April brings the iconic Eden Arts Mt Eden Chamber Music Festival to the Village Centre and we are getting busier with classes and events. Thank you to our supporters and groups who attended or put on classes and events in the Village Centre over the last two years for all their support and hard work.
Join the Compassionate Collective this Saturday 2 April from 10.30am to 12.00pm to ponder, “Who am I?”. One of the most beautiful things we can do as humans is to discover who we are, and what we have inside ourselves. At this free Workshop you will be able to learn, share and connect with like-minded people who are seeking to understand themselves and our beautiful world. More information is here.
Come and join us at the wonderful Mt Eden Village Craft Market here on Saturday 9 April from 9.30am to 3.00pm. You will have the opportunity to enter our Easter promotion. Every purchase goes in the draw to win this magnificent 40cm tall mixed chocolate bunny from Cara Telle at Telle Chocolate. We will also have students from Eliette’s Music Academy in Grafton entertaining us between 10.00am and 12.00pm, along with a fantastic line up of crafters with their hand made products. Facebook for more.
