Cultural event brings the joys of opera and song to park

THIS year Opera at The Channon will be celebrating 18 years of fine food and fabulous entertainment.

This unique cultural event brings the joys of opera and song to the picturesque Coronation Park, The Channon, situated in the hinterland of the Far North Coast of New South Wales.

Opera lovers and others are invited to dress formally, enjoy a three-course 'fine dining' luncheon under a grand marquee, with fabulous food prepared by gourmet chefs, or take their own lunch and enjoy a picnic with a difference or purchase a barbecue lunch.

Wine is included in the price of the fine dining luncheon and a free glass of bubbles is provided for every guest on arrival.

Following lunch, guests are treated to an afternoon of fine music and this year we're delighted to have Vavachi Entertainment, a group of world-class artists to entertain guests in this delightful open-air setting, performing songs from famous Operas and musicals.

Gae Ferris, chairwoman of the Opera Committee said it was the combined Rotary Clubs of Lismore's favourite time of year.

"It is so wonderful to see the community and opera lovers support this iconic charitable event.

"The chance for everyone to experience fine food, wine and song in such a unique setting even see our picnickers donning their best attire and serving lunch with their finest silverware.

"We've donated over $150,000 to local charities over the last 17 years and we are so grateful to the ongoing support of visitors, sponsors and volunteers."

This will be held on Sunday, July 26 with gates opening at 11am.

Tickets are available on www.operaatthechannon.com.au.
