It all started iN 2011...
when Creative Director, Alison Avron - a singer/songwriter in her own right - converted an ex-newsagent in Marrickville into a venue while trying to find a suitable space to release her debut EP. Finding none suited for a new artist, she embraced the challenge and her vocal teaching studio became, The Newsagency. The venue quickly evolved into a place dedicated to showcasing Australian independent artists in a comfortable listening environment. It has played host to such artists as Marlon Williams, NGAIIRE , All Our Exes Live in Texas and Brendan Maclean
Fast forward to 2016...
The Newsagency, in it’s 5th year, was one of 54 businesses around the country to be awarded a much needed share in the AMP Foundation’s Tomorrow Fund to upgrade the venue. However, the landlord didn’t want a piece of it and so, The Newsagency as we had all grown to know and love was forced to close it’s doors.
But there’s a happy ending…!
Thanks to the Inner West Council and some legend landlords, The Newsagency has been able to relocate above Wayward’s Brewery in Camperdown doubling in size and comfort for both artist and audiences. The future is looking bright .
