Celebrate Local: Newtown Festival 2015Oct 13, 2015


By Charlie Ranger

Sydney has no end of things to do and brilliant festivals to boot. That being said, one that must go down on your ‘To Do’ list for 2015 is the Newtown Festival.

Each year over 90,000 people experience everything the festival has to offer, ranging from music to the arts, all the way through to grassroots creativity.

 

It’s a week-long event and “the theme for this year’s Newtown Festival is Newtopia,” says Festival Director Sue Andersen, which aims to celebrate “Newtown’s best qualities, like inclusivity, creativity and community.”

Presented annually by the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, donations from attendees go directly towards programs at the Centre, providing services for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.

 

[HCS] is very pleased to hear that there are going to be some cool local bars serving some of the best local brews! Alongside these, a few hidden gems are sure to be uncovered with the return of the ‘Newtown Locals’ area, which also showcases the neighbourhood’s favourite restaurants and cafes.

With no end of things to do in this year’s festival, highlights are sure to be the live music and performers going around including Jinja Safari, The Laurels, The Cops and The Walking Who. A bunch of others acts will help fill five stages with some of the best beats around. At the same time, the festival will be hosting almost three hundred stalls that include, a Writers’ Tent, Dog Show, Vocal Local Village, Kids Zone, Live Art Hub, Eco Oasis, roving performers and much more.

 

So if you’re looking for something to do this November the 8th, come along to the Camperdown Memorial Rest Park for the main exhibition of this year’s Newtown Festival. It’s promising to be an amazing event, and all in support of a worthy local cause.
