Organisers have deferred the inaugural mural festival to allow more time to secure sponsorships.ELAINE COONEY March 28, 2014 4:05am
The date for Rochester’s inaugural mural festival has been pushed from Melbourne Cup weekend to Labour Day weekend in 2015.
Committee 4 Rochester project officer Graeme Robertson said the postponement would allow the group to attract the sponsorship it needed and the event required much organising.
He said the festival needed $30,000 in sponsorship which would include prize money and setting up the mural boards.
He said the 2016 event would require sponsorship on a smaller scale.
The C4R decided the festival would be held at the site of the proposed Moore St redevelopment
Mr Robertson predicted the festival would give the town a huge economic boost.
He said the sister festival in Sheffield, Tasmania, attracted about 8000 people every year and he hoped the event in Rochester would be able to attract a similar crowd.
