The last weekend of summer will see the launch of an exciting new event in the heart of the historic Hunter Valley village of Wollombi – the Wollombi Classic Film Festival.
Film buffs, or those just looking for a great reason for a weekend getaway, will be treated to 6 classic films at 2 stunning venues, including outdoors in the Grays Inn Garden and indoors at the 1845 built St Michael’s Church. Both venues provide perfect locations for this boutique film festival and give visitors an opportunity to soak up the ambiance of a town fittingly referred to as the jewel in the crown of the Lower Hunter Valley.
The festival program is diverse, spanning 40+ years of classic cinema and includes Australian classics Strictly Ballroom and Picnic at Hanging Rock plus 4 other cinematic gems comprising A Place in The Sun, Rebel Without a Cause, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Chinatown.
The festival opens with a garden cocktail party from 6:30pm Friday featuring live music, canapés and complimentary Noyce Brothers Wine till 8pm, and then Strictly Ballroom to end the night in a blaze of color.
There will be a licensed bar on site selling local wine and craft beers, and as this town shows each year with events including the Wollombi Music Festival, Wollombi Market Day, New Years Eve at Wollombi Tavern and others, country hospitality will very much be order of the day.
Simply Reds, The Big Love Tour lands in Australia this February and playing in the Hunter at Bimbadgen on 20 February 2016.
Special guests include the fabulous Tina Arena, returning to the winery stages for the first time since 2010 and also Natalie Imbruglia. Tickets can be booked here Concerts Tickets.
