What could be better than sunshine, the beautiful setting of The Briars homestead, the very best local food and drink, plus awesome fun stuff for the kids for a family day out?
World-class Blues music, that’s what!
Back for a fantastic fifth year, Blues at The Briars in Mount Martha on Saturday, February 25, will be the biggest and best to date with a jaw-dropping, toe-tapping line-up.
Watch out for Owen Campbell, who captured the nation’s heart with his run on Australia’s Got Talent and JJ Rome featuring guests Chris Wilson and Shannon Bourne (who was raised in Harlem before finding success and a loyal following here in Melbourne).
Other eye-catching artists combine to make this the Mornington Peninsula’s premier Blues event (think home-grown The Teskey Brothers, 19 Twenty, Ben Waters Boogie Piano, Gail Page and Steve Boyd's Rum Reverie).
Blues at The Briars is not just for the true Blues aficionado. This is a genuinely family friendly day out and entry is free for all children under 14. There’s a dedicated staffed kids’ area with storytelling tepee, local craft activities and bouncing castle, which is great for mums and dads enjoying the music, a favourite tipple and gourmet food stalls.
For those wishing to revel in the music a little longer, the After Party bar is open until midnight.
VIP tickets are excellent value. $162 includes a two-course lunch and beverage package served at the table in a private marquee area with an enviable view of the stage. A table of 10 VIPs package is available at $1500. Tickets start at $65 ($52 concession with ID) and a family ticket (two adults plus two teenagers) costs $150.
The event opens at 11am. Bar opens midday.
