It’s only a few hours a fortnight of your time and it could be a nice little earner.

Speaking of markets, the Museum Village Markets are open over the long weekend with stalls that include arts and craft, local jams, honey, fresh fruit and veggies, ice-cream, clothing, souvenirs… you name it!

There is a lot to see and do for the whole family at the Museum Village.

What does it take to create something worthwhile?

Join the cast of talented young performers from Esperance Anglican Community School as they bring The Next Big Thing to life on the Civic Centre stage as part of the school’s 10th Anniversary celebrations.

Meet Douglas, a creative soul trying to make his way in the corporate world.

When his demanding Boss issues him with the challenge of coming up with “The Next Big Thing” Douglas embarks on a journey to discover what really matters in life.

This energetic and original show is a celebration of song, dance and drama and will introduce you to some hilarious characters you won’t forget in a hurry.

An entertaining and inspiring story the whole family will enjoy!

The Next Big Thing is on Saturday, June 16, and Friday, June 22.

Keep an eye out in the next couple of weeks for more information about some of the many events happening in July including NAIDOC Week from Sunday, July 8 and continue through to Sunday, July 15, THE 30th Anniversary celebrations of Twin Towns for French Weekend and the gorgeous children’s show Josephine Wants To Dance.
