In the next fortnight, Camden’s Larkin Place will certainly live up to its title of #ThePlaceToBe.

A number of interesting activities are on the cards including Lunar New Year celebrations, live music at lunchtime and craft for the children.

“I’m so pleased the temporary transformation of Larkin Place in Camden is allowing us to hold such great activations and allowing our residents to create such beautiful memories,” Mayor of Camden, Therese Fedeli said.

“Personally, I’m looking forward to heading down there to enjoy some music during the Lunchtime Jam sessions – they sound like bliss!”

The program includes:

  • Lunchtime Jams, held on every Tuesday in January, 11.30am-2.30pm, where residents can get some takeaway food and enjoy live music performed by local talent.
  • Yarn Bombing on Saturday 21 and Monday 23 January, 10am-1pm. Textile artists and knitting groups across the Camden area are invited to add a pop of colour to Larkin Place.
  • Plaster Painting on Tuesday 24 January, 10am-1pm. Residents are encouraged to get creative during the school holidays and paint their own plaster piece with Lisa Diamond-Coorey from Cobbitty Gallery.
  • Storytime in Larkin Place on Wednesday 25 January 2023, 9.30-10.30am. Camden Library invites children aged between three and five years to a much-loved Storytime session out at Larkin Place.
  • Lunar New Year Music and Lantern Making on Tuesday 31 January, 3-5pm. In celebration of Lunar New Year, school-aged residents have the opportunity to join local artist Jo Wong Hoyee after school to create and decorate Chinese paper lanterns, to the sounds of traditional Vietnamese instruments performed by Minh Ha Patmore from Viet Bambooz.
