Special live streamed performances from Ulumbarra
Bendigo Venues and Events will present The Way Back, a special free event featuring some of Greater Bendigo’s best musicians, that will be live streamed from the main stage of Ulumbarra Theatre.
The Way Back will feature local favourites Four Lions, alongside colourful Bendigo songstress Sherri Parry and legendary troubadours Chris and Josh De Araugo.
The Way Back is the first in a series of performances and events designed to reactivate Bendigo’s premier theatres and entertainment spaces throughout the coming months.
Bendigo Venues and Events Manager David Lloyd said COVID-19 restrictions had been challenging for the local music industry.
“We’re really pleased to be able to invest in local musicians during this difficult time and to be able to present a high-quality performance for the wider community,” Mr Lloyd said.
“Our online performances are providing great opportunity for our staff and venues to build operational readiness for reopening, as well entertainment for our audience.
“Our team has been working with industry peak bodies while taking advice from DHHS and State Government in relation to the safe re-activation of our venues.
“We look forward to a time in the future when we will be in a position to see audiences return to our spaces, subject to government restrictions.”
The Way Back will be broadcast on the Ulumbarra Theatre Facebook page from 7pm on Sunday July 19.
