Slip slowly into autumn with a twilight picnic and live music at one of Bathurst’s finest historical homesteads.
Brucedale Homestead, one of the oldest family-owned properties in Australia, has seen seven generations of the Suttor family live and work from the property. The Suttor family have been welcoming people to their lawns for a public concert and picnic for well over 30 years now, and are pleased to be offering the venue once again as a highlight of the Autumn Colours program.
The event is co-ordinated by Bathurst Arts Council and is our major fund-raiser of the year, with proceeds going to fund the council’s Youth Arts Awards, the Bathurst Eisteddfod and the Bathurst Arts Trail. Held on the lawns of the spectacular Brucedale property, this concert is the highlight of the Bathurst region music calendar.
The live concert features local musicians, ensembles and bands. Take a picnic, rug and chair and enjoy this beautiful venue. Tickets available at the gate. Wet weather, listen to 2BS local radio for information.
