The clear skies and balmy evenings of summer can only mean one thing… Somerville has opened its doors!
30 lucky Elites were shown VIP treatment underneath the pines at Somerville last night. Yelpers were greeted by the lovely Magdalena from Perth Festival with a bottle of Yalumba Wine.
Once inside Yelpers got to plonk themselves down in specially reserved deckchairs for the evening. Charlie’s Pizza were slinging incredible wood-fired pizzas into the hands of hungry Elites. Using only fresh ingredients, it was hard to pick a favourite, but the prosciutto and truffle oil was probably the biggest hit.
On screen: the premiere of 20 Feet From Stardom, a fascinating documentary The New York Times describes as seeking ‘to rewrite the history of pop music’. Boasting intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and others, the film looked at the fascinating personal stories of the artists who spent their careers in the shadows of superstars.
I know some Yelpers have already booked tickets today to see more of Somerville’s 2013-2014 program, with films direct from international festivals, on first release and exclusive to the Perth Festival. Who can blame them? After all, there can’t be a better way to spend a summer evening.
A massive thank you to Magdalena and everyone at Somerville, Perth Festival for organising such a magnificent night under the stars at the gorgeous picture garden – Somerville
