Ulumbarra and The Capital go digital

By Alex Gretgrix

IF YOU are missing your nights listening and watching live shows at the theatre or seeing your favourite artist showing off their talents, fear not — it's time to get back into it.

The Ulumbarra and The Capital Facebook pages will broadcast ‘watch parties’ featuring local artists, commencing as soon as videos are submitted.

The ‘Play at home’ initiative will see Bendigo musicians, comedians, actors and other performing artists share their talents with Bendigo — and the world.

Bendigo Venues and Events manager David Lloyd said the initiative was a way to lift the spirits of performers and the community.

“We encourage local and regional performers to submit their videos as soon as possible,” Mr Lloyd said.

“‘Play at home’ is one of several initiatives Bendigo Venues and Events has introduced to support artists and our community at this challenging time.

“We consider arts an essential component of healthy living and I am so pleased we can help our community experience great local arts and entertainment on a digital platform, in their homes during this period of isolation.”

All artists and performers, amateur or professional, are encouraged to visit bendigovenuesandevents.com.au for more information and instructions on how to submit a video to be broadcast.

Members of the public wishing to see the performances, playing times and other information should follow Ulumbarra or The Capital on Facebook.
