If you haven’t already cleared space in your diary for this year’s Brunswick Nature Sculpture Walk, (BNSW) then it’s about time you crossed out whatever you’ve got on and ensure you don’t miss the biggest installation of outdoor sculptures Brunswick Heads has ever seen.

This free event opens with a bang on Friday, September 28, the BNSW will not only feature more than 40 artworks that integrate with the natural environs of Brunswick Heads, but will also be running a number of workshops and masterclasses. If that isn’t a busy enough day for you, the official opening is at 6pm at the Brunswick Picture House, and you can continue the celebrations with The Cheeky Cabaret show on afterwards.

Over the weekend and on Monday, October 1, there will be guided walks around the sculptures, additional workshops and master classes, such as lantern-making, weaving and sandcastles, (all open to the public), as well as yoga, interactive performances, music and artist interviews.

The team from BNSW like to do things properly so on the final day Tuesday, October 2, there will be not only a lantern parade throughout town, but also a fire performance at Torakina Beach and of course, the awards ceremony and closing celebrations at the Hotel Brunswick, which will no doubt go well into the evening.

If that isn’t enough to get you penciling in these dates in your diary, then goodness knows what is! Given such a chock-full program of events, best you get along anyway, as the BNSW will be the talk of the town for months to come.
