Steady as she goes for Bright Autumn Festival
Organisers happy with the new events added over recent years
centre on the Saturday night after Gala Day and the poetry evening is another one we will continue,” Mr Holland said.
“We haven’t locked in the Buckland Valley Autumn Harvest yet but that’s one we are keen to have follow the Wandi Nut Festival again.
“The bush dance, Instameet, steel and woodwork workshops were all new the year before.
“Numbers were up at this year’s bush dance which was another great night and really well run and our Instameet has been incredibly successful with people getting to share their passion for photography.”
The Autumn Festival committee is however looking for a new programs coordinator after long-time volunteer Bev Schwarz retired from the role.
“What we’d like to do and have the program coordinator look at is new ways to get the program out to people at a lesser cost,” Mr Holland said.
“What we’ve been doing is spending a significant chuck of our budget on printing hundreds of programs each year but if we could cut those costs we might have more money to advertise the festival or to spend on entertainment and activities.” FESTIVAL FEATURE: The Bright Autumn Festival committee is taking suggestions for next year’s Gala Day parade.
