Be whizzed around the Fair with Joel Beers in a transformed golf-buggy taxi bus with Toony-town, have your tarot-card read with Adam Jones and sip a calypso cocktail at Imogen Jade's Creamy Cocktail Bar.
For the past 6 years, Joel Beers has been driven to Little Orange located at Campbelltown Arts Centre by Tony or “Toony-town” as Joel affectingly refers to him. Joel is often inspired by Tony’s homeland of Liverpool, England and his pet dashboard bubble-head English Bulldog Freddy. Be whizzed around in a transformed golf-buggy taxi bus whilst listening to Joel’s stories of adventures on Tony’s bus and the musical notes of Tony’s horn.
Imogen Jade’s Creamy Bar cocktail bar celebrates all things calypso, icy and fruity. Custom recipes Imogen has been workshopping include; Baby Koala Broke-Umbilical-Cord glazed blue cocktail, Nesting Spider Rat Palm tree cocktail and a Bloody Mary Bunk-Bed Blue-Tongue-Lizard cocktail. Be photographed with the artist and strike a glamour pose by the bar!

Join Adam to see what your future holds.
