Many festivals and events were cancelled last year, victims of the pandemic, but they are slowly emerging where social distancing can be managed. Mid-May sees the return of a fabulous event, the NOX Night Sculpture Walk, lighting up in Sydney's East over 3 nights.

Randwick Environment Park and wetlands are the place for a walk to enjoy the illuminated outdoor art gallery of sculptures lit up in the dark of night, thanks to some very talented students/artists from UNSW Art & Design.

Transforming the natural environment, the artworks will be installed to form a leisurely 1.5km loop walk, beginning and ending at the Randwick Community Centre, and they'll be powered and lit by renewable energy sources.

This pretty sculpture from a previous year gives a taste of the level of art you can expect

But that's far from all at this event. The after dark art continues in a different format from that of the NOX Night Cinema - a screening of short films and animations on rotation in the park's auditorium, made possible by students of the UNSW School of Arts and Media. Subjects include sustainability and ecological issues.

A diverse selection of food trucks will be onsite to cure hunger pains. They include the likes of Barbicrew (Brazilian BBQ), Wholly Schnitt, Algae Fine Food (organic Vegan), BIG Dave's Chippery, Hut Dog, Gelato Messina with their retro van, and many more.

Keep an eye out for Archie Rose Distillery and their bar full of spirits, wine and beer. It's here you can also learn more about this award-winning company, including their gin, vodka, whisky and spirits experiences.

Live entertainment and a DJ spinning tunes round out this free event, so come for a NOX (Latin for night) of art, stay for the fun and chill out under the stars on a bean bag as you enjoy this bushland reserve that was once part of the Randwick Army Barracks.
