  2. Graham Bricknell Music Shell closed for cleaning ahead of bumper events season

Published 13 November 2023

Every year before Bunbury’s event season kicks off, the City closes the Graham Bricknell Memorial Music Shell for maintenance and cleaning to allow our community groups to run their events.

With the Bunbury Pridefest Fair Day set to be the first major event at this community space this
weekend, the music shell will be closed from Monday 13 November.

This allows our staff less than five days to get in and undertake maintenance, including cleaning,
repairs, painting and minor upgrades so the space is suitable for events.

As happens every year, fences will be erected to allow this work to be done as quickly as possible.
To the best of our ability and with support of local outreach agencies, the City provided advanced
notice of the closure both verbally and with a flyer to community members known to frequent this
area and provided details of local support services.

The City also collected any non-hazardous items left in the area and will keep them safe until they are
ready to be picked up.

The City continues to support the State Government’s Housing First Strategy while also advocating
and working with local agencies regarding the broader and very complex issue of homelessness.

  • We have put in place a number of initiatives and actions to help on behalf of our residents where we
    can, such as community lockers and hot showers at Queens Gardens.

    We are also hopeful the City’s recently implemented Community Safety and Crime Prevention Plan
    along with our involvement in the Rough Sleeper Coordination Group will help.

    For now, we look forward to Bunbury’s summer events season providing a number of family-friendly,
    fun and exciting events our entire community can enjoy.
