Visit www.winnipegfringe.com/ for show times and tickets.

Oh, and if you don’t think it matters to them that you will be in the audience, here’s an email from performer Penny Ashton – “Well hello, here I am googling myself like an egomaniac and your Southern Yarn pops up! How have I never seen you guys before, lol. This will be my 7th Winnipeg Fringe, and the lone Kiwi flying the flag this year I think indeed. Just thought I’d say thanks a lot for the mention, I hope to get some Kiwis along to the show. Ka Kite, Penny.”

Of course she also means Aussies  … 🙂 … so be sure to say kia ora and g’day when you go!

Passport Renewals and Alumni Event 2017

April 2017 will welcome representatives of the Australian High Commission to Winnipeg for passport interviews and an alumni networking event.

This is a wonderful opportunity for Australians in Manitoba to renew your passport and address any notarial issues in Winnipeg without incurring the cost of travelling to Ottawa, Toronto or Vancouver.

You do need to book an appointment online for a passport interview on Friday April 28, and to RSVP for the alumni event as soon as possible. All details available by clicking on the poster.
