The Arts Centre’s festive line up

Christmas shopping can be a daunting task. There’s the distant relative to buy presents for, and the friend who has everything. Rather than navigating congested shopping centres or endlessly refreshing Amazon, you may want to opt for tickets to an Arts Centre event. The 2013 program has a little (or rather, a lot) of everything, from rock concerts (Gotye, David Byrne and St Vincent) to puppet shows.

The season begins with much-lauded theatre production War Horse. Imported from London, the play recounts a bond between a World War I soldier and his horse, Joey. Most remarkable is the life-size puppet of Joey, who is manoeuvred around the stage by three actors. War Horse offers something for everyone but if forced to choose, bring your grandmother and a packet of Kleenex.

For those wanting to be more gentle on their wallet, consider sneakier tactics. The Arts Centre will hold a Mixtape contest in January. Winners will receive tickets to Blaze The Show, a flashy performance of street dance, and have their mix played pre-show. Hamer Hall Public Spaces will also have a healthy helping of free concerts and readings throughout the season.
