Lilydale Arts thanks lutist Susan King for a fabulous & fascinating concert.  

Susan is not only an amazing musician, but she is organising a Lute Festival in February 2014 - in Lilydale. 

Thanks to Susan's energy we will have the international lute superstar, Hopkinson Smith, performing and teaching in Lilydale, we will have people building their own lutes, and much music-making happening.

 This focus on the lute - a beautiful wooden instrument - is the 2014 Lilydale Festival of Wood. And don't forget to buy a DVD of the 2013 Festival of Wood.

2013 Lilydale Winter Solstice Lantern Walk 

 

On Friday 21 June, the Lilydale Falls reserve returned to its magical state for the Lantern Walk marking the winter solstice. It could not have been a more beautiful evening - moonlight, stillness, lanterns, snags and lovely people.

Lilydale Arts was thrilled with the turnout - lots of little ones, even the tiniest of them clutching lanterns and lots of prams. John Ralph, the piper lead the walk and the line of lanterns snaked around the reserve then along side the river to the fairy dell at the end.

Sincere thanks to:

Ian Williams and Jillian Weston for all the planning and organising of the Falls

Jenny Scott and Paula Lange for their wonderful Lantern Workshop

Lilydale Lions Club for the wonderful snags

Lilydale Fire Brigade for helping with the parking.

Newnham Police for allowing two members to join in the fun.

Lilydalians for coming along and making it such a wonderful evening.

 

The Waterwheel mystery

It was at Echobank, a property on the Second River just downstream from the Lilydale Falls. This property is now owned by Peter Arnold. Click here for more information about when the photo was taken.

Yep, Lilydale Arts has joined the twitterati, but with some degree of perplexity. Anyone want to help us learn to be twitterliterate?
