Greytown Arts Festival 2012

The 8th Greytown Arts Festival has drawn to a successful close.

The streets of Greytown were filled with festival goers over the Labour weekend enjoying the "Last Piece" art exhibition at the Town Hall, the family Treasure Hunt and watching the amazing Tape Art mural coming to life on the side of the Fresh Choice market.

Over 700 pieces of canvas art were joined together to create the stunning community quilt displayed in the Town Hall.
The puppet play, The Kitchen at the End of the World, enjoyed a sold out festival season and enchanted audiences with it's poetic theme and amazing marionettes.

Music lovers had their pick of events from the Beat Girls lively and entertaining show and The Yoots had the whole audience on their feet and singing along to their blend of bright brass sound and their take on Maori waiata. Urban Tramper delivered their electric groove to an intimate and appreciative audience.

Jazz lovers enjoyed a perfect sunny afternoon in the garden and enjoyed Steve Carlin's renditions of classic Frank Sinatra and 50's classics, while the From Fugues to Finales concert provided for Classical music fans.

The spoken word was well covered when nine poets took to the streets and read their works at the Town Hall. Glistening Waters storytellers enchanted young and old bringing story to life.

The Tangle Community Dance group brought more than a few tears to the eyes with the poignant dance piece, Sylvie's Last.

All in all another great festival!  

Grateful thanks to all those who worked so hard to bring the festival to life and the sponsors who made it possible.
