Where Melbourne - - Contents - Roshan Sukhla Pub­lish­ing Edi­tor

There is plenty to see and do this March in Mel­bourne.

It’s fes­ti­vals galore this month. The For­mula 1 2018 Rolex Aus­tralian Grand Prix races into town. The mas­sive Moomba fes­ti­val is also on, while the an­nual Mel­bourne Food and Wine Fes­ti­val shines a spot­light on the city’s great restau­rants and fan­tas­tic pro­duce. Green thumbs will love the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Flower & Gar­den Show, while fash­ion­istas should head to the Vir­gin Aus­tralia Mel­bourne Fash­ion Fes­ti­val. At the end of the month the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Com­edy Fes­ti­val will have you in stitches too (page 10).

The amaz­ing stage ex­pe­ri­ence of “Beau­ti­ful: The Ca­role King Mu­si­cal” comes to Mel­bourne this month (page 20). Fea­tur­ing the in­cred­i­ble story of the rise of singer-song­writer Ca­role King, the mu­si­cal in­cludes clas­sic hits like “The Lo­co­mo­tion” and “I Feel the Earth Move”. In this is­sue, we speak to ris­ing star Josh Piter­man, who plays Ca­role King’s hus­band and song­writ­ing part­ner Gerry Gof­fin (page 14).

Turn to the Where Now fea­ture (page 16) for March’s must-see ex­hi­bi­tions, shows and events in­clud­ing White Night Bal­larat, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” the mu­si­cal, and the “Marimekko: De­sign Icon 1951 to 2018” ex­hi­bi­tion at Bendigo Art Gallery.

How­ever you choose to spend your time here in Mel­bourne, we hope you have a thrilling stay!
