Christmas spirit is really starting to take hold in Northern Tasmania and we are feeling summer temperatures creeping in to match our festive mood.
Launceston’s Choir of High Hopes will be spreading cheer as they perform at the St Helens Carols on the Foreshore event on Saturday night. Bring a rug, picnic and your best singing voice.
Art lovers have their choice of exhibitions this weekend, with Sarah Courtney opening the Women, Art, Business exhibition at the University of Tasmania’s Academy Gallery on Friday night and Wayne Brookes is showing his intricate artworks at Woolmers Estate until December 14.
Alternatively you could head to the Niche Market on Friday and Saturday for Launceston’s Best Beard competition and some Christmas shopping.
Whatever you do, have a great weekend Launceston.
