Monty Pythons SPAMALOT

16 June 2017 to 1 July 2017

Spamalot is the Monty Python musical that has been “lovingly ripped off” from the acclaimed 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. … The plot of Spamalot is almost exactly the same as the Holy Grail; King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail.

The A’dale and Beyond by Jackie Gorring

Also at the Swan Hill regional Gallery is the A’Dale and Beyond.

Jackie Gorring’s practice draws on two distinct influences. The comings and goings of life in the rural district of Allendale, her home, affectionately referred to by Gorring as A’dale, and the travels “beyond”, throughout Australia and internationally.
