5 Ways to Make Mum’s Day
Mother’s Day is on everyone’s mind, but what do you get the person in your life who swears they want nothing? We have your back, with five ideas sure to make someone’s day, no matter who you’re choosing to spoil on Sun 9 May.
Get outdoors this Mother’s Day. If you missed out on a ticket to the Gallery, never fear – Echoes of Gold is our free and massive concert on the Outdoor Stage. Five bands, DJs, pop-up Sunday markets, local food, and brews.
We may be tooting our own horn here, but our Memberships are top-notch. For an annual fee of $38, members are treated to special sneak peek events (including early access to sought-after tickets and reservations), discounted prices to exhibitions, live performances, and cinema.
Everyone needs a creative outlet! Treat the important people in your life (and maybe treat yourself?) to a visit to the new HOTA Gallery, with general entry opening Mon 10 May. Looking for something more hands-on? Life Drawing is returning with rooftop views, so grab your Mum and let your creativity flow.
A celebration of one of the original femme fatales. Opera Australia is bringing Georges Bizet’s Carmen to HOTA. Experience vibrant sets and vintage-inspired costumes, bringing to life picturesque Spain. This is a must see for anyone who appreciates live performances.
Catch an advanced screening of June Again, an Australian film starring top talent Claudia Karvan (Love My Way, Jack Irish), Stephen Curry (Hounds of Love, The Secret Life of Us) and Noni Hazlehurst (Ladies in Black, Candy). This specialty screen will feature a pre-recorded Q&A with the cast, so have some lunch at the HOTA Café and see the film before everyone else.
If all else fails, pick-up a HOTA gift voucher and let her have the flexibility to try something new, pursue her passions, or get immersed in the cultural happenings of the Gold Coast. Conveniently available online for those who need the perfect gift, fast.
