If you haven’t visited the NGV’s colourful Pierre Bonnard exhibition yet, you’ve almost definitely heard about it. It’s one of the most exciting things to explore in Melbourne right now, which means it’s also one of the busiest. But Access members can get an intimate, after-hours look at our exclusive event.

And if art isn’t your thing, there’s plenty more you can do through Access this month: a long Saturday pop-up lunch with one of Melbourne’s most beloved chefs, discounted tickets to a glitzy new comedy at The Arts Centre, or even a wintry getaway to New Zealand.

• The NGV’s world-premiere Pierre Bonnard exhibition has been swamped by crowds, but you can escape them at a private, after-hours tour – with champagne and a talk from the curator – for less than $50.

• Tickets: Michelle Law’s unmissable new comedic play Miss Peony is finally coming to Melbourne after literal years of anticipation, and Access members can exclusively save 20 per cent on tickets.

• Tickets: on July 4, Access will be dropping free tickets to a highly acclaimed new film starring Cate Blanchett.

• Last chance: don’t miss in-demand chef and hummus king Tom Sarafian’s Middle Eastern pop-up in Fitzroy North this Saturday. He’ll be cooking up a feast (including charcoal chicken kebabs and hummus with fried lamb and pine nuts).

Win: Broadsheet is also giving away a six-day escape to New Zealand’s South Island, including return flights, accommodation, dining experiences, a rental car and activities. Access members have triple the chance to win.
