Lithgow City Council, in collaboration with the National Bushfire Recovery Agency continues to present a season of Live'n'Local community live music events. On Saturday 11th of July a small audience were treated to the sounds of young local artists Paige McNamara and Izzy Cobcroft followed by local duo Momentum.

While the artists and live audience got to enjoy the delicious tastes of Lithgow’s iconic Tin Shed, a virtual audience of over 500 got to enjoy the live streamed event from the comfort of their own lounge rooms.

“The arrival of Covid 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.

The series continues this week with a live stream from the historic and beautiful venue ‘the Foundations’ Willawa Street in Portland. Due to social distancing there is a strict limit of 50 audience members, this is a family friendly event with no alcohol allowed. First come first served so bring the kids down to celebrate the end of school holidays. There are heaters but you should still dress very warm and come for a night of music and fun. There will be a food van with coffee/tea, ice cream, hot chips and hot dogs available and you are welcome to bring a picnic if you prefer. The live stream will kick off at 7pm, audience welcome from 6:30pm.

For further information contact Council's Community Development officer Ali Kim on 6354 9999 or Centwest Entertainment on 0417464164.
