Northey Street City Farm
A government mandate was released this week whereby from December 17 2021:
Music festivals both indoor and outdoor will be for vaccinated staff, performers and patrons only.
This means that all staff, performers, patrons and stall holders are required to be vaccinated for our Summer Solstice.
This boutique cabaret will offer lucky ticket holders a special evening of soul filled entertainment.
Summer Solstice celebrates the longest day of the year and the start of the Summer holidays. A week before Christmas, the Night Markets will be a great opportunity to support local artists and small business who create sustainable and ethical products.
The cabaret will start with a ceremony and include circus performances and music. Permaculture workshops will be offered, including children’s and arts activities, and thought provoking discussions.
All this and the best organic food on offer in Brisbane and a fund raising jungle bar to toast to Summer.
