If you – or anyone you know – have ever said you can't afford to go out and have fun, sorry, but it's a big lie. We live in a city brimming with endless entertainment for all – for free. So if Christmas spending blew your budget big time, the Stonnignton Council's Jazz in the Gardens series will have you groovin' along – without reaching for your over-heated credit card.
Four outdoor jazz concerts will grace various gardens in the Prahran and Malvern areas from the 10th to the 31st of January, with a special Australia Day concert being held on Tuesday January 26th at Malvern Gardens.
This renowned concert series is an annual event that draws quite a crowd, so get in early, spread out your picnic rug, and ideally top it with plenty of yummies. Everyone's in holiday mode and the ambience is very friendly and relaxed under the starry summer sky.
Just because the concerts are free, please don't assume the entertainment's ordinary. It's quite the contrary, with performances by some of Melbourne's finest jazz artists, along with overseas guests.
