Walsh Bay is leading the way in raising money for the Sydney Children's Hospital Foundation.

Bar Cycle has gathered a group Walsh Bay Residents to participate in this years Pedal 4 Kids.  This is a 132km ride from Kiama to Sydney to raise funds for the Sydney Childrens Hospital.  The Walsh Bay Team "Barcycle" features as a "Top Team" fundraiser and has raised over $9,000 so far.  

16 May - 22 May: A highlight of the Walsh Bay Cultural Calendar is the Sydney Writers Festival.  The Festival brings a huge number of literary fans to the Precinct and provides an exciting week combining books, talks, lectures and great food.  

My Perfect Festival is a great way to enjoy a selection of the Artistic Director’s Festival highlights and relax between events at the SWF private lounge at Walsh Bay.

The Barangaroo Delivery Authority is soon to be deconstructing the Sydney harbour Control Tower.  In an effort to reduce the impact to Merriman St and Clyne Reserve and to reduce noise from the works, there will be a temporary closure of upper Clyne Reserve, including the playground. 

At this stage, it is expected that upper Clyne Reserve will be closed for at least five months from May until early October.

Tonkin Zulaikha has been appointed Tonkin Zulaikha Greer (TZG) to design the $139 million redevelopment of Walsh Bay Arts Precinct.

TZG was appointed through a selected tender process and will coordinate design across the precinct.

The redevelopment centres around two piers in Walsh Bay. Pier 4/5 will be redeveloped with upgraded spaces for the Sydney Theatre Company, Australian Theatre for Young People and Bangarra Dance Company. Pier 2/3, the last undeveloped pier in Walsh Bay, will be transformed into a new 450-seat auditorium for the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

The Federal Government has announced a $1 million contribution to the Bell Shakespeare capital campaign, which will help the company secure a permanent home at Sydney’s Pier 2/3.

The funding will be used to leverage other private donations for the capital campaign.

Minister for the Arts Mitch Fifield said, ‘Bell Shakespeare’s new facility will be a fitting tribute to its Founding Artistic Director John Bell AO, who retired from his role with the company at the end of last year.’

Commissioned by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, this 27 minute film explores the site's history, from project inception, through to precinct development. The film is told through interviews with people key to bringing Barangaroo into being, from designers and project teams to politicians and members of the public.
