2015 in review

2016 is here and it comes with a host of events, festivals, gigs, bars, performances and meals to enjoy. Before everyone dives headlong into the 2016 arts season, it’s time to look back at 2015 and the best things about the year!

My best picks

Best meal

I have eaten some really fantastic meals this year, but the stand out has to be Mary’s. Why? Find out here.

Best drink

This is really hard, but I’d have to say that Mechanic’s probably served up the best drinks for me this year. I find myself at that place two-plus times a week, I can’t get enough of it. Here’s why.

Best performance (theatre)

I saw a lot of theatre this year but two performances really stood out for me. Dinner, by Black Swan Theatre Company, was funny, engaging and had a great twist to end off the show. Women of Letters, presented by Perth Theatre Company, was such an honest performance, I felt honoured to be a part of it.

Best performance (music)

Live music is something that I hold very dear, and I cannot go past the outstanding performances that The Amity Affliction and co gave on their Big Ass Tour. Without a doubt, the best gig of the year!

Best interview

There’s been more of a focus on talking to performers about why they’re doing what they’re doing and this year, Philly Blunt was a pleasure to talk to about Breakfest and why it’s such an incredible thing to be involved with.
