Night markets keep it local
The Margaret River Producers Association (MRPA) will bring local food, music and culture together with their Living Local Nights Markets held at the Margaret River HEART Soundshell on Friday November 27.
Community members are encouraged to come along and help celebrate Live Local Month, an initiative recognising and supporting local businesses, events and talent within the Margaret River Region.
MRPA Market Manager, Kat Lombardo said bringing this type of event to the HEART was the perfect opportunity to support living locally.
“I’m excited to activate such a wonderful local space and see the community come together and take pride in all things local,” Ms Lombardo said.
“Gathering with friends and family in a local environment, eating tasty local food and listening to groovy local tunes is the magic of community. Community is local.
“There’ll be many delicious cuisines on offer from an array of local food producers and live local music played throughout the evening.
“Well-known Claudio Biscotti will be there with his gelato cart and sweet filled cannoli, Mala Dumplings with delicious Szechuan style dumplings, Spice Odyssey with Indian cuisine and J’s Kitchen with Korean street food just to name a few.”
Local musicians Banjo Lucia and Blackwood Morris will kick off the entertainment in the HEART Soundshell from 6pm, while an Owl Friendly Margaret River seminar will be held in the Studio Theatre at 5:30pm for all lovers of wildlife.
Night market guests are also invited to attend an Artist Talk in the Foyer Gallery at 5:30pm with Photographer Martine Perret, as she reveals Western Australia’s unique landscape with extraordinary vision and detail in her ongoing aerial photography project, Beyond Above Western Australia.
The event will be complemented by showing the new Western Australian film RAMS in the Main Theatre at 7:30pm.
Margaret River HEART General Manager, Nicky Hansen said RAMS sold out all screenings at CinefestOZ Film Festival earlier this year and has been a favourite to hit the big screen at the HEART.
“We anticipate tickets to sell out quickly and encourage people wanting to see the movie to pre-purchase tickets online to avoid disappointment at the door,” she said.
