December 04, 2017

Surry Hills is set to celebrate all things Christmas with decoration workshops, free gift wrapping services, live DJ, kids’ entertainment and photos with Santa.

The village’s first Christmas festival, A Very Surry Hills Christmas, will bring together retailers, local businesses and the community to celebrate the festive season.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the event was part of the City of Sydney’s efforts to attract more shoppers to the area and support local businesses and the community.

“Local retailers are part of what makes Surry Hills special and unique. This event is about boosting our support for those local businesses, residents and visitors who spend time in the area,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

“We’ve worked closely with Sydney artist Jeff McCann to create a range of unique works for our Christmas event, including wrapping paper, wreaths and spectacular Christmas trees that will decorate Shannon Reserve.

“A Very Surry Hills Christmas will light up and energise the village, and I hope as many residents and businesses as possible come together for this celebration.”

Gifts purchased from local retailers can be gift wrapped, free of charge, in distinctive McCann-designed paper created specifically for the event.

Visitors can take part in free workshops and learn to make their own Christmas decorations, from floral wreaths and screen-printed coasters to personalised edible gingerbread gifts.

A live DJ will entertain crowds throughout the day and there will be face painting, free entertainment and photos with Santa for the kids.
