What the heck is a WAYZGOOSE?

Wayzgoose was originally an entertainment given by a master-printer to his workmen to mark the beginning of the season of working by candlelight. In later use, it meant an annual festivity held in summer by the employees of a printing establishment, consisting of a dinner and (usually) an excursion into the country. In more recent times it has become a celebration held by printing and printmaking studios/communities where artists, craftspeople, technicians and printers get together to celebrate their work with their friends and families. (Cited from NERAM)

Where is Bright Press?

Bright Press is located within the Village section of Whiteman Park. You can enter from the Drumpellier Dr/ Lord St and Beechboro Road entrances. Please be aware, there is a tonne of roadworks surrounding the park at the moment. If you are using Google Maps to find us, please type in "Bright Press" as it has been pinned. The Bright Press building doesn't actually have a street name or number.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We recommend driving to join us at the Wayzgoose, as there is no public transportation into Whiteman Park. There is plenty of parking around the Village section of the park.
