How you can help!

You can create a 150th Birthday Bunting for the Town Hall. The City of Perth are asking individuals and community groups to create bunting, either embroidered, printed, or painted to be sewn joined together and displayed at the Town Hall for future celebrations and commemorations.

The Bunting will be added to the City of Perth Cultural Collections with the individual makers names recorded as a thank you for participating in this wonderful community initiative.
