Luna 1878, will be unveiled on August 8. Cocooned within the historic sheds of Queen Victoria Market, the new night market event will be a sensory overload featuring some of Melbourne’s best independent performers, designers, artists, chefs, winemakers and foodies.

To be held on Wednesday’s in August, Luna 1878 is set to become a new winter ritual, where Melburnians can embrace some of the city’s craftiest talent coming together for the first time at the iconic ‘Vic Market’.

Be entranced by performance, where a whimsical sense of fun awaits. And, yes, it will be cosy. There will heaters to gather around, mulled wine and exotic yet hearty food.

We’ve missed the first two Wednesdays, but for the rest of the month the entertainment program is reported as:
Wednesday 22 August: Soul and New Orleans theme
Wednesday 29 August: Jazz, Swing theme

I don’t know who will be providing the Soul and New Orleans flavour on 22 August, but the jazz entertainment on 29 August will be the preserve of that exciting band Shirazz!!

So leave your shopping until late on the next two Wednesdays and join the crowds defying winter’s miseries with food, drink and music – what could be nicer, what could be better for you!!!!
