Merry Times on Beaufort Street

Yes it's nearly that time of year again! The weather gets hotter, the drinks get cooler, your diet consists of too much food and your house starts to feel like an episode from Packed to the Rafters. Christmas is nearing and the countdown until that man with a white fluffy beard and bright red suit appears. We all know how busy this time of the year can be and here on Beaufort Street it’s no different. So many things happening from new street murals to Christmas festivals, read ahead about what’s been happening and what’s to come!

Mount Lawley Christmas Festival

Only four Mondays left until Christmas! Like every year, it’s is creeping up at a fast pace and although it’s the busiest time of the year it’s also the most exciting and happiest when families gather to spend some quality time together.

What better way to get into the Christmas spirit than a festival! This Sunday 29th head down to the Mount Lawley Christmas Festival for all things merry. The festivities will begin at 4pm flowing from St Patrick’s Anglican Church (corner First Avenue) and continuing down Wenberi Lane to Second Avenue IGA. The festival will have a range of activities to suit all different ages and interests including camel rides, artesan stalls, live music, Christmas carols, a beer and wine garden as well as food stalls and the lighting of the Mount Lawley Christmas tree.

Murals in Need!

Walking through the streets of Mount Lawley is like walking through a wonderland where the walls come to life with vibrant colours, animated faces, characters, shapes and various other artworks. The dreamlike art projects also celebrate all of what we are about here at the Beaufort Street Network and for the whole of the Mount Lawley area: art, community and collaboration.

Last year local Mount Lawley artist Mel McVee (aka Melski) started up the ‘Laneway Collective’ project, supported by the City of Vincent, and 30 inspiring artists collaborated to bring to you street murals across 30 different walls in a laneway in Mount Lawley.

This year in December they want to do it again but need help from the community. 10 of Perth’s best street artists will be involved this year, including Paul Deej, Brenton See, Fieldey and Melski, to name a few. The City of Vincent has generously agreed to donate $2,500 but only with a co-contribution from the community.

If you love walking through the streets of Mount Lawley and want to see more murals you can donate here.

Bike Chandelier

After long anticipation, (three years to be exact), it’s finally up! Lucky for us the overLOOKED project was put on display right before the Beaufort Street Festival after all the hard work from artist ‘reSPOKE and with huge thanks to the City of Vincent, The Beaufort Street Network, Neal Jackson and St Michaels for helping to make it happen. Thanks are to be given also to the amazing contributions from residents and local businesses that allowed for the project to go ahead.

Made partly from repurposed bicycle rims and chains this chandelier is positioned at the entrance to the laneway between Orno and St Michaels. This ornate light reaches 6.8 meters into the sky and will help illuminate the lane way at night. The piece is a true community project representing the organic charm in the hard surfaces and materials of the laneway.

Mary Street Piazza Officially Opened

A couple of Fridays ago the Mary Street Piazza had its official opening with all local residents invited to celebrate the start of something new. Designed specifically to provide a shared space for local residents and visitors to meet and relax on Beaufort Street, the Piazza is an example of the City of Vincent’s vision to create more places that people can enjoy.

Mayor John Carey officially opened the new space Friday 13th of December the day before the Beaufort Street Festival. Acting Mayor Cr Roslyn Harley said the new piazza is a community hub for all different people and activities.

“This new community hub provides a relaxing place for families to host picnics, allows people to linger longer on Beaufort Street with a coffee, and provides an oasis for workers during their lunch breaks or just a great place to read a book on the grass,” she said.

Christmas Art Market

Tis the season to be jolly at our Christmas themed Art Market  on Sunday December 6th. Located in the Barlee street car park come down between 9am and 1pm and get in to the Christmas spirit early while enjoying some local Perth art and our first taste of the Summer holidays!

Everyone is welcome!

That's a Wrap

The Beaufort Street Festival is Perth’s biggest and best street party. Festival 2015 attracted huge crowds again, which was amazing despite the heat!

Thank you to all the amazing volunteers, as well as Jump Climb and The Event Agency and all of our supporters including City of Vincent, City of Stirling and Lotterywest
