Newtown Unplugged

Earth Hour 2013

Earth Hour is a global environmental initiative in partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). Marrickville Council has proudly supported Earth Hour since its launch in Sydney in 2007.

On Saturday 29 March 2014 at 8.30pm, individuals, businesses, governments and communities are invited to join millions of people across the world by tuning off their non-essential lights for one hour to show their support for environmental action.

Newtown Unplugged

Get into the spirit with Newtown Unplugged, an evening of candlelight and acoustic music.

Find a participating restaurant on the Unplugged Map or select from the list below, then call to book in your dine in the dark experience.

Post on Facebook from your location using the hashtag #NewtownUnplugged during Earth Hour to go into the draw for one of three $50 gift vouchers for the Green Living Centre.

And for some fun before the Hour, come to the Green Living Centre on King Street and make your own candle, Saturday 29 March, 2.00pm – 3.30pm.

Newtown Unplugged is a joint initiative of the Green Living Centre and the Newtown Precinct Business Association.
