Murwillumbah Arts Trail coming in May

The sixth Murwillumbah Arts Trail is all set for the weekend of 29-30 May 2021. From its beginnings in 2015, the arts trail has grown to be a major festival for the visual arts, as well as a vibrant community event.


Sol and Jaber got an extraordinary surprise when they arrived at the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club ground to kick the ball around last week.

The Graffiti Faeries and other volunteer ordinary humans have been busy out at the facility in Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby.

Vollies and parents from the club are currently busy renovating and painting the clubhouse, toilets and canteen ready for the season ahead, and the place has spruced up a treat.

To help them along, sometime during the night last week under the stealth of a new moon and a drizzly cover the Graffiti Faeries came and went as only they can.

Fortunately, what they left in their wake was a lovely mural that only adds to the fantastic energy being created around the club as they prepare for another successful on-field campaign.

On Saturday 22 February the MBVFC are having an open day from  10am to 2pm at the club fields with mini-games. Uniforms will be available on the day and assistance with the rego process for those who need it.

On Sunday 23 February there will be a mufti bowls club fundraiser at the Brunswick Bowlo from 8am until late. Everyone is invited to join in and play bowls, share a breakfast and raise some money for the club.
