Comedy to provide St Arnaud relief
A Rotary for Drought Relief free comedy event will be in St Arnaud Town Hall on June 15.
Organisers have promised ‘a night of fun and laughs’ after what was a difficult harvest season for many farmers in the area.
Comedy for Drought Relief will start at 5.30pm and has been designed to allow people affected directly or indirectly by drought to get together and have a good time.
Rotary clubs of St Arnaud, North Balwyn and Balwyn and the Australian Institute of Comedy are putting on the event, which features renowned comedians Marty Fields, Bev Killick and Elliot Goblet.
Former Cop Shop television star Gregory Ross will host the event. Bookings are essential and people can book a seat via website www. trybooking.com/498785 or at St Community Resource Centre in St Arnaud.
Food and drinks will be available for purchase while there will also be a competition for adults and students to present their own comedy routine with major and minor prizes up for grabs.
Anyone keen to enter the competition can call Russell Steel at St Arnaud Community Resource Centre on 0455 133 498 or at russell[email protected] gmail.com. For people with young children, free childcare will be available at St Arnaud Early Learning Centre for the duration of the event.
