Whether you’re avoiding the cold or keen to get out and about, Wagga has something for you this weekend.

Keep toasty all weekend with flicks at Forum 6, an exhibition on renowned Aussie scientists and artists the Scott Sisters or catch Freeroam Theatre’s evocative tale of love, lust and mystery Speaking in Tongues.

For Friday only, jazz lovers can spend the night with sounds from the Hilary Geddes Quartet.

Opening Saturday is an immersive interactive arts exhibition Dystopian Universe or you have your pick of two festivals – one for foodies and the other for music lovers, though both with definite crossover.

Wind down your Sunday afternoon with Sugar & Spice and everything nice by Lake Centenary or live music in Junee.
