Sydney Festival 2016

I made a rather flying 24 hours visit to Sydney this week. Saw the absolutely fantastic stage adaptation of Jasper Jones at Belvoir Street last night (further gushing here). For those unlucky enough not to be able to see it, then read the book as soon as you can, and there is a movie version coming later this year.

Today we went to the Hyde Park Sydney Festival hub. And participated in a very fun event. Dance Your Hyde Off with Guru Hudu. SO much fun.

And soon we were on a silent disco walking tour of Hyde Park. 

I've never thought about the Archibald Fountain
as a disco icon before,
but clearly it is

It was so fun, and even more fun to watch the reactions of other festival goers.

I liberated three books from the Library on the Lawn.

I've never made it to the Speigeltent though. Maybe next year.

And then we went to Bodhi for Vegan Yum Cha.

But you can't live on vegan yum cha alone, so it was back to Hyde Park for Gelato Messina.

Oh, I would love to go to a festival like that! I haven't seen anything like it here. The library on the lawn looks delightful.

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

I think a silent disco tour is one of the coolest things I've ever heard of!
