60th Anniversary Party in the Park

Nedlands celebrates 60 years as a city in 2019 – and you’re invited to celebrate!

The free Party in the Park takes place from 4pm-7pm, Sunday, 31 March, at Paul Hasluck Reserve with live music from The Chameleon Brass Band and Little Belle, food trucks, kids’ activities and more. On 1 July, 1959, Nedlands became the fourth city to be declared in Western Australia, after it was previously known as the Municipality of Nedlands and, before then, the Nedlands Road Board.

The Chameleon Brass Band plays from 4.15pm-5.30pm delivering music made for dancing with a sound based on the New Orleans re-birth style of jazz, mixed with funk and hip hop. Incorporating second line drum rhythms with funky horn lines, the band has a quintessential vibe and energy that radiates through the crowd.

From 5.45pm-7pm, Little Belle take to the stage… suave and sophisticated with a sassy edge, the band is made up of six highly sought-after Perth musicians. The dynamic group is determined to entertain with their uniquely versatile blend of musical styles from all genres, matched with a vivacious and classy attitude. 

Little Belle’s inimitable musical style has seen them perform at numerous corporate events including the Lexus Ball for Telethon, Polo in the City and Melbourne Cup at Ascot Racecourse. Their range covers everything from acoustic to rock and the stylings of Aretha Franklin, The B-52s, ABBA to Bruno Mars, Cold Chisel, Fleetwood Mac, Maroon 5, Michael Jackson, Missy Higgins and Pink. 

Paul Hasluck Reserve is located on the Esplanade, Nedlands.
