The final Autumn leaves are falling as we welcome winter in Glen Innes Highlands. Our winter is a spectacular time with clear blue skies during the days and nights by warm open fires. Once again, we will be keeping a close eye on the weather radar as we wait in anticipation for the possibility of witnessing a magical dusting of snow. Get out and about and explore our parklands, local reserves, state forests and national parks as they transform into a winter wonderland.
This June will be bustling with activity, we have plays, markets, comedy, shows, exhibitions and are getting set for a jam-packed Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend, 11th to 14th June with exciting experiences for locals and visitors. GlenRock, Gemorama and the New England Alpaca Show, Artists in Residence and three unique markets to name a few of the events along with our galleries, retail shops and our delicious food and accommodation providers ready to extend a warm welcome and give you a taste of that special country hospitality. Call into the Glen Innes Visitor Information Centre for inspiration and information, we are excited to welcome you to our town and villages and help make your visit truly memorable.
There are many new events and regular attractions that you can explore in Glen Innes in June.
Artisans of the Glen
If you are looking for new experiences and places to go in Glen Innes, Artisans of the Glen have reopened but only on Mondays from 10am to 3pm. This is the home of the 94 year-old carding machine and is still in use to process Alpaca fibre. A fascinating look into the intricate weaving processes still in place today. Hand crafted items for sale too.
The Croft Celtic Cultural Learning Centre and Cafe is open from 8.00am to 4.00pm (closed Wednesdays). This iconic Glen Innes space has had a revamp into a cosy and comfortable place to meet friends and immerse in Celtic languages and learning.
The Deepwater Players
If you are looking for a great night out, The Deepwater Players are back with an 'irreverent night of Music Hall frivolity'. The newly refurbished Deepwater School of Arts will be transformed into East London's faded Whitechapel Theatre, a pantomine with a twist, the night will take you back to the Music Hall days of old, lots of music and dance. This is a fundraising extravaganza not to be missed with dinner and show options from 28 May until 5 June, 2021.
Tickets available at Carelles 67321997 or Deepwater PO 67345369.
