EVENT POSTPONED due to weather – there’ll be no event on Saturday 4 March 2017

Earlier this evening the forecast for Saturday 4 March became severe with certain heavy rain (100% chance). This is a great event. It brings thousands of our neighbours together for one huge moment of safe end enjoyable camaraderie, it’s valued by the event sponsors, its respected the performers, and, most importantly, it’s delivered by the local parents, caregivers and kids of Cherrybrook. That’s the type of event we want to deliver, and we can’t deliver that event, and offer the Cherrybrook community that experience, in this severe weather. So we’re postponing the event to later in the year and we’ll be back in Spring – the driest time of the year! – with the event we want to deliver for you: the biggest, funnest, and happiest evening of celebration for you, your family and your community. Watch this space for more news in coming weeks. … [more]

Cherrybrook 'Movie Under the Stars' and fireworks show on Saturday 4 March, 2017

HERE’S WHAT TO DO .. Come to John Purchase Oval for the event – that’s where the event was in previous years – and, if we’re using the wet weather option, follow the sealed/concrete path past the oval to John Purchase School and the large covered outdoor open area at John Purchase School which has a covered large flat performance area with covered stadium style seating around it. … and we’ll all enjoy this great event! This wet weather option area is only 60 seconds walk from the oval and we’ll have volunteers who will direct you. If the weather improves, we’ll see you outdoors at John Purchase Oval, and, if not, we’re see you at the large sheltered/covered outdoor area at John Purchase school only 60 seconds away. IF WE USE THE WET WEATHER OPTION, WHAT ELSE CHANGES?
