The Urbenville Showground is gearing up for their annual festival and bull ride next Saturday, September 8.

They are hoping for good weather after last year's event was cancelled and the re-scheduled event in May this year was also washed out.

As well as men trying to sit on the backs of wild bulls, the festival includes kids' activities, market stalls, old motor displays, a huge charity auction and much more.

It is a fundraiser for the Urbenville Rural Fire Service, Urbenville SES and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Service.

Gates open at 11am and the bull riding starts at 2pm. Entry is $10 per person or $20 for a family of four (with kids under 12 years).

Rosanna has designs on female taboo

Artist Rosanna Pimm uses 3500 porcelain tampons to created her large scale performance installation  Riots of Passage in The Quad  as part of The Lismore Women's Festival on International Women's Day. Laying down and de-constructing the mandala structure symbolises the impermanence of the menstrual cycle and an end to female inequality in the world.
