Our Friday night program is about to make Marburg come alive with festive celebrations.
Free admission commencing at 6.30pm.
On of the main features of the evening is the Art Show awards and opening. We will have a great range and variety of art on display in the residents’ building.
We will have live music all evening and this year we are thrilled to feature The Rivercity Steel Band from 8pm.
The Rivercity Steel Band started as a workshop run by the Australian Academy of Steel Drums. Our instruments, called Steel Pans, are formed from 45 gallon oil drums, traditionally made with a cannon ball and a log fire, now often with pneumatic machinery. The instrument originated in the Caribbean islands of Trinidad and Tobago, created by slaves who were allowed no other musical instruments. We play a range of music from popular songs to classical pieces to Trinidadian calypso, performing at markets and other functions. We are always on the lookout for new members, all you need is a sense of rhythm and fun! Check out our website at www.rivercitysteel.webs.com.
The Quilt challenge will be on display in the Anglican Hall with a great selection of traditional crafts.
This year we are featuring alfresco dining, with a great range of food to purchase. Also available will be wine sales and tasting , coffee and cold drinks.
Our merchandise stall will be open, don’t forget to check out our new range of items.
It is definitely a great family night out and will help you unwind and prepare you for a fantastic Saturday in Marburg!
Hope to see you all there.
