We're chuffed to say that the from the money we raised at the Newtown Festival this year (selling you our fabulous festival menu collaborations and local brews and vino's) we donated $10,901 to Newtown Neighbourhood Centre's First Response Program.
The Newtown Locals return for the festival in 2016! This year will work in groups to create five dishes, all available at the reasonable price of $10. Punters will have no shortage of beverage options with wine from For the Dandy in the Clos and Sparrow and Vine, Young Henrys gin and house-made Fleetwood Macchiato sodas, as well as coffee from 2042’s finest caffeine slingers. All profits will be donated directly to FIRST RESPONSE – Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, a frontline emergency response service, dealing with drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness and homelessness within the Inner West area.
Due to the overwhelming success of 2014, the eclectic posse of local faces and places that makes up The Newtown Locals is this year returning to the 37th annual Newtown Festival with an even bigger and more impressive line up.
