2019 plan

January events are confirmed and I am showing up for a set on January 31, hard on the heels of Tamworth Country Music Festival.  The Good Questions are the headline act, with Jessica Rae as the opener. There are a number of ideas being sprouted for the new year, including a romantic night for February 14. The obligatory break over the Fringe will follow Valentine’s Day, returning March 21.

SCALA  in 2019

Keep an eye on the new look SCALA Website and/or FB Page for details of the coming events.

Our first Popular Song Competition was held December 20, 2018 as our end of year Christmas and break up celebrations.
A wonderful success which will be repeated in the new year!

FOOM (Festival Of Original Music) wound up August 23 on Grand Final night. It was a Sold Out event!! Happily it was  videoed and is available for viewing on the SCALA You Tube Channel

The AGM held on April 5  saw a new, enlarged SCALA Board elected, increasing from 8 to 12 members. We are hoping to spread the load and accomplish big things over the next 18 months.

You can still get involved by being part of one of the sub-committees. Contact SCALA through the website and let us know what you would like to be part of: Staging; Door person; MC; Newsletter; Grant applications; Website management; Talent scout; FOOM and many more

You can see how the final 30 year celebrations unfolded through the wonderful photos of Emma Woolcock on the FB page.
