Spring Music in the Gardens is a free community music event presented by Friends of Williamstown Botanic Gardens , to celebrate relaxing with good music.

Organiser Sue Murray said the event is going to be a relaxing environment where people can come and listen to a variety of community music groups.

Some of the groups that will perform include the Williamstown Primary School Choir, Willin Wimmin, Ukelele Dolls, Newport Folk and Fiddle, Newport Community Choir and SingWest.

“We will have tables and activities set up for everyone to enjoy,” she said.

“We are just inviting people to come in, relax and listen to music; it is going to be great fun.”

The friends invite visitors to bring a picnic lunch, explore the nature table and conduct a plant challenge with your children.

“We are setting up a nature table activity for children to let people know about the friends, and I will have a few free gardening books for people to take away.

“People can come and go as they please, they can drop in and listen to some groups or stay for the whole thing.

Friends of the Williamstown Botanic Gardens host a range of events for the community , some of which include hosting speakers relating to the botanic gardens and the environment.

“Our aim is to support the gardens and encourage other people to learn about them, to love them, and for kids to enjoy being there.”

The event will take place in the Williamstown Botanic Gardens on Sunday, November 12 from 11am- 3pm.
