VENUE Tues Nights – A&S Venue and Activity Details (From 20 Jan 2014 until TBA)

Hi Everyone,

For the next 10 or so weeks we have a dedicated space for A&S on Tuesday Nights (away from those loud fighters) at the Herb Greedy Hall, 76 Petersham Rd, Marrickville, 2204.

(Note: If you just put the address or name of the hall into Google Maps, you’ll possibly have difficulty finding it! There is a church on the corner of Marrickville and Petersham Roads, Herb Greedy Hall is opposite the church on Petersham Road. The entrance is right near the phone booth)

From 7pm until 10pm.

For the first week (tomorrow) it’ll be a simple ‘bring a project and be crafty together’ session. I know we have some musicians interested. I’ll be sewing (and happy to help anyone else with their sewing). Regular singing practice will also be there.

Kicking off two weeks from tomorrow I will be running a fortnightly pre-Festival sew-along (similar to something I did with the Ursulans last year. Details to follow). We will also be running two sessions to help all our non-clothed newcomers get some garb for Festival.

There is kitchen space, and space for 2 classes / workshops to be run concurrently. If you want to run a class or workshops then let me know.

Yours,
Clara van de Maes
A&S officer

The centre will be open from 9.30 – 4.30, and we will have a break in the middle for a Pot Luck lunch. This would be a great time for anyone who would like to try out some of their period cooking on a receptive audience to bring out some of their creations. Alternatively just bring along something to share, it does not have to be a period dish.

Bring a project you are working on, start a new project or come and learn something new. Or why not bring and play some Board games or outdoor games.

This is a child–friendly event with boffer and games. All persons under the age of 18 years must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Archery practice is target practice with blunts.

Address

The Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park, 26 Stanley Road, Epping

For those needing public transport there are regular trains to Epping Station. Epping Station is 1.1 km from Dence Park so the walk from the Station will take about 10-15 minutes. Or if you would rather buses you can catch the M54 which goes near Epping Station on Beecroft Rd every 20 minutes on weekends and will take you to within 500 meters of the Creative Center if you get off at the Epping Road near Crandon bus stop just two  stops or if you miss that one the next stop will get you to within 800 meters of the Center. For those who want to drive there is loads of parking, some of it is double parking so if you are not staying all day make sure that you know who you are parking in front of it. Most of the parking is not double parking and is not a problem.

Now more singing, dancing and other non-combat activities from 6pm Tuesdays at Petersham Town Hall

There is a regular fighter practice each Tuesday evening at Petersham Town Hall, yes, check, we knew about that :)

What you may not be aware of is…

We’ve extended the hire time for the Petersham Town Hall on Tuesdays! We now hire the hall from 6pm (instead of 7pm) and are using the earlier availability to focus more on humanity type activities.

Non-combat related events on Tue are growing, with more regular singing, dancing and various other activities happening FROM 6PM ON.

So, before the more voluminous physical conversations happen (yes, I mean combat practice), the more artistic and gentle arts are now getting together more frequently and in less noise distracted fashion, earlier on Tuesdays (they do also happen elsewhere, we just wish to make you aware of an earlier opening time at Petersham Town Hall on Tuesdays).

So, the hall is now being used more regularly for singing, dancing and other arts from 6pm till 7.30ish. At that point there is definitely more making of noise from combat, but even then, other areas of the hall are available for use (and being used as such) for non-combat focussed SCA activity.

Dance classes will start at 1.30pm in the afternoon and hope any musician’s seeing this will be interested in coming along and helping us out.
