Ditch the desk, loosen up the tie or put on those flats and head overÂ to theÂ Queensland Performing Arts CentreÂ (QPAC) to experienceÂ Lunchtime LiveÂ everyÂ FridayÂ atÂ 12.30pmÂ fromÂ 24 April to 13 November 2015.
Transforming the lunchbreak as you know it,Â Lunchtime LiveÂ is a bite sized 30 minutes of FREE weekly entertainment that will jazz up your lunch time and help avoid the crumbs in your keyboard.Â Lunchtime LiveÂ will be held across various locations around QPAC eachÂ FridayÂ for 30 minutes.
