Vikings: Beyond the Legend
11 Nicholson St, Carlton
Melbourne Museum will be hosting the world’s biggest collection of Viking artifacts from March 23rd to August 26th. Over 450 pieces will be featured in the exhibit, some dating back to 700 AD. Fans of the much-loved TV series and old folk tales will be fascinated by the rich and fascinating life of the vikings.
For less than $28, this eye-opening exhibition will challenge your image of vikings as pillaging and plundering warriors with long beards and horned helmets. It’s a lot more than just that.

99A Carlisle St, St Kilda
For those who don’t know, Bongo’s Bingo is not for grannies, nor the faint-hearted. Described by some as “bingo on steroids”, this modern interpretation features rave intervals, dancing on tables, live music and partying like a crazy person.
Tickets are already sold out for April 5, but a new date has been added for the night after- April 6th. Before this new lot of tickets sells out, get a group together and head on down to St Kilda Hall for the wildest night of your bingo-playing lives.
Arbory Silent Comedy
1 Flinders Walk, Melbourne
If you thought watching people sing and dance at a silent disco was hilarious, just wait until you experience one of Arbory Bar & Eatery’s hilarious Silent Comedy nights. From March 28 – April 18, the Yarra-side bar will feature a fantastic line-up of comedians from Melbourne International Comedy Festival (such as Jimeoin, pictured above).
For $25 you get: a ticket, headphones and three sets from three comedians. Get ready to laugh out loud (but also silently) at this unique Melbourne event.
