Kicking off on Good Friday with a Binda Experience, Walk with the Cross from Binda Shops to St James Church. Everyone will have a chance to carry the Cross if they choose. A simple service at the Church will follow. Then stay for loaves and fishes (fish burgers) and a cup of tea. Be involved with the Easter Good Friday celebration commencing Friday, 15 April at 11:00am


In the evening at 6:00pm on Good Friday Light up Crookwell will commence. This will include lighting of trees, buildings and gardens from Council Chambers to the central main street of Crookwell between Spring St & Roberts Street. This event will occur nightly through until Easter Monday from 6-11pm.
