The Swan Festival of Lights is on again this year at Langley Park from the 22 to 26 October 2014 to celebrate Deepavali (Diwali) in Perth.
Wednesday 22 October 2014 - the day that the festival kicks off also happens to fall on the auspicious day of Deepavali – a special day when people from around the world celebrate the ancient Hindu festival of light triumphing darkness. Wishing all the local people who celebrate this festival in Perth a happy Deepavali.

The Lake’s Apprentice is a book about nature that explores Lake Yalgorup, a chain of lakes between Mandurah and Bunbury in Western Australia as seen through the eyes of the author Annamaria Weldon.
Weldon explores the lakes through a set of keen eyes, and as the reader it is lovely to see her exuberance around such a unique landscape as told through her compilation of essays, poems, photography and notes.
As she visits the lake, she observes a myriad of things, each time a little different, another observation, another encounter with nature.
The Little Death now showing at Luna Leederville and Luna SX in Freo is a cracker of a comedy about the sex lives of a cross section of Australian couples. Each of the couples has their own love and sex issues and as the movie unfolds we get a glimpse into their lives and the state of affairs of their relationships.
Director Josh Lawson takes us on a hilarious adventure as we meet Maureen as played by our own Perth born actress Lisa McClune, Kate Box as Rowena from the tv series Rake, along with many other familiar Australian actors and actresses.
Black Swan State Theatre Company brings to Perth audiences Laughter on the 23rd Floor.
The play is set in the writers room for the Max Prince Show, located on the 23rd floor of New York's Rockefeller Plaza, way back in 1953.
The looming shadow of McCarthyism and the Hollywood blacklist bring an extra layer of dramatic tension to Max's struggles with his TV network bosses, who want to make cutbacks and dumb down the show for the masses.
They say that great tragedy makes for great comedy, and nothing is a better example of this than Laughter on the 23rd Floor.
To describe White Rabbit, Red Rabbit as a unique experience would be an understatement. More than just a play; it is a theatrical experiment by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour. Soleimanpour was barred from leaving his country because he refused to take part in compulsory national service, and so his mysterious script travels the world in his place. Every night, Soleimanpour’s play is performed by a different actor, who is not given the script until they step onto the stage.
