This Saturday, December 2, Railway Park in Byron will be the venue for the inaugural Beggars Banquet an all-ages, multicultural event to raise money for the Beggars Banquet Homelessness Fund, managed by the Byron Youth Service.

It is Christmas and the perfect time for the community to show compassion for the plight of others. Especially the homeless in our region. (Didnt the Xmas birthday boy say something about I was hungry and you fed me?)

The fun starts at 10.30am with Arakwal dancers doing a corroboree. The free community feast begins at 12pm (noon). Everyones invited! (You can bring food for sharing with others.)

The feasting will be complemented by some of the areas best acts Green Life, Skankomatics, The Firetree, African drumming and dancing with Cheze, Chinta and Rhythm Konnection, Groove Collective, Hip Hop Mothers, the Riff Band, Jai Pyne, Vasudha, Chris Aronsten, Willie McElroy, Soulman, Natural Colour, Tarshitos Ecstatic Dance Band...
