Open Day at Z Ward wins huge crowd
More than 5 000 people turned up at Z Ward today to see inside this amazing building.
Unfortunately we were unable to accommodate the demand, even though we showed 200 people in before the 9 am opening and stayed open an additional hour till 1 pm. We managed to get more than 2 500 people through, before we had to turn people away. Fortunately Beach Energy have been kind enough to offer a second Open Day, proposed for Saturday, November 15. Those who missed out and provided email addresses will be offered priority access to that event. Those who wish to pre-register should sign up to the Heritage Watch newsletter (Go to the homepage and click ‘Get Updates’ at the top right). The email newsletter will keep you informed about other heritage news and events also. You can find out more about Z Ward here.
Thank you to all of you who turned out today and for your interest in saving our heritage. Apologies to those who missed out today. And a big thank you to Beach Energy and the volunteers from the National Trust and Glenside Hospital Historical Society who made today’s event possible. At last, the public got to see inside this remarkable building.
