Re-live infamous event
THE Warwick Railway Station will be transported back in time to 1917 this weekend.
Flying eggs from dissidents and a fuming Billy Hughes will entertain the gathered crowd with a full re-enactment of the events of that infamous day, that led to the naming of the Warwick Incident.
Re-enactment producer Clare McHugh Von Stieglitz said the action would take place from 2pm.
“The event at the railway station starts at 1pm, with a welcome from mayor Dobie,” she said.
“There will be live music from various bands and choirs, and vintage cars, heavy horses and more.”
At 2pm the steam train carrying Prime Minister Billy Hughes, played by Peter Von Stieglitz, will arrive.
Mrs McHugh Von Stieglitz said the production had come together after a slow start.
After the re-enactment, a plaque commemorating the event will be unveiled.
