Enlighten Tickets on Sale



Tickets are now on sale for Canberra’s exciting new event, ENLIGHTEN: See Canberra in a whole new light, which premiers in March 2011.
“I encourage people to buy their tickets early to avoid missing out on what promises to be an exciting event that will showcase the nation’s capital in a whole new light and, in conjunction with the Canberra Festival, enhance Canberra’s vibrancy during autumn by creating a ‘city in festival’,” Australian Capital Tourism General Manager, Simonne Shepherd said.

“Held over four nights in March, ENLIGHTEN will light up Canberra’s autumn nights with spectacular entertainment, amazing architectural lighting, unique after-dark experiences at national attractions and a vibrant event hub on the stunning foreshore of Lake Burley Griffin.

“Gather your friends and head to the event hub where you can see exclusive performances by music legends George Benson (Friday 11 March) and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (Saturday 19 March). Charismatic crooner, Chris Isaak, will take time out of his national tour to perform on Friday 18 March and a major act for Saturday 12 March will be announced in January 2011.

“See the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House and the Parliament House in a new light when they open their doors after dark with special one-off activities and spectacularly lit facades.”

Highlights include: Live at the Sculpture Garden, aand entertainment event at the National Gallery of Australia plus late night viewing of the Ballet Russes: the art of costume exhibition; a tour of Spies, Leaks and Scandals exhibition at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House uncovering some of the stories that made Australia; a behind the scenes tour of the Parliamentary art collection and architecture of Parliament House followed by a banquet and live entertainment on Queens Terrace.
