What is Head to Surry Hills?


Head to Surry Hills is a neighbourhood brand, designed to bring all local events, promotions and big ideas together under one iconic banner, brought to you by the Surry Hills Business Partnership. We are your new go-to for everything happening in Surry Hills: all events, promotions and local knowledge are in one place and accessible to all community members, businesses and promoters who want to get involved.


HTSH aims to streamline and encourage community engagement through a branded, locally focused campaign. Think of the big Sydney events such as Mardi Gras Festival or Sydney Festival; in the same way that diverse acts and companies come together under these brands, local businesses, promoters and event organisers are able to register online under the Head to Surry Hills brand, be featured and listed on the website and benefit from the strategic campaign marketing.


The aim is to get as many community members, businesses and retailers involved as possible to bolster our neighbourhood as Sydney’s creative hub and support economic and community health.


From live music shows, artistic performances, markets and gallery exhibitions, to local school events, targeted business offers and locally focussed retailer promotions, Head to Surry Hills is driven by community members to benefit everyone – and we mean everyone.


What’s happening this month?


From Saturday 20th February through to Sunday 7th of March, with the support of the City of Sydney, Head to Surry Hills will promote events, offers, art and performance activations including Local Rewards offers and discounts, Picnic Surry Hills, Poetry Sydney events, a series of night-time projections and public art installations, self-guided walking tours, and many other events to be announced in partnership with local businesses, groups and individuals.
