Artstate Bathurst | Artstate Dinner & Saturday Festival Club

19 Dec 2018 /

As the sun went down on Saturday, the Artstate night owls came out to play. At the Carrington House, the Artstate Dinner kicked off with none other than Bathurst’s Rusty Nails as cabaret hostess. Down at the Festival Club there was music and the Junkyard Circus Mumming Extravaganza to keep revellers entertained late into the night.
