Live music, outdoor cinema, community classes, exciting workshops and more are on their way to Werribee City Centre from January 18 – February 24 for the return of the Pop-Up Park.

Kate Ceberano will open the free Friday Night Live concert series, with shows to follow by the winner of The Voice 2018, Sam Perry, Nicky Bomba’s Bustamento, bluesman Ash Grunwald, folk duo The Audreys and legendary rockers the Choir Boys.

Kicking off the weekend has never looked better, with the live music being topped off with a licensed bar at Station Place and plenty of options for dinner under the stars.

Have a wander through the Makers Market each Saturday from 10am until 3pm, with toys, gifts, plants and produce on offer. Stick around with a picnic blanket or beanbag as the park is transformed into an outdoor cinema from 5pm with free popcorn and great movies including The Greatest Showman, Trolls and Captain Underpants to name a few.

From America’s Deep South to the fresh tastes of the Mediterranean, Street Food Sundays will serve up a different cuisine each week from noon–5pm with a rotating line-up of food trucks, live music, traditional dancing and themed kids’ craft.

On weekdays the Pop-Up Park will be buzzing with free community workshops and classes including free weekly Hey Dee Ho music and sports activities for the littlies, art classes, rhyme time, lunchtime music, free pilates, tai chi and come-and-try sport sessions.

A green city oasis with comfy deckchairs, umbrellas and jumbo lawn games of chess, jenga and connect four, the Pop-Up Park is your must-do this summer – perfect for lunch breaks, coffee dates and family fun for all ages.
