PIAF ignites Subiaco

Subiaco audiences are in for a treat next month when three incredible shows light up the city during the Perth International Arts Festival. Indulge in some classic theatre, music-theatre and circus right here in our own backyard. 
A cast of fifteen acrobats and five musicians whisk us away to a Vietnamese village with a dazzling array of juggling, balancing, contortion and daring feats in A O Lang Pho at Regal Theatre from 16 to 25 February.
Bite down on three courses of classic drama in a marathon theatre event serving up an eight hour Australian exclusive. A most topical and relevant production The Gabriels reflects on our fast changing world and a tumultuous US election year. Playing at Subiaco Arts Centre from 11 to 18 February.
An exuberant and uplifting music-theatre experience The Manganiyar Classroom will captivate and delight audiences with the sublime voices of the Indian children from this tribal community. This joyous theatrical experience plays at Regal Theatre on 3 and 4 March. 

Perth International Arts Festival runs from 10 February to 5 March. 


If free live music is your thing then pack a picnic and head outside every Sunday until 12 February for the city's sunset@subi concerts.

Get grooving with upcoming soul, funk and brass acts not to be missed including 
Randa And the Soul Kingdom, Funk Club House Band and The Brow

Plus, this Sunday celebrate WA's young guns of indie-pop at Cliffe Sadlier Reserve from 2pm.

The lifeline of our library

Did you know Subiaco residents have enjoyed a library service for over 100 years? Here are a few highlights from the past century. To find out more about your library, check out the #FlashbackFriday series on Subiaco Library's Facebook page. 

1898 - a small lending library operates from the council chambers
1927 - the library is relocated to Bagot and Rokeby Roads (the former post office)
1951 - Subiaco Children's Library opens
1960s - lending becomes free for adults!
1971 - the city builds a new library building, dedicated to Eveyln H Parker
2013 - New greenery is added to the front of the building.
The current Subiaco Library building was built in honour of Evelyn H Parker, former Mayor of Subiaco and the first female Mayor in Western Australia. Evelyn Parker was a teacher at Subiaco Primary School from 1952 to 1967 and Mayor of Subiaco from 1974 to 1977.
The library has recently improved its online home too. Check out the new online catalogue where you can login, request items, reserve and search for what’s new and popular.
