Last Fridays: Winter Warm Up
Newcastle Art Gallery
Newcastle Art Gallery, 1 Laman St, Newcastle, NSW, 2300
Last Fridays is set to warm up your midwinter blues with a playful sensory focused event!!
Enjoy sweet soulful tunes from local blues musician BODIE. Taking great inspiration from the eras of funk and Motown, Bodie delivers a heart-melting performance every time.
Your senses will be delighted by interactive displays from Maker Store inhabitants – florist Val ent een and local skincare potion maker Studium essentials. Feast your eyes upon floral wreaths or lift up glass cloches to experience a handcrafted scent. Want more? Don’t worry, market stalls will be available to purchase your own winter warm up wares.
To energise the cold season, the Gallery’s Youth Reference Group will be on hand with games and poetry making. Rummage through pre-loved phrases and sentences, convert logic into nonsense and form a Dadaist poem of your own. Backgammon boards will be on hand to pick up and play or grab a few pointers from our team – the combination of strategy and luck equals the perfect winter game for young and old.
Plus our pop-up bar will be serving mulled wine to counter the winter chills.
Free, Friday 28 June, from 5-8pm
No bookings required
