May 2022

Dear all,

We have an exciting month of May here at the Village Centre.  With events every weekend and lots of classes, you are spoilt for choice. Make sure you check out the kids May Music Carnival, a must for parents and caregivers!

Village Music kicks off the 2022 Winter Season with the Jonathan Crayford Quartet on Friday 6 May at 8.00pm. Jonathan is one of our most prominent pianists and composers and will be joined by Frank Talbot on Tenor sax, Hank Trenton on double bass and Maximilian Crook on drums. We’re in for a great night with the coolest jazz in town. A Village Music Soirée is a perfect occasion to really enjoy a good ‘listen’ and BYO your favourite tipple. Click here now to book.

The Village Centre continues to hum with Artists in Eden the next day. On Saturday 7 May artists will make work “live” in the Village Centre from 10.00am to 2.00pm. There will be a Live Auction at 2.30pm where you have the chance to bid for these coveted works. Proceeds help to fund the Eden Arts programme of activities. More information is here.

Come and join us at the wonderful Mt Eden Village Craft Market here on Saturday 14 May from 9.30am to 3.00pm. MAY IS BABY MONTH AT MT EDEN CRAFT MARKET. Make a purchase from any of their stallholders to enter the draw for this fabulous baby box valued at $100. Find the contributors; Macska House, Little Owl Knittery, Gran’s Knits, Naturally Herbal, Hemmingbird, Stitchgirl and Embroidered Love. Facebook for more.

For the little people in our lives who have missed out on many events, our Trust and supporters present the May Music Carnival on Saturday 21 May. With a series of mainly seated and ticketed performances to give parents and caregivers more confidence about a safe environment, we’re bringing a fun filled morning of magic, music and swashbuckling to Mt Eden!! Popular performers Le Cirque de JP, Little Ripples and Captain Festus McBoyles Travelin Variety Show will be here so book your tickets here and come along and enjoy the fun!!!! Tickets are extremely affordable at $5.00 each or $10.00 for a family of four for each performance.

If you’re in the Village this weekend, consider attending the Mt Eden Chamber Music Festival as limited door sales are available.  And the Compassionate Collective are here tomorrow morning 30 April from 10.30am to 12.00pm to ponder “The Tao of Transformation“. More information is here.
