Hazelhurst to Re-open on 22nd June 2020
A message from the Hazelhurst Team:
Following the easing of restrictions in NSW we are excited to welcome you back to Hazelhurst Arts Centre from Monday 22 June!
We know Hazelhurst is an important and valued part of our community and we look forward to welcoming you back to a refreshed and safe facility. Until then we are completing valuable maintenance and improvement works and developing new ways for you to enjoy Hazelhurst.
As we re-open on Monday 22 June, the health and well-being of the community and our staff remains our top priority and we’ve been carefully planning the measures we need to implement, in line with government restrictions and health guidelines.
One measure we all are aware of is the need for social distancing which means we need to limit the numbers in the gallery, our studios and cafe. Initially we will open the galleries, the gardens and the cafe and you will be able to book your visit to Hazelhurst online to help ensure you can visit when you choose.
At a later date we will introduce a new range of art classes, which meet government restrictions and health guidelines. These classes will need to be a lot smaller so our regular Term Art Class Program and School Holiday Program will be temporarily suspended until further notice.
Please keep checking our social media pages for further updates as they become available.
See you soon!

Hyde Park Walking Tour: From the Anzac Memorial to St. James Churchhttps://www.friendsofhazelhurst.org/index.php/event/hyde-park-walking-tour-from-the-anzac-memorial-to-st-james-church/
Starting with a Guided Tour of the Anzac Memorial and finishing with a concert in St. James Church, join John for an exploration through Hyde Park.
Surrounded by majestic buildings and incorporating gardens, avenues, water features and statues, Hyde Park is the centre of 200 years of stories as the oldest designated park in Australia proclaimed by Governor Macquarie in 1810.
Have a coffee beforehand and meet inside the southern ground floor entrance of the Anzac Memorial at 9.30AM. We’ll talk to current artist in residence Cory Rinaldi before a 10.00AM guided tour. John will then highlight key points of interest as we weave through Hyde Park.
Bring a sandwich and snacks for lunch in Hyde Park before we cross to St. James Church for the 1.15 – 1.45PM concert. John will then conclude the walking tour with a detailed look inside the Church after the concert.
Cost: $15.00 FOH Members only. Bookings essential through Hazelhurst Administration.
Note: A medium level of fitness is required as there are some stairs to negotiate as well as walking through the park. Wear sturdy shoes, hat(or umbrella), sunscreen and carry bottled water.
