Northcliffe - our community
Southern Forests, Western Australia
We’d like to share some great news as well as remind you about our live broadcast of the WA Opera on 3rd February 2018 at the Northcliffe Community Resource Centre.
First the news: the NCRC live broadcasts of Perth music and theatre events look set to continue. These were in question after the State Government’s recent decision to put the shutters on the Westlink satellite broadcasting channel. The events will now be called ‘Lotterywest Live Broadcasts’. We not yet sure how the technical side of the broadcasts will work but rest assured, these details will be worked out. Thanks to any and all who have brought about this result. The first Lotterywest Live Broadcast will be on 4th of May. It will be Ray Lawler’s classic Australian play Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, performed by the Black Swan Theatre Company.
No need to wait that long! On Saturday 3rd of February we have coming up a live broadcast of the WA Opera performing La Boheme in Langley Park Perth. The broadcast starts at 8pm and we will have the doors open by 7:45pm. BYO snacks and drinks (The NCRC is not hosting our usual bring and share dinner this time – we have other plans).
These are all free events and all in the community are welcome to come along and enjoy our big screen, fabulous sound system, comfortable venue and the great company of other Northcliffe music and culture lovers.
This year we have awarded three sponsorships and are providing Northcliffe kids support to a value of $1740.
We're really proud of the efforts of Northcliffe kids in putting together their applications. Well done to all who submitted applications.
This may be the very last live music simulcast broadcast through Northcliffe CRC, due to the closure of the Westlink service by our State Government. La Boheme, performed by our own WA State Opera Company will start at 8pm on Saturday 3rd Feb. Doors will open 15 minutes beforehand. This is a free event. BYO drinks and nibbles for this great event and enjoy the CRCs big screen, fabulous sound system, comfortable venue and great company. Poster.
