The Festival Director, Sue Clarence, has just spent a happy hour calculating the intricacies and magnitude of the festival. Faced with these statistics, she challenges anyone to say that there is nothing for them. There are:
– 237 scheduled events: plays, concerts, music revues, talks, workshops, demonstrations, street theatre performances, live music, films, wine and bubbles tastings … in 23 venues;
– 91 visual artists in six different venues;
– Five exhibitions in five venues;
– 38 spots to get coffee, food and snacks;
– 125 bespoke craft stalls
All these are within walking distance from each other. Park safely once only! Entrance to the grounds is free. There is free live music in the Stella Festival Marquee and the Crookes Craft Beet Bistro. All art exhibitions are free and all street theatre is free. In fact, the vibe is FREE…so come along. Be prepared for all weather.
The KidZone will keep small people happy …and it’s carefully positioned for Mums and Dads to have a coffee …. or even a sip of something stronger
