The Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre is proud to present the Surry Hills Festival for 2010. The festival’s regular home of Prince Alfred Park is undergoing extensive renovations, so this year the festival will be finding a temporary new home and a new shape. The 2010 festival will be creative, intimate and have a community picnic feel with the entertainment stages limited to two small parks – Ward Park (Devonshire Street) & Shannon Reserve (Crown Street), and possibly other satellite venues.
The festival will present a mosaic of live entertainment and djs, 60 market stalls, free fun activities for kids and families, tasty international food, amusement rides and the famous Surry Hills Dog Show, in a miniature version of the usual festival. Festival goers are also encouraged to take the opportunity to explore other activities and venues around the suburb on festival day.
Surry Hills is accessible by bus, train and light rail and local venues are within walking distance. Ward Park is just a short stroll up Devonshire Street from Central Station and Railway Square. Once you’re there, Surry Hills is the perfect walking suburb as there’s something to uncover on every corner – and plenty of pubs and cafes to take a load off from a long day’s walk.
Date and time: Saturday 10th April 2010 from 9:30am to 6:00pm
Location: Ward Park, Shannon Reserve, Surry Hills and various other venues across Surry Hills (only for 2010 – back in Prince Alfred Park in 2011.)
