Inaugural Black Night Feast Planned for the Old Portland Cement Works

A new satellite event for Lithgow Halloween is sure to have everyone celebrating their dark side.

The Foundations, on the site formerly occupied by the Portland Cement Works, has become a tourist destination in recent months since the painting of the silos by world famous artist, Guido Van Helten.

As the site has continued to be redeveloped early activations have included very successful indoor markets, and morning teas for touring groups.

However, the creative team behind the redevelopment and activation of the site decided it was time to do something a little different.

The Black Night Feast is the first event of its kind at the site, a night time ticketed event bringing together a world class entertainment program, amazing fire roasted meats served feasting style on long tables. All this will happen in a space decorated by veteran event creatives, bringing you an event that the organisers believe will ‘blow everyone’s mind’

“What we are creating is not your typical ball or night out, you can expect to have your senses assaulted as soon as you walk through the door,” said Rich Evans, the Chief Reactivation Officer for The Foundations and the event creator.

“We have some of the best performers in the country coming up for the event including burlesque performers, magicians, sideshow entertainers and an amazing band that will make this event worth it for the entertainment alone,” said Rich

Those performers include Miss Kelly Ann Doll, undeniably one of Australia’s leading ladies of Burlesque. With more titles under her belt than a heavy weight champion, her diversity and passion for her art has seen her sky rocket her way to successful career in not only the Burlesque arena, but as a producer, teacher and creative director to some of the Nation’s leading events companies and clientele.

Joining her will be former Venice Beach Freakshow Wild Woman and Snake Lady, Marlena Dalí is now Australia’s own circus sideshow darling. A multi-instrumentalist and more with skills ranging from magic, mime, death-defying stunts, cutting wit, and effortless charm (all in exquisite costuming), she is a whole vaudeville show in 1 clown!

The night will take a magic turn with amazing magician Bannister, who has captivated audiences across Sydney and most of Australia for over 8 years, performing his unique style of magic. Having entertained in various shows around Australia, Bannister promises to leave you shocked, astounded and in awe by his brand of mystical entertainment.

Rounding out the entertainment at the Black Night Feast is the amazing band and MC of the night, Michael Wheatley and the Dirty Carpet Disco Band!! The coolest disco band this side of the equator  will pleasure your ear drums with sultry classics throughout the meal, but get ready to tear up the dance floor after dinner as things really heat up!

“We expect people to be blown away literally from the second they walk through the gates, with all the buildings lit up, projection displays, fire pits and entertainment from the very beginning of the night,” said Rich.

“This is not the typical event you would see in this region, but at the Foundations we are looking to push the envelope and build our site to attract people from far and wide,” he added.

There is also a shuttle bus on the night to bring guests to the site and a return trip at the end of the  evening.
