There has been an overwhelming level of support for the victims of these fires from all over the Shire, including from Bermagui. Four Winds also has plans to help. They know that their visiting audience members will also wish to contribute, so here’s their plan:
• The free community Good Friday concert on the Bermagui oval (7.00 – 9.00pm) will be a fund-raising event for the victims of the fires. They hope to attract a large crowd and volunteers will be there to collect donations;
• At the Festival site, they will be actively encouraging donations throughout the Festival to the Mayoral Appeal Fund for the Tathra Fire. You will be able to make your donation at our Donations Tent. 100% of the funds donated to the Mayoral Appeal Fund will be passed on to those affected by the bush fire.
• Should they wish, anyone who has lost their home in the fires can seek a moment of peace and calm at the Four Winds Festival Sound Shell on Easter Saturday and Sunday, with the compliments of Four Winds. All they need to do is make themselves known at the Box Office at the entrance to the Four Winds site and they will be happy to welcome them.
• If you would like to donate to the Mayoral Appeal Fund you can do so online by following this link. https://www.begavalley.nsw.gov.au/cp_themes/default/page.asp?p=DOC-GBD-41-35-16 Four Winds 2018 Easter Festival | Wednesday 28th March to Easter Sunday 1st April 2018 Info and booking http://fourwinds.com.au/easterfestival James Crabb | Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) | Australian Brass Quintet | Tamara-Anna Cislowska | Rohan Dasika | Djaadjawan Dancers | Alice Giles AM | Goldner String Quartet | Holly Harrison | Heartsong Choir Bega | Radical Son | Jack Liebeck | Jessie Lloyd | Ian Munro | Guy Noble | Emma Pearson | Maria Raspopova In Recital: From Bach to Satie | David Rowden | Julian Smiles | Speak Percussion | Stonewave Taiko | Song Company | Sam Thomas | Aleksandr Tsiboulski, guitarist | Lloyd Van’t Hoff | Ariel Zuckermann Youth up to the age of 16 can attend the Four Winds Easter Festival for free.
