The annual Liverpool Plains Shire International Women’s Day event will be held on Friday 8 March, from 6.30pm, at the Royal Theatre in Quirindi. International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world and the theme for 2019 is Balance for Better, reminding us that everyone has a part to play, all the time, everywhere, building a gender-balanced world.
Well known entertainer and 2TM broadcaster, Sally-Anne Whitten, will be MC, one of the night’s special guest speakers as well as sharing a song with those in attendance. Two other guest speakers are currently being finalised and will be announced shortly, as will ticketing arrangements which will be available via the Royal Theatre’s website http://www.quirindiroyaltheatre.com/. Zest catering will be providing a grab-and-graze supper and the bar will be open during the event.
“This is one of the major annual events of the LPS calendar and always a popular one. It provides an opportunity to network and socialise with like-minded people. The speakers are always of a high calibre with interesting stories to share,” said LPSC Mayor, Councillor Andrew Hope.
“International Women's Day is a global day and across the LPS we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of local women, while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance which is essential if our economy and community are to thrive,” he said.
“Put March 8 in your diary and come along and celebrate the massive role women of the LPS play and their many achievements,” Councillor Hope concluded.
Tamworth born and bred, Sally-Anne Whitten says” Performing, writing and recording is where I am meant to be... my place in the world.” She recently won Most Popular Female Artist and Most Popular Independent Album at the Indie Country Music Australia awards in Tamworth.
