Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you’d be hard pressed to find a more romantic gesture than reserving a table for two at one of Walsh Bay’s many fine restaurants.

The Gantry Restaurant and Bar on Pier One and Seawall are getting in the mood with stunning custom menus for Saturday February 14th.

Pull up a deckchair and enjoy what magnificent Harbourside Walsh Bay does best good food, fine wine and an amazing performing arts showcase.

'Deckchair Arts' is where you can enjoy the afternoon with a vibrant line up of music, performance and dance. Guests will be surprised by a collection of vignettes from a wide range of performers that come together to create a magical experience including Aboriginal dance, performance poetry and didgeridoo.

Legible and easily understood pedestrian or so-called ‘wayfinding’ information is critical to ensure people can confidently find their way around the city – an issue particularly critical in the Walsh Bay area.

Responding to this need, The City of Sydney recently completed installation of a pilot wayfinding program.

The talented performers from Bangarra Dance Theatre mark the end of the company’s quarter of a century celebrations on a fittingly high note with their latest theatrical production - Page 8.

The show chronicles the highs to the devastating lows in the life story of award-winning Australian performer and composer David Page.

If looking for a show with wow factor Shen Yun - China’s premier classical dance act, fits the bill and the company is heading to Sydney for ten shows in February 2015.

As part of its Performing Arts World Tour, Shen Yun returns to Sydney’s Capitol Theatre for a short season running from February 6-15th.

 As a Walsh Bay Arts and Commerce (WBAC) Chamber member you may be aware of the vital work, at a local level, business chambers do.

The NSW Business Chamber plays a similar role but on a larger scale. According to the statewide organisation it “helps all businesses from small enterprises to maximise their business potential”.

If you own or run a small business and think you might benefit from professional business advice or mentoring, Small Biz Connect could be the answer.

In a recent joint initiative between the City of Sydney and the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner, low cost business advice is now readily available to inner city businesses through the program.
