Looking for relief from the heat?

Join long-time favourite resident DJ Mike Gurrieri at Prahran Aquatics Centre for a mixture of laidback soul, funk, jazz and world music grooves by the pool during the City of Stonnington’s Summer Sundays sessions.

City of Stonnington Mayor, Cr Steve Stefanopoulos, said Summer Sundays are a fantastic way to relax and escape Melbourne’s heat.

“It’s warming up and Prahran Aquatic Centre is a great place to spend time with friends and enjoy one of the many summer events in Stonnington,” said Cr Stefanopoulos.

“Located just off Chapel Street, “Prahran Pool” as it is known by the locals, is always popular during summer and I hope even more people will join DJ Mike Gurrieri for Summer Sundays.

“Summer Sundays are alcohol-free, suitable for all ages and will be an enjoyable way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon,” added Cr Stefanopoulos.

Summer Sundays run from 1-6pm on Sunday 20 January, 3 February and 10 February at
