The only way to find out what's behind the red curtain concealing the Village Bizarre's famed Cabinet of Curiosities is to join the queue and see for yourself. With its constantly-changing contents kept secret until the event, we can only tell you that they're bound to vary from strange to supernatural to seductive to side-splittingly funny. We also know that its mysteries are 'small but perfectly formed' and 'not human'. Located in Foundation Park, which is entered via Cleland Bond, the Cabinet will be spilling its secrets every Friday during the Bizarre, between 6.30pm and 10pm.
The Rocks' shadowy lane ways will also be hosting an array of unexpected events and quirky surprises. A wander down Greenway Lane will carry you into a magical, theatrical micro-universe. On November 1 and December 20, you're likely to find yourself face-to-face with the charming Magician Neo and his mesmerising sleight-of-hand, or The Great Gandini, presenting his medical marvels. On November 8 and 29, look out for the Rhinestone Cowgirl - 'Veteran Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, ex-pat Aussie and self-made D-grade celebrity'. Other evenings will see Convict Cabaret, a sur-reality show hosted by For Eva After, performances by a heart-broken Spanish diva, some tricky untangling with escape artist 'The Great Heidini', and The Cave of Wonders.
