Live'n'Local After the Fires

Posted: 2 Jul 2020
Lithgow City Council, in collaboration with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency is presenting a season of Live'n'Local community live music events beginning early July.

While most Live’n’Local events will be live-streamed, the first event will be prerecorded, due to Wi-Fi connectivity issues, on Friday 3rd July from our very own historic Collits Inn, and then streamed to a world-wide audience via Facebook on Saturday 4th July at 7:00pm.

“The arrival of Covid-19 has had major impacts on our communities but let’s not forget the bushfires that devastated us only months before,” said Lithgow City Council Mayor Ray Thompson.  “There are many still reeling in our community and struggling to recover from the disastrous fires on top of the recent droughts.”

While there is much work still to be done in rebuilding the lives of those effected by the bushfires, the Live'n’Local project is designed to bring the community back together to celebrate what is great about our communities and begin the process of healing and rebuilding together.

Performers will be local musicians who are also struggling in the wake of a year of natural disasters and each event will take place in a local venue, showcasing the talents of our local community as well as the amazing venues of the greater Lithgow region.

While there will be limited local residents in attendance - depending on government restrictions and social distancing, each gig will be live streamed to a virtual audience so anyone who wants to can join in and see the variety of talents on display. Contact venues directly for information on ticket availability.

For further information contact Council's Community Development officer Ali Kim on 6354 9999.
