Night under the gums
Who knew, that when you mention that Gilgandra’s going to host an evening of gourmet food, drink, and entertainment, that over half the population of Gil would turn up?
With a pulled lamb and gravy roll in one hand, and a beverage from the Armatree Hotel, the banks of the Castlereagh River was pumping on the night of Saturday April 10 . There was over 1000 in attendance. People from all over came to Gilgandra to enjoy a night of local food and treats.
Musician Sarah Leete got the night started with some country classics and original tunes. Ms Leete was stoked to see so many people finally
out and enjoying themselves.
With pop up stands from local
classics such as Armatree Hotel, Gilgandra CWA Evening Branch, Gilgandra Lions Club and Blue Sky Cheese Mendooran, the evening also brought in
various other small businesses from around the region for locals to
Ending the night on a bang, Stewart Barton along with Mick Bond and Johnny Barbra had the audience singing along with them, as they took to the riverside stage.
It was a successful end to a great night.
Locals and travellers were all thrilled to be able to enjoy their own backyard again with good food and company.
The free event was organised by Gilgandra Shire Council and supported by the NSW government’s Festival of Place - Summer Fund.
