Christmas at the Female Orphan School 2016
Fri. 2 December 2016, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
A festive evening of music, art and family entertainment at the historic Female Orphan School on the Parramatta campus of Western Sydney University.
Join us for this free event which includes extraordinary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performances, the local Valley Voices choir and for the first time at the Female Orphan School, Spooky Men’s Chorale.
Santa and the Elves have already sent through their RSVPs, and there’ll be special kids’ Christmas craft and activities to keep the smaller members of your household happy!
The Margaret Whitlam Galleries will be open, so it’s a perfect opportunity to see A Sense of Place: The artist Greg Hansell's record of history now. This stunning exhibition showcases the work of Greg Hansell, one of the best known and loved artists working in the Hawkesbury region.
It’s the perfect time of year to bring a picnic to enjoy in the courtyard. A limited number of snacks and soft drinks will be available free of charge, and beer and wine will be available for purchase (no BYO alcohol permitted).
You can also donate new, unwrapped toys, clothing and books for children and teenagers to the Salvation Army Christmas Toy Appeal whilst you are here. Gifts will be distributed to disadvantaged children and teenagers in the Greater Western Sydney region.
This event is presented by the Western Sydney University Parramatta Campus Life Committee and the Whitlam Institute.
