Live it up with Cockburn Live!

Celebrate with us as Cockburn Central continues to come alive, cementing its position as the capital of Perth’s southern metropolitan region.
Cockburn Central is the heart of Perth’s southern metro area, and the City invites you to celebrate its evolution from a stop on the train line to sought-after capital of family-friendly fun, by exploring a new edgy festival of frivolity.
Cockburn Live is the City’s newest entertainment offering coming to you this November at Pop-up Park in Cockburn Central.

Audience members of all ages can expect a fringe-flavoured experience in an intimate spiegeltent, featuring a range of diverse, boundary-pushing theatrical acts for people of all ages, from children to adults.
Called Ukiyo, the 200-seat spiegeltent is designed to evoke the modern-day practice of Tokyo’s urban community which seeks pleasure and peace as an essential respite from the busyness of urban life. 
The 200-seat pop-up venue is decorated with distinctive Japanese artwork inspired by Ukiyo, which means ‘The Floating World’, or a place where people can freely enjoy theatre, music and dance.
From top-notch comedy, to rousing live music, daring burlesque, cutting edge acrobatics and aerial skillduggery, and feel-good children’s entertainment, Cockburn Live will have you looking alive as we prepare for a busy summer event season in the City of Cockburn.
Mayor Logan Howlett said the City was well-known for its wide variety of popular, accessible community events and Cockburn Live was an exciting addition to the program for 2022.
“People are realising that Cockburn really is the best place to be,” Mayor Howlett said.
“The City is keen to provide another fun-filled entertainment option in Cockburn Central to celebrate our diverse community, support local business and build on the momentum and sense of excitement in this growing location.
“Cockburn Central is now a popular destination in its own right. Its easily accessible on the train line boasting major shopping and entertainment options, plus a variety of peak services like Success Library, Cockburn Integrated Health and Cockburn Youth Centre, and a variety of housing options for the growing residential community.
“These attractions are only set to grow in coming years with the $1b Cockburn Gateway expansion and the $100m Aventuur wave park, not to mention the award-winning Cockburn ARC and Dockers HQ which will undergo a $12m expansion over the next two years.”
Some of Cockburn Live’s feature acts include kid’s game show Splat!, Dinosaur Time Machine and Mr Snotbottom’s Silly Stinky Show, and for the adults The Wine Bluffs, Werk It!, legendary comedy hypnotist Matt Hale, Voila Variete Cabaret and more guaranteed to entertain and inspire.
Cockburn Live will be held at Pop-up Park on the corner of Linkage Avenue and Signal Terrace, Cockburn Central from 5-13 November.
The show and program are presented by Bamboozled Productions, well known for producing and staging shows Australia-wide, including many that have appeared in past Adelaide Fringe festivals.
