EXPLORING NED KELLY LEGACY
NO matter what your viewpoint is of infamous bushranger Ned Kelly, there is an activity for everyone during Ned Kelly Weekend.
The weekend coincides with the anniversary of the 1880 committal trial, which took place 135 years ago this year.
The event, which is run by the Beechworth Historical Reenactment Group, will be held in Beechworth from August 7-9.
Activities will include a siege re-enactment on Saturday night, reenactments of Ellen and Ned Kelly’s trials, and more.
Sunday’s schedule will include another Ned Kelly trial re-enactment, as well as a fascinating talk by speaker Greg Blake, author of Battle of Eureka.
Cast and crew of the film The Last Outlaw will also be involved in events on the weekend.
There are also surprise speakers planned.
