On the first Tuesday of every month (except January) the board of the Reserve Bank of Australia holds a monthly meeting. At this meeting they decide on (among other things) the current settings for official interest rates. The official interest rates have a significant effect on financial markets, home buyers, mortgage holders and self-funded retirees. The rates are usually announced by mid afternoon.

This day has been designated by the United Nations as World Environment Day. If you you are interested in the environment and sustainability, you may wish to subscribe white Hat's free Environment and Sustainability Newsletter.

BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical

BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical tells the true story of Carole King’s remarkable rise from teenage songwriter to global star. She fought her way into the record business as a schoolgirl but it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice and went on to become one of the most successful solo artists in pop music history. The show features many of her most popular songs, including You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman, You’ve Got a Friend, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, I Feel The Earth Move and many more. Fans of Carole King will not be disappointed by this staged tribute.

Top Hat Tuesdays
Top Hat Tuesdays logoIf you are looking for something different to do on the first Tuesday of the month White Hat suggests you might investigate some magic in Chinatown. Top Hat Tuesdays are a celebration of the magical arts, showcasing the best of Melbourne’s local and travelling magicians. Every month, you can come and experience a night of magic and mystery. Doors open 7pm, show from 7.30 to 9pm. When the final curtain draws at Top Hat Tuesdays, it’s time to share the limelight with your friends, with the venue transforming into an open-mic karaoke bar, so if you don’t want the fun to end, hang around for a Tom Jones rendition or two.
