Do you hate clowns? If so, you should probably move on to see what’s happening elsewhere. However, if the thought of watching ‘IT: Chapter Two’ in a cinema full of people dressed as clowns gets your blood pumping this one is for you. The New Farm cinema is hosting this nightmare-fuel event to celebrate the release of the long-awaited film. However, to see the movie you also have to participate. That’s right, grab your biggest shoes and your most colourful wig because you’ll be channelling your inner Pennywise. The event will kick off at 6 with some magic tricks and activities followed by the screening at 7 pm. Book your tickets here.
Author of ‘The Time We Have Taken’ and ‘A New England Affair’, Steven Carroll is visiting the New Farm library to discuss the launch of his new book ‘The Year of the Beast’. His visit is part of the larger Brisbane Writer’s Festival, so make sure to check out which authors will be popping up where around Brisbane this month! Meeting Steven Carroll is free, however, booking is essential. Grab tickets here.

Future Minimalists: Decluttering and Storage Workshop
Spring is here and along with it that nagging feeling that you should go through everything you own and throw it all to the wind. If the task of going through your stuff is a tad daunting and overwhelming, don’t worry about it. H & H have got you.
We’re hosting a free decluttering workshop on the 18th of September! Decluttering queen Karen Hutton has condensed her lifetime of experience into a few top tips to help simplify the process. After she’s motivated you to cull your junk, the wonderful people at Howard’s Storage World Fortitude Valley will be giving us their favourite solutions to storage. Prepare to hear some pretty creative ways to organise your house!
Kicking off at Howard’s Storage World at 3pm, the event will be catered with an afternoon tea and each guest will receive a little gift bag to take home. We can’t wait to see you there!
We’ve been customers at Sun & Earth for a while now, and we are obsessed with the healthy options they have in store! We swear by the breakfast smoothies. They give you the kick you need to start the day and they’re a great change from a morning coffee.
Sun & Earth also stock an extensive range of sustainable, eco-friendly alternatives to everyday items. Metal straws, beeswax wraps, whole-foods containers, keep cups (for when you’d rather a coffee than a breakfast smoothie!); they seem to have an option for everything.
