Campfire Stories Adelaide: Celebrations

Hosted by Adelaide Sustainability Centre


Campfire Stories is about people coming together and sharing a yarn and a bite to eat. Be prepared to be entertained and inspired by extraordinary true tales from ordinary Australians!

How it works: Come along and share a 5 minute true story related to the night's theme of "Celebrations". Prepare a 5 minute story about commemorating a special occasion. Times of joy, revelry and merrymaking or that special event that didn’t quite go to plan. Share with us your most memorable celebration.

There is no pressure to speak in front of the audience. People are just as welcome to come and listen to other people's stories.

The night will close with a shared supper so please bring a plate to share.

Entry is optional $5 donation at the door.

Event is open to all ages. Doors open 6:30pm for 7pm start.

This event is supported by the Adelaide Sustainability Centre and the Adelaide & Mt Lofty Ranges NRM Board.

Adelaide Sustainability Centre @ The Joinery, 111 Franklin Street, Adelaide SA 5000


  • If you have them: Sewing machines and an extension cord (just in case), sharp fabric scissors and/or pinking shears, straight edge steel ruler, pins, any spare fabric.
  • Please make sure all your items are clearly labelled so that nothing gets lost and if anything is left behind I can find the owner.

If you don’t have any of these things but are keen to help, there will be jobs for everyone. We will do another demonstration of how the bags are put together and then we will get on with making some. We will try to accomodate people who are keen to learn to sew - these bags are the perfect starting project.


Please let me know if you can come so that we know how many people to expect - don’t worry if you can’t come, there will be other opportunities.


Boomerang Bags aims to make our life a little bit less plastic, so please try not to use plastic bags or one-use coffee cups or water bottles. There is a kitchen with cups and there will be tea and coffee available. There may even be some morning tea!
