Surry Hills Festival 2012

Surry Hills Festival 2012

27 October, 2012

Surry Hills Festival 2012 returns to the newly renovated Prince Alfred Park to offer an even bigger variety of music, street theatre, food and market stalls.

This is a great community event to bring the family along to, as any funds raised go towards the Surry Hills Neighborhood Centre. Each year the venue is flooded with thousands from Sydney and beyond, and this year is shaping up to be the biggest Surry Hills Festival yet.

This is also a great opportunity for local up and coming artists or bands to perform live for a crowd, or those with creative minds and hands to set up a stall and earn some cash for their wares.

Where: Prince Alfred Park, Surry Hills
When: Saturday 27th October, 2012
Cost: Free

Green living is community living

Friday, 8 October 2010

The old fashioned view of green communities is of hippie communes. These days we’re more likely to think of Transition Towns and community gardens. But it doesn’t matter if you’re No Impact Man living in New York City or if you’re building an earthship in a country town... making green choices encourages community spirit.
