Upper Kedron: Events

Jan Power's Farmers Markets Mitchelton


Almost 30 years ago an idea was born that was to change Brisbane. Foodie, commentator and city doyenne Jan Power decided to forge the first Farmers Markets, putting pay to her passion for fresh produce, and her commitment supporting farmers and their livelihoods.

The first Jan Powers Farmers Markets came to colourful and loud life at the Brisbane Powerhouse site; and today, almost a full generation later, Brisbane is a city indelibly inked with love for Farmers Markets.

Jan singularly pushed City regulations again and again to sow the seed of Farmers Markets, and educate Brisbane of the provenance of their food. Now, there is a Jan Powers Farmers Markets every single Saturday somewhere in Brisbane, a market on Sundays in Mitchelton, and a weekly City Markets in Reddacliff Place that attracts some 5,000 city workers and residents!

Stephen Cummings National Tour Coming To Brisbane


Stephen Cummings - pop pioneer and founding member of legendary The Sports - treats you to a rare appearance, playing his first national shows for 2016.

Brimming with 40 years of storyteller's yarns about his musical past, Stephen roots through his vast back catalogue accompanied by master guitarist Shane O'Mara to perform a set of songs spanning all stages of his incredible year career. The largely acoustic setting suits both his recent material and his pop hits of the 80s and 90s.

The singer is touring with a new CD, King Of The Rainy Country, a compilation of slow songs available at Cummings shows only. The album reveals this illustrious, passionate craftsman joyfully at ease with himself and his songs.

Caustic commitment and misunderstanding now fuel Stephen's work. He's published an autobiography, written two novels, dozens of book reviews and had a feature documentary made on his life. A final album, Great Men in Small Rooms is being recorded and will be available early 2017.
