The flicker of candles and the sound of children’s voices beckon you into St George’s Cathedral, from the cold air of a winter’s night.
Sunday 3 July at 5.00pm sees Perth’s first Winterfest beginning with a candlelight service sung by children of Perth’s schools, then spilling unto the Cathedral terrace for a feast of sizzling bratwurst, steaming paella, traditional Romanian winter food, spicy empanadas, and aromatic tagine. Wash it down with hot mulled wine before moving on to roast chestnuts, German gingerbread, brioche, and biscuits. Pick up some scented candles and glassware as you browse the fairylight-draped stalls.
If you liked the Twilight Hawkers Market in Forrest Place in March, you’ll love Winterfest this July. Run by the same professional team, Winterfest also includes wandering musicians, masked Commedia dell’arte performers, and Fiesta del Fuego, Perth’s own fire-juggling duo.
Part of City of Perth Winter Arts Season Winterfest also warms the hearts of others, as part profits go to Yipirinya, a pioneering indigenous school in the Territory which has links with Perth’s Christ Church Grammar School.
Market stalls trading and performance artists from about 6.00pm until about 8.30pm.
