Un-hibernate with us

Welcome to Launceston in winter

There are so many beautiful things about the cool seasons; crisp air, evening lights, rugging up, hot chocolate and hearty soups.

Embrace the cooler months - there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong jacket …

So get into the city and feel the warmth this winter like a true Launceston local.

The Lounge Facebook event banner

This winter, we're transforming an unoccupied shop in the CBD into a bustling hub for eight weeks – this space will become Launnie's lounge room, a place in which you can relax and unwind, escape the cold, and enjoy some good company.

What you can expect:

  • Live music from local acts
  • Jam sessions where visitors are welcome to join in (there will be some instruments available to use in the space, or you can bring your own)
  • Local art on display on The Lounge Gallery wall
  • Chill times with vinyl playing
  • Cosy couches, bean bags and rugs in the heated space
  • Free fruit to snack on supplied by local producers
  • Board games and jigsaw puzzles
  • A small kids' corner for little ones to play in
  • Quiet Hour to make the space is more accessible to those who need a sensory-friendly retreat

The Lounge is inspired by the concept of 'third places' – communal, accessible, free, safe, and uplifting spaces that very often turn out to be just the tonic people need from the effects of disconnection, and everyday mundanity and responsibility.
