Swell is back again, and so is one of my fave Goldie events, In The Bin.
Swell is 2 weeks of art and sculpture laid out on Currumbin beach for everyone to enjoy. We go every year and you can see some of our pictures here and here or check out the Website here.
Then there's the 'In the Bin' a short film festival. A week of short films shown in an beautiful outdoor setting for all to enjoy. We took the kids on Saturday night and watched films till very late at night. The kids love it even though the films aren't for them. They just love being able to run around at night , playing when they would normally be in bed. It was just cold enough to enjoy the hot curry i had made for us for dinner, and to cuddle up under the blankets together. If you haven't been to an 'In the Bin' before i would definitely reccommend checking it out. All you really need is something to sit on, even just a blanket will do, as they have food, coffee, sweets, movies, all set in a gorgeous outdoor setting. Although some people go crazy, carring couches and lounge chairs in with them! They run films all week, and i think Monday night they have films for kids too. It's only $5 per person and kids under 12 are free. Defenitley a must if you live on the Gold Coast.
