    Lane Cove Council Festival Launch

    The Lane Cove Plaza was packed on Friday night as the Lane Cove Council launched its Lane Cove Festival guide.  The guide can be viewed here and most events are also listed on the In The Cove Events Calendar.

    Lane Cove Theatre Company – Next to Normal Opening Night

    Next to Normal is the story of a woman living with bipolar who is managing the impact of the condition on her family. An amazing cast and brilliant soundtrack! Truly one of the best plays ITc have seen in a while. Such a serious subject matter treated so beautifully. ITC highly recommends you purchase your tickets asap – as it is a very limited season. Lane Cove local Trent Williams is outstanding with a vocal ability that would be at home at a Broadway musical.
