The annual South Coast Regional woodcraft exhibition and sale will be held in Central Tilba on Saturday 9 June (9.00 am – 4.00 pm) and Sunday 10 June (10.00 am – 3.00 pm). Cost is $2 for adults, with free entry for children under 12. MasterCard and Visa facilities will be available. This is your chance to explore the versatility, tactile experience and visual beauty of the wood artisan’s craftsmanship and to ask any of those ‘how to’ questions you’ve been saving up. Be it joinery, carved, turned, sculpted – decorative, functional or just plain quirky - you’ll find it on show or for sale. As always, the exhibition will showcase the work of fine wood crafters from north of Batemans Bay to south of Eden. There will be hundreds of exquisitely handcrafted items on display and for sale, and you can watch the magic of wood turners at work, with demonstrations held throughout the weekend. Whether you’re looking for inspiration, to buy some fine woodwork, to have those ‘how do they do that?’ questions answered, to watch an artisan at work, or you just want to appreciate the look and feel of finely finished timber, the Tilba Woodwork Exhibition and Sale caters for you.

Narooma’s Regional Busking Festival and Competition this Saturday promises to be ‘sensational’ and it is free for spectators.
‘Fifty-five busker registrations, that’s over 200 people from Victoria, Canberra, Sydney, out to Cowra and Gundagai will fill Narooma throughout Saturday with all kinds of wonderful music and other performance acts,’ said excited Festival co-ordinator Sandra Doyle.
‘That will be topped off with a concert from 4pm at the Golf Club from a variety of performers who have busked through the day. Narooma will certainly be buzzing.
‘Each act will play at four or five of the 35 busker hot spots around town that are sponsored by the adjacent businesses, with music ranging from country, blues, jazz and rock, to Scottish bagpipes, dancers, poets and circus acts.
‘Extra busker hot spots this year are around the Kinema (where the River of Art Festival Art Prize exhibition is still on display at the SoART Gallery and School of Arts’ Studios), on NATA Oval and near Quarterdeck.’
The Festival is hosted by Narooma Rotary Club, partnered with River of Art, and is part of the Australian National Busking Championships (ANBC). It is the last major event in the 2018 River of Art Festival.
A programme listing each busking act and the timetable for each hot spot (9am-3pm) is available online and in hard copy on the day from the Busking Information Stall opposite the Ice Creamery, from the Visitors’ Centre and from the yellow Rotary-vested Busker Vote sellers. Profiles of some of the registered buskers are on the website.
