Happy New Year everyone! I’m rather happy to be involved in the Sydney Festival again this year as a volunteer and marshal. This year’s festival is jam-packed with events, and is the first to be directed by Lieven Bertels. Some of the main events include the Arrival of the Rubber Duck, Concrete and Bone Sessions: a dance-theatre act held at a skate park and the music events at Paradiso, the Festival Bar in Town Hall.
This is my third year volunteering for the Festival, and I enjoy meeting and talking to all sorts of people that pass through the city. I’m usually at the information booths, collecting about funny questions people ask me, as well as telling people about what they can see at the Festival. It’s pretty obvious that I love when friends and all pass by where I’m stationed, so below are the dates that I’ll be at booths.
Thurs 10 Jan: Martin Place booth 3-7pm
Tues 15 Jan: The Quiet Volume, Mitchell Library 12:30-4pm
Fri 18 Jan: Martin Place booth 1-7pm
Thurs 24 Jan Circular Quay booth 1-5pm
I’m also marshaling at the Arrival (rubber duck) this Saturday 5 January and at the Parramatta opening and closing parties on 19 and 26 January respectively. Do say hello if you see me around, but first and foremost, enjoy these free events!
