Silvers Grand Magic Circus As seen on Channel 9 in Celebrity Circus, Silvers Grand Magic Circus is a Melbourne tradition, it's on in Frankston this week..

Established in 1976, Silvers Circus has grown from strength to strength. In 1987 a new concept was developed and Silvers Grand Magic Circus was born. A procenium arch stage larger than many theatres was placed behind the sawdust ring and the inside of the bigtop was transformed into something the world had never seen before.

Varekai - Cirque du Soleil Varekai - Cirque du Soleil Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world-a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai.

The word varekai means "wherever"in the Romany language of the gypsies the universal wanderers. This production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to the infinite passion of those whose quest takes them along the path that leads to Varekai.

April 23 through to May 20, 2007

The Giant Sky Wheel will be open at Federation Square. The panoramic views of the city are breathtaking and with the lights illuminating the skyline at night there is no better way to spend your day or evening than on top of the Giant Sky Wheel.

Bar AltitudeThis Saturday at Bar Altitude is Dirty Disco a night geared to a cheeky-but- friendly, up-for-it crowd, combining sexy, dirty house music in an intimate & comfortable environment.

It's a Saturday night party that will enforce a strict but fair membership base aimed at attracting a large female clientele who'll be provided with a safe and fun place to be each and every week.

Dirty Disco is what Our city's scene has been missing! A place where you can go to express yourself without the hassles or worries you might be subjected to at other venues. Clubbing is, and always has been, about escapism, freedom and enjoyment. Going out in Melbourne has been getting too serious over the past few years; Dirty Disco is all about putting the FUN back in to going out again!
