Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-Togethers to See Entry Cost Increase.
Organisers for the Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-togethers have announced that for the first time in many years, there is to be small increase in the door donations for their monthly gatherings. This increase to $8.00 (members/concession up from $6.00) and $10 (others, up from $8.00). Entry will still be free for Under 18 and 80+. The new door price starts from August 2022.
The Inner West Council’s practice has been to have a small increase in hall/meeting room hire at the beginning of each financial year. These costs increases have been absorbed for some time, but finances dictate that the door price will needs to reflect thermal costs of hire.
Organisers have expressed their thanks, that the Council gives them the community rate, and has been very fair about our short-notice cancellations during the Covid years (2020-2021). The generosity of the Council and all the volunteers, including performers, has meant that the music community has been able to get together regularly to learn, share and enjoy bluegrass & old-time music.
If this increase is difficult for you, please don’t stay away, just donate what you can – no discussion or explanation needed.
The next Sydney Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Get-together is on Saturday 6 August 2022 at the Annandale Community Centre, 79 Johnston St, Annandale.
