Let PK Entertain You

FIFTY+SA entertainment writer Paul Kitching reveals his most anticipated events in Adelaide this summer.

Paul Kitching (aka PK) from Fuller Brand Communication has been out and about enough over his 50+ years to still have his finger on the pulse for the best things to see, do and enjoy in our excellent state.

Whilst we all know life starts at 50, we also know what we like and are choosy about how we dedicate our precious spare time. PK reckons these are all worthy of that time.
