Bands line up for va­ri­ety gig

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | WHAT’S ON -

AMNESTY Stanthorpe Ac­tion Group (ASAG) is pre­sent­ing its fourth an­nual Va­ri­ety Con­cert fea­tur­ing some of Stanthorpe’s best tal­ent.

On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 20, Too Much Fun, Dog Wood Three, Lee Williams, Heather Simp­son and Mark Carter will fill Stanthorpe Lit­tle Theatre with mu­sic and songs, many of which are fresh and orig­i­nal.

“The Va­ri­ety Con­cert is our an­nual fundraiser,” said ASAG pres­i­dent Peter Bur­ton.

“While Amnesty is a se­ri­ous cause, our Va­ri­ety Con­cert is en­ter­tain­ment, an

op­por­tu­nity to en­joy a spe­cial night out while sup­port­ing some­thing im­por­tant.

“For those who aren’t fa­mil­iar with Amnesty, the role of Amnesty In­ter­na­tional is to de­fend univer­sal hu­man rights where they have been de­nied – for ex­am­ple, by ar­rest, de­ten­tion, tor­ture and pun­ish­ment for ex­press­ing one’s rights, rights such as free­dom of reli­gion, speech, and seek­ing asy­lum from vi­o­lence,” Mr Bur­ton said.

The con­cert starts at 7pm. Please be seated early.

Tick­ets, avail­able at the door, are $15 for adults, $10 con­ces­sion and teens, and $5 for pri­mary school age chil­dren.

Chil­dren un­der five are free.

Com­ple­men­tary re­fresh­ments will be avail­able dur­ing in­ter­mis­sion.
