The Four Winds Easter Festival and the Bermagui Historical Society have teamed up to gather local stories, artifacts and photos of Bermagui’s heritage as a busy centre for fishing from the 1940s to the present day.
The project is centered around Lady Jane – a disused Bermagui fishing boat currently lying on the Bermagui Industrial Estate.
The Lady Jane team is inviting the community to take part in an upcoming free community activity day and also seeking expressions of interest from performers in the region to be part of the opening night concert of the Four Winds 2019 Easter Festival.
On Saturday, February 23 in the Bermagui Community Centre hall, Bermagui there will be a creative day inspired by the Bermagui fishing boat Lady Jane.
From 10am you will hear about the history of Lady Jane from the historical society, then from 10.30am to 4pm there will be painting/making bunting and other activities led by local artists from the Salt Water Collective.
The artwork created will then form part of the free community concert on Dickinson Oval, Bermagui as part of the Four Winds 2019 Easter Festival.
If you like to perform, local choreographer Lee Pemberton will be forming an adult dance company to also take part in the free community concert on Easter Friday alongside world-class musicians.
Come along to the first workshop on Sunday, February 24 from 11am to 1pm at the Bermagui Community Centre hall to meet Ms Pemberton and director Sam Thomas. All adults are welcome.
