The Peter Allen Festival, has now been held and planning continues for this fantastic celebration of our famous son. Commencing Friday, 7 September 2018 there will be a variety of events rolling out over the weekend.
Tenterfield to Rio, Danny Elliot’s tribute cabaret to Peter Allen, will be held at the Tenterfield School of Arts at 7pm on Friday, 7 September with a matinee performance at 2pm on Saturday, 8 September.
Tickets for the two-hour shows are available online now at a cost of $39. You need to get in quick as tickets are limited to 200 per performance!
Tenterfield’s main street will be transformed into Peter Allen Boulevard from 8am to 5pm on Saturday. Closed to traffic and with shops remaining open, the street will be full of market stalls, workshops, entertainment and performance stages. The Tenterfield Farmers & Producers Market will relocate for the morning and visitors can enjoy the Tenterfield Horticultural Society’s annual Spring Flower Show.
On Saturday night, the Tenterfield Jam Session will fire up in the Tenterfield Memorial Hall with a licensed Aussie Burger Bar & Water Hole pop-up restaurant. The evening will feature a head-line band (yet to be announced) plus 15 local and regional performers with an Aussie favourites theme.
As this will be a licensed venue, entry is restricted to those 18 years and over with ticket sales restricted to 600 at $29. Again “you need to get in quick”.
Other festival events include the I Go to Rio Dinner on Thursday 6 September, Tenterfield Table Lunch on Saturday and Paddock to Plate Breakfast on Sunday. Finish off a great weekend in style, with the Peter Allen Story Music Supper Club at the Tenterfield Cinema & Theatre.
