What's on in Brisbane this March

by Ashleigh Law


From Wicked the Musical to the Alliance Francaise French Film Festival and beyond, Brisbane is set to shine in March. Staggered throughout the heart of “Bris Vegas” is an assortment of tantalising cuisine and electrifying performances of both natural and staged beauty. Alluxia takes a sneak peek at what Brisbane has to show in the month of March.

Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz

Broadway’s blockbuster, Wicked the Musical took centre stage in early February, since then Brisbanite’s have been venturing down the Yellow Brick Road. Such a musical unveils the improbable friendship between the Wicked Witch and Glinda the Good before Dorothy and her red pumps came to “town”. Be captivated by the Emerald City at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre with tickets starting from $69.90.

Doughnut Time

Calling all sweet-tooths, it’s Doughnut Time! Such an establishment specialises in preservative free, hand-dipped delicacies bursting with flavour, salted caramel and maple bacon to be exact. This Doughnut heaven is owing to Damian Griffith’s commitment in harnessing the power of the modest doughnut. Alluxia would recommend sinking your teeth into the Griffith’s raspberries and cream doughnut.

Alliance Francaise French Film Festival

Parlez vous Francais Madame? The French Film Festival celebrates its 26th screening in 2015 with a superb collection of French contemporary films. The festival entices Francophiles to taste French culture, cuisine and cinema within the comfort of Brisbane. The centrepiece of the festival is Gemma Bovery, a tale of an English woman who escapes the emptiness of provincial life by indulging in passionate affairs. As the festival unfolds throughout March, be sure to take a peek at the schedule as the French make it difficult to choose one!

Gordita Bar & Restaurant

Ole! Gordita Bar & Restaurant ups the ante with their Grimaud duck breast and a wholesome selection of sangaria recipes. Turns out, Gordita is slang for an endearing and irresistible chubby girl who cannot refuse the temptation of food. It’s apparent that this award winning menu inspires the Gordita within all. To satisfy your urges, join Gordita for their Degustation Mondays to explore the tradition and flavour of Spanish cuisine at it’s finest.

Napoleon Perdis Everlasting Elegance Masterclass

Steal Mila Kunis’s smoky eye and Kim Kardashian’s contouring by joining Napoleon Perdis in a masterclass of all things beauty. The Everlasting Elegance Masterclass is an opportunity for mothers, daughters and friends alike to come together to gain some tips, tricks and insight into industry trends. Napoleon’s workshop includes a welcome gift pack and lifelong skills starting from $250 (redeemable on products).
