Located right at the entrance of the Castlemaine Vintage Bazaar, the Elvis themed pop-up stall will feature Hawaiian shirts, vintage threads, tiki bar paraphernalia, Elvis books, vinyl and cassettes  – even the elusive blue suede shoes. Then meander among the 140+ other stalls to discover something you didn’t know you were looking for.

The Castlemaine Vintage Bazaar is renowned for playing great tunes while you browse. Imagine hearing The King on-demand: a soundtrack of Elvis songs while you peruse! All at your say-so. Just say the word to the manager on duty when you arrive and we’ll flick the switch to a playlist that will leave you All Shook Up.

Castlemaine Pubsing – tribute to The King

Saturday 4th June – 7.30pm

Come along to the Shedshaker Brewing Co. Taproom and learn a well-known Elvis song in three parts, then belt it out in a big friendly group over a beer and a laugh.

PubSing Castlemaine is not a traditional choir. There are no rehearsals, no need to join anything, and no singing experience necessary.

PubSing is a stand-alone event where participants learn a song in three parts over 90 mins then perform it together at the end of the event.

The song will be easy to learn, and taught by ear. Lyrics, and harmony parts, will be projected on a big screen for all to see!

This is a ticketed event.
