Burrum Coal Discovery Festival

Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July.

April 2013 will be the 150th anniversary of the discovery of coal in Howard/Torbanlea by the Miller Brothers.

We will be celebrating this anniversary on 20 & 21 July 2013 with:

  • Street Parade
  • Historical Displays and Demonstrations of oldtime skills
  • Historical Tours around town in horse & buggy
  • Businesses & volunteers dressed in period clothing
  • Descendants of the early families family reunions
  • Burying of Time Capsule
  • Combined Church Service
  • A glimpse of Coal Mining, then, now and in the future
  • Old time and modern sports events
  • Museum -Billy Tea & Damper
  • Vintage car, truck , tractor & machinery displays
  • Old Time Dinner dances.
  • Swap Meet

Party Supplies Now

We would love all clubs, associations, businesses, groups, churches and schools to get involved by decorating a float for the street parade and dressing in period costume.

Schools could teach the children the history of coal mining and the history of our area, have colouring competitions, projects etc. This would enable them to appreciate the significance of this historical event.

We encourage clubs and groups to host their own

(in theme) events and raise valuable funds for their group.

The Committee are open to ideas and assistance to make this festival a combined community event encompassing the entire Burrum District.

Please advise us by Wednesday 27th March 2013 if you will be entering a float in the parade or are interested in any of the above activities.  We need to know specifically what you will be doing as we may need to acquire the appropriate permit e.g. street parade numbers etc or if you have another attraction you would like to put on we would like to hear about it.

You can post your expression of interest to PO Box 23, Howard Qld 4659 or email to [email protected] for the attention of Anne Worsley.

We look forward to working with you for this historical event and hope to make the Festival a huge success for our area.  We would love this to become either an annual or bi-annual event.

FRASER COAST FILM FESTIVAL ON SHOW AT THE BROLGA THEATRE MARYBOROUGH

FRASER COAST RUNS A FILM FESTIVAL AT THE BROLGA THEATRE

AUSTRALIA’S leading short film festival Flickerfest will roll into the Fraser Coast’s Brolga Theatre on March 13.

A record 2300 entries were received for Flickerfest 2013 and only the top 100 shorts are selected in official competition, all handpicked to represent the most innovative, creative and cutting edge short films being produced in the world today.
Lifestyle Clotheslines

Flickerfest’s 46-venue national tour will screen entertaining, inspiring and an award-winning range of shorts, many of which are world or Australian premieres, giving local Flickerfest audiences the first look at the hottest short films in the world.

The Best of Australian Shorts program showcases some amazing Australian filmmaking talents and includes Lois, starring Academy Award nominated acting legend Jackie Weaver, which takes an ordinary women’s story into the realms of Greek myth.

A Cautionary Tale will screen at Flickerfest.

Another highlight is the quirky and highly crafted animation A Cautionary Tale about a little girl born with a peculiar quirk who must choose between conformity and self expression, starring the voices of David Wenham, Cate Blanchett and Barry Otto.

The Best of International programs are a collection of the most outstanding shorts in the world and include the delightful and whimsical Route 43 Miracle from Sweden, a humorous and bittersweet tale about a lonesome Swedish man’s longing for something worthwhile and the quirky and hilarious Herd Leader from Canada, winner of the audience award at Cannes film festival, about Clara who is put in charge of her dead aunt’s pug dog.

Flickerfest, presented by Renault, will be held at the Brolga on Wednesday, March 13, at 6.30pm.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for Arts Council members.
