Lithgow Christian Life Centre will host its first annual Spring Arts Festival on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10.
A range of local amateur and professional work will be on display on Friday from 6-9pm and Saturday 1-4pm.
Among the displays will be a painting of Senior events coordinator Barrie Nicholson’s grandfather, James Henry Nicholson who fought in the 46th Battalion in World War I.
Seven local schools including Zig Zag Public, Lithgow High, Cooerwull Public, The Scots School, Portland Central, Lithgow Public and La Salle Academy will also display their work.
There will be refreshments and live entertainment on the night from school groups, local dance studios, Happy the Clown with Wendy the puppet, and highland dancers.
Mr Nicholson encouraged everyone to come along to the exciting, new and free community event.
“This is a free community event aimed at providing schools, groups and individuals with an opportunity to display quality artwork to a wider audience,” he said.
He also said the event was to become an annual fixture on the calendar.
