What wild weather we’ve been having lately! To help recover, I suggest kicking up your heels at any of the upcoming events in the region.
Let’s start it off with Pink Bowling, held on the last Friday of every month at Lismore Tenpin Bowling. It’s a guaranteed laugh and games start at 6.30pm.
On the eve of Halloween, the Freaks Come Out. Put on your scariest costume for a night of bent freakishness at the Winsome Hotel on 27 October – tickets are $10.
If you are looking for an easy Sunday recovery, get along to the Platinum Bar at the Lismore Workers Club for the legendary T-Dance, from 4pm on 28 October.
The town of Jiggi comes alive when the Radical Fairies present their fantastic annual Faerie Glitter Ball on Saturday 3 November at Jiggi Hall. Great music, food and performances, all for just $15.00. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
If you still want more, Saturday 10 November sees Sticky Lips, an exclusive women-only fetish event in Byron. Give Lipstick Productions a call on 0416 953 781 for tickets and details.
The Gay and Lesbian AIDS Memorial Concert (GLAM) has become a favourite event on the regional calendar. GLAM is a major fundraiser for ACON Northern Rivers and forms part of AIDS Awareness Week. GLAM will be held at Lismore City Hall on 29 November and tickets are on sale from Caddies Coffee, Happy High Herbs, The Bush Telegraph and ACON.
An Art Exhibition will take place at Serpentine Gallery, Lismore, during AIDS Awareness Week. Artists are invited to submit works, particularly people living with or affected by HIV. Exhibited artwork will be available for sale to the public. Contact ACON for details.
ACON Northern Rivers is also currently seeking volunteers to assist with World AIDS Day activities, so if you can donate some time, contact Sioux at ACON.
And finally, tickets are on sale for Tropical Fruits events Red Carpet, Splash, and Recovery. Visit www.tropicalfruits.org.au for details.
If you are wanting any information about groups, services, organisations or community events taking place in the Northern Rivers, you can contact ACON Northern Rivers on 02 6622 1555.
Dermot Ryan is the Community Development and Education Officer for ACON’s Northern River Branch.
