Explore the East End
There are dozens of exciting Fringe time activations on right now, and with the busy East End streets closed down, there’s never been a better time to explore the local area. Some of our favourites include the Familiar pop-up outside Hellbound Wine Bar, headed up by Africola Canteen’s Joel Tisato; the Grey Goose and Gofalafull stall at Distill; and the NOLA Laneway series. Or, head to gluttony to the Comida pop-up restaurant, where you can enjoy lakeside scenes and wood-fired treats.
