On Sunday, 26 June 2016, we held our first annual Winter Music Picnic.
The entertainment line-up included the Blue Earth Marimba band, Irish and Highland Dancers from Robinson Dance Studio and the De La Salle Combined Pipers. Numerous stalls ensured that it was a day to remember.
Guests strolled through our artists garden, a selection of different artistic styles, in various mediums; (oils, pastels, acrylic and photography) were on display and for sale. Our gourmet food stall section was a haven for many a hungry picnic-goer, with artisanal ice cream and waffles, hot food stands and delectable relishes as well as craft beer and wine on offer.
Many people took advantage of an early Christmas shopping opportunity at our numerous arts & crafts stalls. Our book stall, teeming with a vast range of titles, was also very popular on the day.
Our Winter Music Picnic was a fabulous day out and we hope to have it on our event calendar again next year.
Thank you to MJ Event Gear for sponsoring our stage as well as SAB Miller for the craft beer and equipment. Thanks to all the staff, volunteers and stallholders as well as the entertainers, who helped make our Winter Music Picnic such a success.
