Wil Valor Wedding Suit Masterclass:  Tuesday 4 December

In breaking news, the modern wedding is now about the suit! The groom’s suit and that of his groomsmen and crew are major considerations. And since Australia said YES, weddings are so hot right now! So, there’s  no more standing in the shadows gentlemen – your time to shine at the alter is now. Terrified? Don’t be…. with over 3,500 wedding suits under his custom-made cuff, Mark Ferguson, director of bespoke gentleman’s tailor and fashion curator, Wil Valor, knows a thing or two about tying the knot in style and on Tuesday next week, he’s prepared to share!

The Wil Valor Wedding Suit Master Class will be held on Tuesday 4 December at Wil Valor in Brisbane Quarter. And it’s open to grooms and partners and brides to alike!

“I created and developed the Wedding Suit Master Class to help grooms-to-be to navigate the journey of finding the perfect suit for their dream wedding. There’s so much information online for grooms-to-be and I found many of my clients were confused and had similar questions when it came to finding a wedding suit. Shopping for a wedding suit should be fun, so to make the process less overwhelming for grooms-to-be, I created an easy to digest master class that uncovers all the options available while sharing some of the latest style trends,” says Mark.

The Wil Valor Wedding Suit Master Class will share insight into:

  • The difference between Hire, Off the Rack, Made-to-Measure Bespoke: Each option has its advantages and disadvantages and it’s important as a groom you know the difference.
    • For instance, hiring a suit is probably your least expensive route, costing as little as $200. However, the downside is the fit isn’t going to be anywhere near perfect, and you’ll discover that the selection of styles and colours is somewhat limited.
    • The next option would be to purchase an off the rack suit – while slightly more expensive, you’ll get to wear it multiple times and you’ll have access to a wide variety of brands, styles and colours. The downside, the fit still won’t be perfect, and you may end up spending a bit of time going from store to store searching for the right suit.
    • Finally, dress to impress with a tailor made suit. On the upper end, a tailor-made suit can cost as much as $3,000, but starts from at the reasonable price of $1500. You’ll get a custom fit, along with personalised services from an expert. And, a bespoke tailored suit means your suit is one-of-a-kind and you won’t see anyone else wearing the same suit as you.
  • When is the right time to go suit shopping for a seamless and stress-free experience?
  • Find out exactly what you need to know before you start suit shopping.
  • Don’t want a suit, no problem! There are plenty of alternatives.
  • From formal to semi-formal, afternoon to evening, when is a bow tie appropriate?
  • From black tie to casual, wedding dress code explained.
  • What are the different level of dress and what is appropriate for your wedding
  • Who pays? How to work out if and what your groomsmen contribute.
  • Current colour and style trends for 2019.
  • What makes the perfect fit?

An informative and practical evening, grooms-to-be are encouraged to bring along their partner and/or best man as Mark Ferguson shares inside knowledge into the wedding industry and showcases the latest looks and trends for 2019.

Quality community theatre is alive and kicking here at Sandgate. We have 4 productions annually (5 shows apiece) We host the Yarrageh Drama Fesitval in September with amateur theatre groups from throughout South-East Queensland presenting their best one-act plays, and the general public are encouraged to attend.

Sandgate Theatre Inc has been performing since 1958, starting with a donation of £5,5s from the local Rotary group under the name ‘The Sandgate Little Theatre Group’ and this year we celebrated our 60th birthday.

Our recent show has just closed and “Death’s Desire”, a dark drama was well received with the audience finding humour and relating to the plight of the characters as well as enjoying the twist at the end. “The Vicar of Dibley” attracted our largest audiences and next year we will finish the season with a feel good musical so make sure you keep an eye out you will not want to miss it, (the lads are at the gym as we speak).

We rehearse at Bracken Ridge, usually on Tuesday and Thursday with some Sunday rehearsals needed as opening night gets closer. Shows are based at the beautiful historic Sandgate Townhall. With its lovely Art Deco ambience the auditorium is table seating and you are encouraged to bring eats and drinks, and all the lovely takeaways in the area means it is a wonderful inexpensive night out.

Tickets range from $10 for members to $22 for adults. Shows are over two weekends with opening night on a Friday and the matinee closing the show on the following Sunday. Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 7.30pm on nights and for the matinee doors open at 1.30 pm for a 2pm start. They usually run for just over 2 hours including the interval.

Auditions are open to the general public and everyone is supported and encouraged to give it a go. They are usually held a week or so at the close of the previous show at the Townhall over two nights, generally you will be asked to fill in a form and indicate what part you are interested in, you will be asked to read, singers will be asked to sing. A preview of the script is available to read-through prior to audition and you are encouraged to have a chat to the director who will include their phone number in the audition notice. If you are wanting to help behind the scenes please contact us anytime.

Community theatre is a unique experience where a wide variety of entertainment is offered through the year.

Happy, sad, funny, pensive we bring it all to you.For a thoughtful present why not include a gift voucher to any of our shows for $18 or the season for $66. We will make sure they are kept up to date and made to feel welcome. Just contact us via email or phone 0403 881 364

The first show for next year is a comedy that features Elvis back from the dead, missing diamonds, and will be sure to put a smile on your face as you go out the “Green door” singing (even if you do see a “Bad Moon Arising”). Bookings open soon on so keep an eye out for “Haunted Halloween”. We don’t want you to miss out and have to visit” Heart break Hotel” …. just kidding, luckily there are plenty of seats and tickets at door(cash sales).
