Dear Residents of Walsh Bay

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the coming festive season!

I am the Venue and Events Manager at Sydney Dance Lounge and I must say we feel extremely lucky and privileged to be able to trade in such a fantastic spot. Because of this we have once again begun to work towards opening the Venue for this coming New Year’s Eve (2016/2017). Last year our guests had such a great spot to watch the fireworks from, and we would like to once again showcase just how amazing Walsh Bay is as an area to visit.

Please be advised that the Variety Santa Fun Run will be taking place on Sunday 4th December 2016 between 8:30am – 11am. The start and finish is at First Fleet Park, Circular Quay. It is expected the run will attract up to 2,500 participants. 

There are no Special Event Clearways in place and the run takes place predominately on footpath areas. Roads will be progressively re-opened by Who Dares and User Paid Police after clear of runners. The following traffic conditions will be in place on the event day: 

On behalf of the Walsh Bay Precinct Association,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that at 3am this morning our Walsh Bay Precinct Manager of nearly 10 years, Luke Meads, has passed away after a short but courageous battle with cancer.
 
Luke has been an integral part of the Walsh Bay community, and an admirable and supportive Precinct Manager. It is truly devastating that he is no longer with us and will be sorely missed.
 
On behalf of the entire Walsh Bay community, we extend our very deepest condolences to Luke's family.

The arts takes centre stage for the inner city under the 2016-2017 budget with a sweeping redevelopment of the Walsh Bay cultural precinct.
