Another sunny Jazz Picnic in the Gardens at Old Blythewood

The National Trust of Western Australia was delighted to hold the 2022 Jazz Picnic in the Gardens at historic Old Blythewood in Pinjarra on 2 October.

This event is a favourite in our calendar and this year it was delivered as part of the Western Australian Heritage Festival, supported by Lotterywest.

The spring sun shone on Sunday 2 October ensuring perfect weather for the 200 plus picnickers who came along to hear music provided by WAAPA Jazz students Isabel Sargon, Luke Geha, Isaac Reynolds and Joe Bell. There were many families in attendance and kids were kept busy with giant bubbles, face painting, lawn games and more.

The National Trust is lucky to have an incredible range of volunteers, and the Old Blythewood team did an amazing job ensuring the gardens looked their best for the event. They also served hot drinks, sold raffle tickets to raise funds for conservation works and provided house tours on the day.

The role of the National Trust is to conserve and interpret the heritage places we manage on behalf of the community and government of Western Australia. Thanks to Lotterywest, it is through events like this that we can raise awareness and appreciation of our state’s precious heritage.

Thanks to everyone who came along on the day to support us and have a great time. We hope we see you again next year!
