Arts Events in Melbourne September 20 – September 26

The Melbourne Fringe Festival

It’s time for one of Melbourne’s most eclectic festivals – the Melbourne Fringe Festival, which combines comedy nights, art installations and circus performances (yes, really!) in one three week extravaganza. Take a peek at the full program here, or check out the Herald Sun’s top event picks here. We’re dying to go to the free 1990s dance party, and A Midnight Dreary for a late night performance of classic horror tales.

Materiality, a fiction and arts journal, is launching its ‘time’ themed issue at Sticky Institute on Friday September 20. For a bit of fun, attendees will be invited to fill out a HELLO MY NAME IS______ personal quiz that will be sealed up in the manuscripts collection at the State Library until 2023. If you’re interested, you can fill out the quiz ahead of time here.

Miles Franklin winner Alex Miller will be launching his new book, Coal Creek, at Readings Hawthorn on Saturday September 21. The novel focuses on a friendship between two men in country Queensland, and the struggles and betrayals that arise from that friendship.

The Night Guest

On September 23, the Wheeler Centre’s Debut Mondays will feature newcomers Fiona McFarlane (The Night Guest), Kirsten Krauth (Just_a_girl), Adam Browne and Emily Prince. Head to the Moat from 6:15pm to be entertained by their free readings.

And if you grew up loving Gizmo, Wicked and the Cabbage Patch series (and this theme song brings back fond memories) then you’ll be chuffed by this event. Dumbo Feather is hosting a night in conversation with Paul Jennings on Wednesday September 25 at The White House in St Kilda. There will be wine, nibbles and a 20 minute Q&A session with the famous children’s author.
