The Sapphires is one of the Australia’s best-loved stories. Winning multiple awards as a play, film and soundtrack album there was one challenge left and that was to undertake a national tour of Australia and bring this story directly to local stages. Four young Aboriginal country music singers in regional Australia suddenly get the chance to change their tune and their lives. The Sapphires is a funny, heart-warming tale inspired by the true story of Tony Briggs’ mother – the incredible journey of four Yorta Yorta Women, who sing classic soul hits against the backdrop of massive social upheaval. “A gem of a play. Briggs mixes fact and fiction to lay bare and flesh out his celebratory tale which, though political in patches, is focused on the personal. The Sapphires is heartfelt and joyous. Superb.” Bryce Hallett, Sydney Morning Herald Written and Directed by Tony Briggs. Cast Gail: Ngaire Pigram Kay: Matilda Brown Cynthia: Mindy Kwanten Julie: Lorinda May Merrypor Dave: Mike Smith Warning contains adult themes, simulated warfare and coarse language.

The Berri Hotel are proud to Partner with Adelaide Guitar Festival to present Guitars in Bars, hosted in the Berri Hotel Bistro from 7pm on Thursday the 25th of July. Join us for dinner and enjoy 3 quality artists perform. MAX SAVAGE Max Savage combines rock and roll swagger with sardonic suburban sophistication blithely occupying the space between pub rock, jazz and country with an almost casual indifference. Highly regarded both in Australia and abroad, Savage has performed alongside the likes of Keith Urban, Marlon Williams, Guy Sebastian, The Boom Crash Opera and Russell Morris TOM KNEEBONE Tom Kneebone is a guitarist from Adelaide, South Australia. He is the founding member of the Bearded Gypsy Band and has worked as a session musician with many local Adelaide acts, performing both interstate and overseas. He is an accomplished musician in a range of different styles and genres and has worked alongside some of Australia’s finest musicians. Tom’s guitar playing mixes elements of Jazz with a deep love of traditional folk music from around the world. He takes inspiration from Jazz guitarists such as Julian Lage and Django Reinhardt, fingerstyle players like Tommy Emmanuel, as well as bluegrass pickers like Tony Rice. KELLY MENHENNETT Kelly Menhennett, daughter to a 3rd generation grape growing father and cabaret singing mother, was born and bred amongst vineyards in the South Australian countryside. After years working as a red winemaker, the healthy dose of largely soul, country and rock & roll music that infused her blood as a child eventually led her to the stage. Since then she's gone on the win the national Telstra Road To Discovery award for her songwriting, independently released 2 full length albums and performed at iconic national and international festivals both solo and with her band. Most recently Kelly was the recipient of the inaugural “Ryan Freeman Live Music Award” at the 2015 SA Music awards and won the ARBA best roots album for 2014/15 with her latest release, Small Dreams.

DANIEL THOMPSON'S JOHNNY CASH LIVE - SAN QUENTIN 50 YEARS ON

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin. With the Folsom album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music. During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song San Quentin which opens with the lyrics “San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’. 50 Years on, Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live hits the road celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black. A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career. After 6 National tours and having performed more than 175 shows, Johnny Cash Live has become lauded as one of Australia’s premier tribute acts. With powerhouse backing band, The Tennessee Express and led by Australia’s own Man in Black, Daniel Thompson, Johnny Cash Live presents an unforgettable night paying tribute to one of music’s most iconic and influential figures.

The Pyjama Hour: Launch Party Edition

Part of Things, Hawdon Chambers, Barwell Avenue, Barmera, 5345 Access via stairs (there is no ramp/disability access)
$30 per ticket - this event has limited capacity (30people MAXIMUM)

First things first - this really is a pyjama party and it starts at midnight.

Yes we really want you to wear pyjamas and we especially encourage warm snuggly dressing gowns. Go as glam or as comfy as you like. Think 90s slumber party dream.

Grab your Riverland gal, guy and non-binary friends in their 20s and 30s and grab your tickets here for our little midnight launch party!

We'll kick off at midnight Friday 9th August and the party will officially end just after 1:30am Saturday morning 10th August (so roughly 1.5hours).

Your ticket includes warm sustenance (snacks) and warm beverages and our slumber party vibe. There will be entertainment - not the nightclub kind (hah!) - and the rest of your ticket cost goes to supporting our first Thinker in Residence. Just so you know.

No tickets will be sold at the door. You MUST pre-purchase, this is for crowd control as Hawdon Chambers is intimately sized but also because you'll get some special pre-instructions! Oooooooooo mysterious. Seriously though, you must pre-book.

This is an 18+ alcohol free event. Because yeah, alcohol can be awesome but so is being sober and fabulous in the middle of the night.

Part of Things is being created by and for Riverlanders in their 20s and 30s. More about us here: https://partofthings.org/

We'll be officially launching and celebrating the first program - August to November 2019 - as well as officially launching our first SALA exhibition. All launch party ticket holders will have first dibs on any ticketed events and workshop spots in the Aug-Nov program. The rest of program will then go live Sunday 11th August to everyone else.

Hawdon Chambers was renovated late in 2017 but is still an old building and only accessible via steps from the street and a set of stairs internally (the space is on the second floor above the Soldiers Memorial Hall). Part of Things will be exploring ways of using technology and other ideas to rethink participation, collaboration and audience for anyone that is unable to access Hawdon Chambers physically. We welcome creative suggestions.

Pablo Picasso is considered one of the greatest and most prolific artists of all time. Many films have dealt with his later years – the art, the affairs and the wide circle of friends. But where did all this begin? What made Picasso in the first place? Young Picasso looks at his early years; the upbringing and the learning that lead to his extraordinary achievements. It visits three cities that played key roles, Malaga, Barcelona and Paris and explores their influence on the artist, focusing on his specific artworks from these early years.
