We all know farmers don’t take a day off… well, what about a night off

Tom Curtain will be playing in Braidwood

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council and a number of local groups are bringing multiple Golden Guitar winner and talented horseman, Tom Curtain, to the region to perform his award-winning show, Katherine Outback Experience at the Braidwood Showgrounds on Thursday 7 February 2019.

The Katherine Outback Experience won the best Tourist Attraction and best Visitor Experience Awards at the 2018 NT Tourism Awards is coming to drought affected areas of the state as part of a free concert experience.

”The vision was to give back to those who have been doing it tough and build resilience for the years ahead. More than 10 community organisations came together to bring this show to town and all funds raised will be donated back to local youth initiatives,” QPRC’s Program Coordinator, Events and Marketing Sara Wightman said.

Tom and his team will also visit Braidwood Central, St Bede’s and Bungendore Primary schools to talk to students about bullying and mental health concerns as part of the Dolly’s Dream foundation.  Dolly’s Dream was set up in memory of Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett, aged 14, who took her own life after an extended period of bullying and cyberbullying. 

So take a night off, grab the family and connect with some mates you might not have seen since the last good rain, all while supporting local youth.
