Church Street Spring Fair – Distillation of Spring

The Church Street Spring Fair celebrates the season with a Friday evening of music, and seasonal food matched with locally distilled aperitifs and digestifs. The old-style Fair follows on Saturday at historic Grossmann and Brough Houses and St Mary’s Anglican Church.

The Church Street Spring Fair brings together like minded community groups in a celebration of spring in this historic precinct of Central Maitland.

Join us on the evening of Friday 13 October for a National Trust fundraiser, Distillation of Spring, with a focus on local and seasonal drinks and delicious food. Enjoy pre-dinner bubbles by Tulloch Wines and organ music in the magnificent Edmund Blackett designed St Mary’s Anglican Church, followed by canapes by Feast Catering, matched with locally distilled aperitifs and digestifs from Kawal Rock.

Saturday 14 October brings all the fun of the Church Fair at St Mary’s and the neighbouring National Trust’s Grossmann and Brough Houses. The Heritage Rose Garden turns 50 this year and will be in full bloom. There will be historic house and church tower tours, displays of vintage wedding outfits, produce and garden stalls, bonsai, community stalls and refreshments, as well as a marmalade competition and children’s games that will delight.
