If you’re looking for something new to do this summer, there are plenty of exciting events coming up in the Inner West. Here’s a rundown of some that might pique your interest.

Get moving

If you’re after a little fun exercise, there are a couple of events coming up in February that might just interest you.

Club De Tango: La Milonga

Glebe Town Hall comes alive with the sounds of Buenos Aires every first and third Friday of the month through until December. The La Milonga social dance has been running since 1999 and is the perfect spot to get your dancing shoes on and enjoy some Latin music.

Classes are taught for beginners right through to advanced dancers. You can go along and learn to dance or just sit back and watch the action.

Cycling in the city course

For some outdoor exercise, why not join the Cycling in the city course at the Sydney Park Cycling Centre in Alexandria?  It’s a course designed for you to learn simple positioning techniques in traffic, bicycle control skills, and route planning to make cycling from A to B more enjoyable.

You can join the action on Sunday 12 February from 9 am. Remember to bring your bike and helmet.

Fun festivals and music

During February, the Inner West comes alive with a variety of exciting festivals and music events.

You can even pot up a plant and take it home to grow in your own garden.

Indulge your inner environmental warrior

Seeing the results of climate change around the world should make every one of us more environmentally friendly. Here are a couple of events that might help.

Clean Up Australia Day

This year, Clean Up Australia Day will be held on Sunday 5 March from 9 am. This is a perfect opportunity to get involved in a local community event to help clean up our shorelines and other green spaces. Just pop your postcode into the search bar to find an event close to you.

Recycle It Saturday

If you’ve had a clean-out after Christmas, you can take your unwanted goods to the Alexandra Canal Depot in Alexandria on Saturday 18 February for their Recycle It Saturday event. Be sure to take some identification with you that has your address on it. And, the best part is that it’s a drive-through event where you don’t even have to get out of your car.
