The British & Irish Lions Rugby Team Tour Australia in 2013

For rugby fans all over the nation, June and July 2013 are two of the most exciting months to occur during the last 12 years. The British and Irish Lions Rugby Team will tour Australia for nine incredible matches in six different cities. This uncommon event only takes place in Australia once every 12 years, so anyone who’s a lover of rugby should make a point not to miss this dynamic occurrence.

The six-week Australian tour, where the British and Irish Lions will take on the five Australian Super 15 Rugby teams, has set dates in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Canberra, and Newcastle, and they include 3 test matches along with the series final on 6 July.

How to Fight Like a Lion

Since 1888, the British and Irish Lions rugby team has travelled across the world to play matches against elite international competitors. These gifted and determined players will usually only see one Australian tour during their career, so the two-month event is an honour and opportunity for each one to show off their superior rugby skills.

To be selected for the British and Irish Lions rugby team is the highest privilege for any rugby player from Ireland, England, Scotland or Wales.

Because the Lions only tour once every four years, and the location rotates between Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand, this year’s rugby tour is considered the biggest event in rugby to hit Australia since the 2003 Rugby World Cup.

Battling the “Sea of Red”

Tickets for the 125th Anniversary Tour are on sale now, and rugby fans are encouraged to grab them while they’re still available. But, in case you can’t make it to a match in person, you can catch the competition on TV at a local pub, or in your home (as long as you have access to the network that’s showing the games, Foxtel).

With a rugby event this big, you might even want to make your own event out of it by hosting a viewing party or an after-party. Print up some handy invitations, send them out to all your fellow rugby fans, and invite them to join you in celebrating the festivities of this once-every-twelve-year competition.

Just remember to keep it friendly and fabulous. Not only are there a lot of Australian fans out there, but many British and Irish Lions fans are likely to make the journey to cheer their team on as well.

The Divine Divas Show Hits Melbourne May 2013

If you’re into live events that include Vegas-style portrayals of the biggest superstars on the planet, this is one show you won’t want to miss! The incredible Divine Divas show is a delightfully decadent two hour tribute performance that will feature extravagant portrayals of twenty world-famous superstars, like Cher, Madonna, Liza, Beyonce, Pink, Tina, Dolly, Kylie, and many more.

This flamboyant tribute to our favorite divas is always evolving, and was started by Warren Gooch, the talented founding cast member, and styled by the brilliant modern choreographer, Leigh Kempster.

Truly a Spectacular Event

This captivating event will take place on 18 May at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne. Fun for the whole family, this performance is sure to amaze with all the glamour and glitz of a Vegas-inspired extravaganza.

With very high heels and a whole lot of class, Divine Divas will feature sixteen of the most exceptional female impersonators in jaw-dropping transformations that include donning sensational pieces from an authentically reproduced wardrobe valued at more than $200,000.

More than 60,000 Australians and New Zealanders have had the pleasure of enjoying this fabulous event first hand.

Be sure to get your tickets soon so you don’t miss out on all the incredible fun!

How to Get Inspired

Whether or not you can afford to make it to The Palms for this decedent event, you need not despair. Take the idea for a tribute show and run with it. Get a group of friends together, decide on the kind of famous stars you’d like to portray, and hit up the second hand stores for your costumes.

If you want to really get into it, print up some low cost, high quality event tickets, and raise money for a good cause, like a local charity or a non-profit organisation you support.

Promoting your event well is a good start. Start by developing a plan of action. Will you send out emails? Print flyers? Mail personalized invitations? All of these ideas will work, and many times they work best when done in tandem.

Once you’ve promoted your glamourous event, decide on a ticket price that’s low enough to appeal to the masses, but high enough so you can make your money back and have a little something extra.

You can either donate it, or keep it for yourself to use for your next event.

How to Throw a Great Halloween Party

While Halloween has been considered an American holiday in the past, in more recent times, Halloween has been gaining steam in Australia, with many children across the country planning to go trick-or-treating, families carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns, and Halloween events popping up all over the place.

From creepy haunted houses to the incredible Magique Halloween Circus, events of all kinds have been organised for Halloween 2012, promising a spooky good time for all who attend.

But if you’d rather organise your own freaky-themed party to celebrate All Saints’ Day, you’re in luck. Here, we’ve got an itemised list of everything we think you’ll need to plan a spooktacular party all on your own.

What You Need to Host a Great Halloween Party

  1. Costumes – Not only will you need a costume yourself, you’ll also need a few extra for anyone who forgets to dress up. If you have back up, no one at your party will feel left out because they didn’t come dressed to impress. Have a few extra masks on hand that are easy to slip on.
  2. Tricks – To get the party started and keep it flowing, gather your guests together for some freaky Halloween games. These games are a fun way to break the ice or get over any lull that your spooky event may encounter.
  3. Treats – One word: Lollies. If you offer an array of colors, there should be something to keep everyone happy. And if you’re hosting a party in your own home, you’ll want to be ready for the trick-or-treaters who come by too.
  4. Invitations – Get a good turnout for your Halloween party by sending personalised invitations to everyone on your guest list. You can find some freakishly fun Halloween themed Invitations that will remind your guests exactly where to be and what time the party starts.
  5. Event Tickets – Make your party into an EVENT by printing Event Tickets with a haunted Halloween image on them. Especially if you’re in the run to supply your partiers with food and drinks, you’ll want to charge an appropriate amount that recoups the cost so you can break even.

Keep it simple, and keep it scary. You don’t need to go all out to throw a great Halloween party. With a bit of planning and organisation, you can host such a horror-bly good party that your guests will be begging for you to throw one again next year.

Every Day It’s Getting Closer

by admin on December 18, 2010

Christmas is coming!

As a child, you anticipated the parties and presents. As an adult, you may find yourself overwhelmed with the details. Particularly if you’re selling tickets to a Christmas party, New Year’s celebration, or other seasonal event, you’re so busy talking to caterers, musicians, and professional Santas that actually selling those tickets takes a back seat to planning.

Yet, you must sell those Event Tickets if you hope to have a party. Here are some simply steps you can take to help generate more interest in your event and sell more tickets.

  • Print and mail Invitations (it’s not too late!).
  • Create an event page on Facebook. Ask guests to RSVP online.
  • Print and hang Flyers and Posters where potential guests may congregate/
  • Create a logo for the event, have it printed on Stickers, and distribute them everywhere.
  • Leak some of the exciting details to generate extra buzz for word-of-mouth advertising.
  • Using chalk, leave intriguing messages on sidewalks and walls.
  • Create a short video advertising your event. Post it online and share the link.

Creating a page with a unique URL dedicated just to your event helps you help your guests. It’s easy for you to share that link, and, as long as you include all the important details on your page, people will be able to learn everything they need to know about your party in one place.

Come, all ye faithful!

by admin on November 22, 2010

Are you planning any big events in December? If so, it’s time to start printing event Invitations: the Christmas season is almost upon us once again! Small family celebrations, large formal galas, and everything in between can benefit from a smart Invitation. Casual or sophisticated, a printed Invitation makes a greater impression than word of mouth or email.

When your guests receive their Invitations, they’ll have a concrete reminder of your event, and all the information at their fingertips: names, dates, times, locations.

Seasonal parties can truly start to add up. Don’t let your details become lost in a flood of festivities, forgotten as guests try to juggle numerous activities. Getting the information out early helps ensure that your celebration is marked on calendars and anticipated in advance! The physical aspect of the Invitation allows it to be hung up where recipients cannot help but notice it and continue to think about your event.

Once you know the details for your event, you can start printing event Invitations!

Grassroots Organisation

by admin on June 23, 2010

Whether your group has millions of supporters around the world or consists solely of you and your amazing html skills, your events, your ticket sales, and your success can benefit from the help of local activists who share your concern. Mobilisation of a grassroots surge can help you create events of greater interest to the public, sell more event tickets, and continue doing your work around the clock, even when you can’t personally stick around to supervise.

Step 1: Find your base.

Call a meeting. Advertise your intention in every place you imagine your supporters may be waiting for you. That will include local media outlets such as television, radio, magazines, and newspapers. You will also want to hang flyers and posters in relevant shops and public places, such as the library. And of course, you need a strong web presence: a website, along with a blog. Leave messages on others’ forums, and send email blasts if you can obtain useful mailing lists. Invitations sent via snail mail can also be effective, if you have a good list of addresses.

Step 2: Hear them out.

Once you’ve gathered local activists to your meeting, state your intentions and open the floor for discussion and suggestions. This is the heart of grassroots organisation. Your goal is to raise money for and awareness of your cause. Allow interested participants to take charge. If, for instance, you wish to raise $1000 for cancer research, introduce yourself, explain why you are interested, and ask people what sort of fundraiser they would like to support.

Step 3: Activate.

Having settled upon an event, you can begin planning. Let your grassroots army do the heavy lifting, and support them as much as you can. Be sure to involve local businesses and personalities as much as possible. This would include hiring caterers from your town, using local venues, asking local bands to play or local celebrities to speak. Your grassroots movement is much more likely to identify with your efforts if they can see its local appeal.

Step 4: Sell that event.

Once planned, everyone can start selling event tickets. If you’ve made an effort to create a truly homegrown event, you’ll sell more tickets. Even those who aren’t invested in your charity will want to participate in a big community event. Print your own event tickets online to save money, then let your volunteers sell tickets to friends, family, neighbors, and strangers. Ask local businesses if they would be willing to sell tickets through their shops. You can also sell tickets online, through your own website, or through a site like TicketRiver.com.

Step 5: Don’t lose your momentum.

If you’ve carried off one big event, keep that grassroots army in motion. Let them keep planning and executing the events they want to see! If your organisation works from the ground up, you can create a vibrant movement, accomplish your goals, and bring people together for a good cause.

Your supporters are out there, waiting for you to engage them. Go find them!

The Long Weekend

by admin on June 8, 2010

God Save the Queen!

And God save our beloved Australian tradition of the Long Weekend! We’ve got a marvellous one coming up, and if you haven’t planned your tribute to the Queen yet, it’s not too late. All across the continent, your friends and families are scheduling barbecues, film festivals, musical events, and mini-vacation getaways in accommodating hotels near big cities, beautiful beaches, or splendid outdoor opportunities.

Tickets are selling fast for events like We Love Sounds, an electronica festival in Adelaide, The Grantville Pirate Festival in Gippsland, and Mr. McGee and the Biting Flea, a children’s storytelling event in Brisbane. Not your cup of tea? Keep searching for some proper June entertainment, or start planning your own event.

How about a Block Party? For urban, suburban, and exurban living, the Block Party is an ideal event for those who love their neighbors, as well as those who don’t know anything about their neighbors and realize that they probably should. Check with the city to pull permits if you want to close off your street to motorized traffic and start knocking on doors. Who can loan some powerful speakers and play DJ? Who can roll out a grill and start barbecuing? Who will bake desserts? You can sell tickets if you want to make your money back, or earn a little something for local projects, like planting trees and flowers in public spaces.

Printing out Posters, Flyers, and Invitations will help increase attendance at the event. Hang them in local shops, on telephone poles, in bus shelters. Remember that this is a friendly, neighborly event. The more you talk to your neighbors and inspire a sense of anticipation, the more likely they’ll be to attend your party.

Or, there’s always the tried and true staycation. Buy yourself a case of beer and download those movies you’ve been meaning to watch. Celebrate the Queen’s birthday in whatever way is festive to you!
