Unreal!  Just unreal!  Do it again!


Amazing that Sara took the time to work with the kids.  Great collaboration!


presenter feedback:

The Legend and the Locals initiative gave our community members the opportunity to come together, and not only the ones performing in the choir or duet either, but those attending the performance as well.


Locals came along to support their friends and family members who were performing, helping to reduce social isolations especially as it was a no cost event.


This event engaged our community, encouraged social connectedness and focused on building self-esteem and confidence especially with the additional workshops.


It evoked a sense of local pride and identity in a town that is struggling due to economic downturn, job loss and the ongoing drought.

The Blackall Heartland Festival would like to extend a massive thank you to ArTour, Sara Storer, yourselves and your whole team for attending and Heartland Festival this year.  The show you put together was a massive success, even with the trialling weather. We have had nothing but fabulous feedback from all that attended raving about how great all the performers are.
