This day is Europe Day which is the annual celebration day for the European Union.

This day is celebrated across Australia as Mother's Day. The tradition of giving gifts on Mother's Day in Australia grew up in the 1920s after the practice had arisen in the USA several decades earlier. In Australia, Mother's Day has become a common occasion for family re-unions - second only to Christmas as a popular date for such an occurrence. It is also a popular practice to wear a white flower in the lapel on this day - particularly a chrysantheMUM.

On this day in 1901 the first parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia opened at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne.
On this day in 1927 the Australian Parliament first convened at its new location in Canberra.

HAMILTON is the story of America then, told by America now. A record-breaking masterpiece that has “transformed theatre and the way we think about history.” – The New York Times

Featuring a score that blends hip-hop, jazz, R&B and Broadway, HAMILTON has taken the story of American founding father Alexander Hamilton and created a revolutionary moment in theatre – a musical that has had a profound impact on culture, politics and education.

With book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and musical supervision and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, HAMILTON is based on Ron Chernow’s acclaimed biography.

Hailed by critics as “A reinvention of the musical” – Chicago Tribune and “A singular work of brilliance.” ” – Rolling Stone, HAMILTON has gone from theatrical rebel to cultural phenomenon.

Markets in Sydney

Sunday 9th May 2021

Rocks Market

A market with over 150 stalls situated in the middle of George Street in The Rocks. Although this is an outdoor market the distinctive sails provide protection from the weather. White Hat enjoys having a meal from a local pub while sitting outside within spitting distance (not that we would do that of course) of the stalls. The emphasis of the market is on Australian memorabilia and gifts.

Sydney’s Paddys Markets Haymarket

This is Sydney's best-known market and and one of the longest established. In a large indoor setting on the edge of Chinatown and on the tourist tram route you will find stalls selling all manner of wares and produce. On the upper floors of the same building you will find food halls and a large number of variety shops. We at White Hat have shopped at this maket many times over the years and have been as delighted with the things that remain the same as we have with the the new additions.
