What’s On June

June 1, 2020 in News, What's on in Clyde

WELCOME TO JUNE

As we all know, excitingly, social distancing measures are gradually easing, which means now we not only can use the amazing parks, playgrounds, outdoor communal gym equipment and skate parks, but we can also visit our favourite local restaurants, head to the zoo or visit an art gallery or museum.

As a community, it is very important that we support our local businesses this time, so we have put together a list of some of our favourite local spots that you can now visit from June 1st.

Please note however, that distancing measures are still in place, so we need to make sure that until restrictions are lifted even further, that we are all respecting our neighbours and community at large.

We hope you enjoy!

Ballet is powerful magic. It can draw you out of your lounge room and into forests and castles and starry skies. It can make you forget your worries and feel the freedom and exhilaration of unbridled leaps and lifts. Throughout its centuries of history, ballet has always offered the most wonderful escape from troubled times, and even though our theatres are closed, we want to offer you that gift.

The Australian Ballet’s ‘At Home with Ballet TV’ digital season will beam premium-quality productions right to your couch for free. They’ve hand-picked a selection of their most beloved and inspiring ballets, and each will have a limited two-week season on our streaming platform, Ballet TV.

June will feature a production of Giselle, a romantic ballet about a young girl who falls madly in love with a duke in disguise. When she realises his deception, the shock sends her mad and she dies. Raised from her grave by the vengeful Queen of the Wilis, she must forgive her lover and save him from death.
