Cur­ryfest will roar this year!

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

THANKS to a Mul­ti­cul­tural NSW Cel­e­bra­tion Grant an­nounced by Min­is­ter Ray Wil­liams and sponsorship by Driscolls Berries, the out­door Bol­ly­wood movie on the beach will again be a fea­ture of Wool­go­olga’s Cur­ryfest next week­end.

“The movie will show af­ter sun­set (about 6pm) on Fri­day evening Septem­ber 22 at the Beach Re­serve, the per­fect lead into Cur­ryfest the next day,” Cur­ryfest Com­mit­tee Chair Pamela Fayle said.

Lo­cal pop-up film spe­cial­ists Screen­wave will be set­ting up the big screen and their fab­u­lous sound sys­tem and sev­eral stalls will be sell­ing food, drinks and ice-creams.

The movie this year is Lion, which is set in both In­dia and Aus­tralia and based on a true story.

“We’re invit­ing Coffs Coast lo­cals and vis­i­tors to Cur­ryfest to bring a fold­ing chair or cush­ion, buy some­thing at one of our fab­u­lous lo­cal cafes or from the ven­dors on the Re­serve, or just bring their own pic­nic to en­joy in front of the big screen.”

Thanks to the grant and lo­cal fes­ti­val sponsorship the movie night is a free event so put it in your di­aries now and check out www.cur­ryfest.com.au for de­tails of other Cur­ryfest events as the event draws closer.

“This year there are Flavours of Cur­ryfest restau­rant nights, the free out­door movie, the dance com­pe­ti­tions on main stage at Cur­ryfest, celebrity chef demon­stra­tions, in­clud­ing Spice Queen Chris­tine Man­field and Masterchef con­tes­tant Nidhi Ma­ha­jan, cook­ing classes in the week af­ter Cur­ryfest and the new ‘Eats on Mar­ket Street’ open air event on Satur­day Septem­ber 30 as part of the Cur­ryfest cel­e­bra­tions,” Pamela said.
