King Steals Leeuwin Show

Looking relaxed and confident, Carole King was the undoubted queen at the 29th Leeuwin Concert Series last Saturday and Sunday, with most of the listeners up on their feet during Saturday’s show. She played some of her most famous songs from a lifetime of incredibly successful performing and songwriting, mesmerising the listeners especially with You’ve Got a Friend, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow and I Feel the Earth Move Under My Feet.

Drift’s Margs Premiere

Surfing movie “Drift” will premiere at Caves House in Yallingup on Thursday, March 21st to coincide with the Margaret River Pro. The movie, some of which was shot in Margaret River and featured local surfers and extras, will be screened for over 1000 people in a red carpet event in the gardens of Caves House.
