ever committed to celluloid, Dendy Newtown is taking Grease‘s advice — by giving viewers more. The venue is dedicating a heap of sessions to big-screen musicals. Yes, it’s expected that you’ll hear some singing from the audience.

Outer West 

Pop up Disney+ Drive-In, Bankwest Stadium 


Since late in 2019, when Disney launched its own streaming platform, fans of its animated classics, beloved hits and many, many super-popular franchises have been able to binge their way through the Mouse House’s back catalogue from the comfort of their couch. Fans are being asked to leave their houses to check out a selection of the company’s famed titles — all thanks to the new pop-up Disney+ Drive-In that’s coming to Sydney.
