Mayor’s Message – 10 December 2019

Following on from Friday’s windy weather, the re-scheduled annual Devonport Christmas Parade will happen on Wednesday night, 11 December, from 6.30 p.m.

This year the parade will traverse a route taking in James Street, Victoria Parade, Bluff Road and Clements Street.

With a range of local floats entered by businesses, schools and community and sporting groups, it is a perfect way to kick off the festive season in Devonport.

And, of course, Santa will be there to wish all a very Merry Christmas.

So, bring the whole family for this fabulous event.

There will also be a Christmas Market on the corner of Bluff Road and Clements Street from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m.


It will be a busy evening tomorrow night.  The paranaple arts centre – home of the Town Hall Theatre and the Devonport Regional Gallery – will launch its 2020 program of exhibitions and performances at 6pm.

The full 2020 program will be unveilled and it is set to be an exceptional year-long season of cultural events for the North-West Coast.

It offers an exciting mix of major Australian performing arts and touring exhibitions, exceptional award-winning performance and plenty of high-quality local productions and exhibitions.

Included in the offering will be a critically acclaimed stage production of George Orwell’s intensely powerful novel Animal Farm by the shake & stir theatre company.

The Gallery will be presenting the biggest program in its four-decade history, featuring work by some of Tasmania’s leading contemporary artists.

The launch is also an opportunity to get a glimpse of the year ahead and a chance to become a member and book premium seats to any number of performances.

The launch will be followed by complimentary refreshments in the Main Gallery.

It is a free event and anyone who would like to attend can RSVP to 6420 2900 , [email protected] or [email protected]
