To celebrate the Hornsby Heritage Awards, Council will be hosting an afternoon garden party complete with vintage-themed entertainment and activities.
It will be held in the beautifully restored heritage building Wallarobba Arts and Cultural Centre on Saturday 31 October, with food and exhibitions.
There will be a presentation for the winners of the Hornsby Heritage Awards, which acknowledge outstanding work in the community that helps to maintain places of historical significance or promotes heritage.
Partygoers can relax to the smooth sounds of Gramophone Man, a regular at events such as the Sydney Festival, who plays original shellac 78 records from the 1920s, 30s and 40s from his steam powered mobile DJ rig.
Historical groups from around Hornsby Shire will provide a glimpse into life as it was in times past, and there is also the chance to try writing with quill and ink, using washboards or playing old school games.
