Win tickets for frightening fun...

Roses are red,
But what makes you scream?
We bet you some tickets,
It’s Dementia 13!

Mix it up this Valentine’s Day; instead of the usual flowers and chocolate for your beloved, grab them tickets to a hair-raising horror experience! Francis Ford Coppola’s directorial debut Dementia 13 has had the soundtrack stripped back and is re-enacted live on stage in March. It features a full band, actors, and a Foley artist creating every creepy sound effect right in front of you. You’ll laugh, you’ll scream, you’ll hold each other oh-so-close.

To celebrate, we’re giving away a double pass to the show at Wrest Point. Just send us your best scary ‘Roses are Red’ poem to We’ll post the best on Facebook and choose a winner next Friday, 20 March!



In Creative Hobart in March big ideas connect. Ten Days gives you the opportunity to expand your festival experience when you visit Patrick Hall’s ‘Things I Once Knew’ at TMAG. Patrick’s work is not, and cannot be, confined to gallery spaces.

Thanks to the support of the City of Hobart and Greening Australia, you can also see Patrick’s fanciful and functional animals in Elizabeth Street Mall (while you are visiting I Think I Can), or the haunting gates he created for Beaumaris Zoo, or visit the Sustainability Learning Centre at Mt Nelson to behold his tactile ‘Tree’.

Creative Hobart is an initiative of the City of Hobart.

Roll up for family fun at the Spiegeltent

Come out and play! Ten Days has family entertainment covered at the amazing Spiegeltent, which returns in March 2015 to enliven Hobart’s waterfront.

Musician, composer and instrument maker extraordinaire Linsey Pollak goes Live and Loopy in a hilarious musical event that will delight all ages. He makes extraordinary music using everything but the kitchen sink.

Expect the unexpected, with world-renowned performers The Chipolatas and their acclaimed show Gentlemen of the Road. This charismatic trio combine juggling, music, clowning and a sprinkling of acrobatics in a must-see show that will captivate all ages.

Kaput features the larger-than-life buffoonery of Tom Flanagan in a brilliant family show that is full of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness. Be swept away in the mayhem as one man’s life is flipped upside-down in a highly skilled, hilariously funny and touching performance.

Make sure you don’t miss out on these super-special family shows at the Spiegeltent. Book your tickets now at


Blue Angel and the Wooden Boat Festival

You’re invited to the world première of Blue Angel, an extraordinary art experience presented by Big hART and Ten Days as part of the Tasmanian International Arts Festival in March 2015.

Visitors to the amazing MyState Australian Wooden Boat Festival may have been lucky enough to see painter Robert Hannaford aboard the Westward, immortalising seafarers in art. The paintings will adorn the walls of Hobart’s iconic Astor Hotel from March 24 to 29 as part of Blue Angel, an immersive site-specific event combining music, art and performance.

Big hART has sought seafarers from across the state, and cast them alongside Australia's best, including actor Kerry Armstrong and musician Mikelangelo. It will bring to life great stories of the sea, and give audiences a searing insight into the largely untold reality of the contemporary seafaring experience. Stay overnight or come for the evening.

Big hART, Australia’s leading arts and social change company, has been importing and exporting tall tales and true stories from port cities in this collaborative project, where art is the cargo and the heart is filled with the desire for "Fair Transport".

Head to the Ten Days website to book your Blue Angel Overnight Experience, or book for the concert only.
