FESTIVAL NEWS - NOVEMBER 2021

Although Covid has affected some of our activities, there has been a lot going on over the past few months. A very successful AGM was held in August this year, with good attendance. The elected committee is… President - Peter Hopkins, Vice-President - Meredith Montgomery, Secretary - Margaret Lindquist, Treasurer - Maxine Redpath, Webmaster - Ian Redpath, Publicity - Heather Parker, Markets Co-ordinator - Maitie Hitchcock, Committee Members - Joel Atkinson, Meg Benbow, Shane Mills. In the immediate future, the Peterborough Players are preparing for the next season of three one-act plays to be presented in the Yongala Memorial Hall by the Peterborough Players in late November. This programme follows the successful (and entertaining) production last April of "Suppressed Desires" and "The Dear Departed" which was very well received. We have an expanded production team and many new, talented performers getting ready to "strut their stuff" on November 25 and 27. Please see the separate information poster in this edition of the Informer. Early booking is recommended. The Festival Committee is in full swing preparing for the Peterborough Art and Cultural Festival to be held over the 10 days or so commencing the weekend before Easter in April next year. The Festival Committee's main involvement begins with the first of the two Saturday Main Street Markets on April 9th, then April 16th. We are looking for some fit volunteers to help with the setting up and moving out on those two mornings. Please call Maitie Hitchcock on 0402 351 631 if you think you could help out. Please watch out for further details as they are finalised. It certainly promises to be a very full and varied Festival. Updating other activities… The Wireworks in the Goods Shed, (opposite the Railway Hotel) are open every Monday and Wednesday from 10.00am to 3.00pm. New members are always welcome, or please drop in if you want to see what happens there. It is certainly worth the visit and no experience is necessary. Work is underway on creative projects for next year's Festival Exhibition. Please direct enquiries to Meredith Montgomery (0438 313 193) The Peterborough Singers are champing at the bit to get rehearsing again. Due to government Covid restrictions, we have not been able to meet for rehearsals over the past few months, but we shall be ready as soon as we get the all clear. If you would like to come along and join in the music making when we can recommence, or if you have any general questions, please call 0411 537 884. We rehearse Wednesday Nights from 7.30 to 9.30. All are welcome to join. There is no audition. If you would like to be involved in the 2022 Peterborough Art and Cultural Festival, please contact our Secretary Margaret Lindquist on 0429 619 188. New members are always welcome. For updates on planning and events, please visit this sites Events & News pages regularly Cheers, Peter Hopkins (President)
