Flemington & Kensington Bowling Club

At Flem-Ken we have a strong community focus and host a multitude of different events all year round from fundraisers to craft beer days, bowls tournaments and much more. You can see our upcoming events in the ‘Upcoming Events’ section at the bottom of the page. Some of our most popular events include:

Meet the Brewers

Usually held on Sundays or prior to public holidays the head brewer from one of the many craft beer breweries whose beers we love, comes down to Flem-Ken to give us the run down on how they got into brewing, what inspired each of their range of beers, what went into making them and what beers they are planning on brewing next. Of course, the brewers range is available at discount prices so this is great way to mingle with like minded beer geeks and enjoy the delicious hops and malts on offer.

Nelson Alexander Community Cup

Made possible by our major sponsors Nelson Alexander this is a novice bowling tournament held on Thursday nights under lights for several weeks starting in February and is one of the most enjoyable events we hold. Strictly for non-pennant playing novice bowlers, teams of four get out there and try their luck and skills at competition bowls whilst having a free feed and a laugh. There are over $1000 worth of prizes to be won as well as the chance to inscribe your teams name into the prestigious perpetual Community Cup Trophy for all of time.

Live Blues Music

The MBAS Tuesday Night House of Blues Jam provides a meeting point for Blues musicians. It is a source of entertainment for members of MBAS and lovers of Blues music and it is a showcase for emerging talents in the Blues scene. The format is feature act – 8.00-8.45PM followed by the Jam – 9.00-11.00PM. Entry is free unless there is a special guest appearing. Please check the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society website for details. The MBAS site is http://www.mbas.org.au/

Wheel of Beer

On most public holidays we unleash our famous Wheel of Beer. It’s basically a wheel of fortune and for just $7 a spin you never know what beer you will be drinking next. Over 30 beers from our range are available to win including some rare premium brews so value for money is guaranteed.
