It's that time of year again, with the cold weather finally setting in and the end-of-financial-year mayhem quickly approaching. We've found a few ways to help beat the winter blues... Show your support for local author Joshua Pomykala at the launch of his debut novel 'The boy in Black' this Friday evening. Join us for an exciting series of workshops which are running alongside the Machines & Makers exhibition. Venture out for a night of magic and mystery in July, at Confessions of a Magician.
May? Already? Well...not quite! We are getting in a little early for this month because there is so much on. Tickets are still available (although they have been selling like hot cakes) for Hamish Newman and Laura van Rijn's fundraising recital for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Local artist Casey Thornton's debut solo exhibition opens at NEXIS, the circus-antics of The Purple People Show are coming to the Town Hall, and improv comedy show The Big HOO-HAA will be providing belly laughs for those over 18 years. There will be more music, more exhibitions and the Narrogin Repertory Club's performance 'The Pink Pearl' to keep you busy throughout May.
Through a series of exquisitely painted portraits that meticulously capture a range of people in various states of contemplative solitude, Narrogin artist, Casey Thornton, creates a rare opportunity for visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of their modern lives to relish a moment of peaceful calm and reflection.
