Melbourne’s favourite garden party returns to Birrarung Marr this December. Since it’s debut three years ago, the Royal Croquet Club has been summer favourite and has gone from strength to strength.
This year there’ll be more of a focus on music with a killer lineup of musical acts including Dope Lemon (Angus Stone), Jarryd James, Hayden James, Aston Shuffle, KLP and Touch Sensitive.
As usual, there’ll be plenty of croquet to be played, Pimm’s cups to be drunk and entertainment to keep you there well into the late hours of the evening. Adding to the festival fun, The Parlour a 70-seat pop-up theatre, will be set up to show acts from the Adelaide Fringe Festival, along with roving entertainment and street theatre.
To keep you from going hungry, some of Melbourne’s most loved restaurants will be there including burgers from 8bit, barbequed skewers from Hoy Pinoy, smoked meats and sandwiches from Up In Smoke, and everyone’s favourite Gelato Messina will be returning with their infamous soup tins filled with gelato.
When: 8 December – 23 December
Where: Birrarung Marr, Melbourne
