Just a reminder about the Spring Tea Dance next Sunday 22 September, 1.30pm for 2pm-4.30pm in the St James Trust Building (Level 1, 160 Castlereagh Street, Sydney).
We have an important note regarding transport on the day: the Sydney Spring Running Festival is on that morning, including the Sydney Marathon, Half Marathon and Fun Runs. As a result, the Harbour Bridge, Bradfield Highway and Cahill Expressway will be closed 4am to 11am. Many CBD streets will be closed until 1.30pm, with others (including Castlereagh St) being designated special event clearways until that time. See http://www.sydneyrunningfestival.org/ which has a link to a PDF map, and http://m.livetraffic.rta.nsw.gov.au/Incident.aspx?id=442341 for maps & info about road closures and clearways.
We urge you to come along – especially by train, as walking from Town Hall station is the best option. (Please check bus timetables for alterations due to road closures.) See 131500.com.au for up to date information.
If you’d still prefer to drive, allow extra time, and see http://www.wilsonparking.com.au/go/regions/sydney-city-south for Sunday $10 – $15 flat rate CBD parking options.
Let’s celebrate the Spring in a more elegant – if somewhat less energetic – manner! Or you could always follow that run with Tea and Trabucchetti. Either way, we looking forward to seeing you there!
Fiona & John.
