LITERATURE and music are part of entertainment fare for customers as Clarkson’s main shopping centre.
A group of local parents and their children enjoyed an interactive reading of three books about friendship recently as part of Ocean Keys Shopping Centre’s monthly story time and craft event.
Led by the librarians from Clarkson Library, the free event aims to engage children with books and foster an interest in reading, while also giving parents an opportunity to make friends.
The ‘Tiny tots storytime and craft’ sessions take place in the food court on the first Monday of each month.
Due to the Easter break, the next one will be on April 9 from 10.30am to 11.30am.The shopping centre’s Community Showcase has been giving young musicians opportunities to share their musical talents with an audience in recent weeks.
Last Thursday, Butler teen Izzi Green graced the stage to perform a range of songs from a variety of genres while families enjoyed the atmosphere and children played in the free games zone.
The showcase runs until May 31, with performances by different emerging artists every Thursday night between 4.30pm and 7.30pm.
Local budding musicians wanting to take part can contact the centre by calling 9407 2400 or emailing email@example.com.
