Mother's Day Trail




Coffee, cake, entertainment and prizes all for only $5! Celebrate your Mum on Mother’s Day in Acland Precinct!

Mother’s Day Trail is a Mother’s Day event with a difference – where Mum and her guests get to experience all Acland Precinct has to offer – coffee, cake, entertainment and prizes for only $5!

Held on Sun, May 12 (Mother’s Day), the way it works is:

1. Book $5 ticket/s for Mum and all guests (with all funds raised donated to St Kilda Mums) NOTE: Ticket sales close Fri, May 10 at 5pm. There are no ticket sales at event
2. On arrival at the event, you collect your 4 x chosen cake samples from our delish cake shops
3. Then you collect your tea, coffee or drink from Jagger’s or Ground Yourself
4. You then take a seat in the Plaza for the show of your choice. You will have chosen either:

a) Flamenco music and dancing for 1.30pm
b) A mum comedy show at 2.30pm, or
c) Acland Precinct fashion show, followed by opera, at 3.30pm

5. Mum will also have the chance to win voucher prizes to our local hair, beauty and fitness businesses

Plus, visit our business stalls next to the stage to enter their competitions or take advantage of their specials/offers:

How’s that for fun! So, where to from here? Before booking a ticket/s you’ll need to choose two things –

1. Which act you will see (and therefore, what time you’ll be joining us) and,
2. Every ticket holder will need to choose their cake samples (so they can be ready for you on the day)

2pm arrival for Tight Mums, Loose Units mums comedy show from 2.30 – 3.20pm

Tight Mums, Loose Units – A combination of stand-up comedy and songs about motherhood, marriage & divorce. From four diverse backgrounds, we feel the same pressures placed on women to be perfect wives, mothers, friends and employees.  As mothers, we keep ourselves ‘tight’ – tightly wound, tight friends, tight bodies. But when we hit the stage, we’re loose units!
