2019 Festival Program

Saturday, August 3rd

19:30 - Townsville Civic Theatre - Townsville

Festival Farewell Concert - Full Circle

Hosted by Christopher Lawrence

This is the moment we close the circle and bring everyone together for the last time. We opened the Festival with music by Coates and now his beautiful Sleepy Lagoon will let us gently drift off until 2020. Before that, you’ll hear some fabulous, rarely heard gems, but do get ready for a musical surprise! We have one last transformation in store and our Artistic Director can’t wait!
