The Roomies Artspace tent was open through the day in the Local Village area, with demonstrations, art classes and a drawing competition.
In 2009, the weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was great. As usual the Festival had a varied and interesting program of events from the Dog Show and Writers Tent to the multiple stages for music and performance.
80,000 people had a fabulous time, with 280 market and food stalls and environmental and art workshops (incl Roomies!)
Some performances weren't on the program but Newtown Festival is a true community event!
