In Good Company: An Open Air Festival

Tremendously excited group of musos, performers and volunteers have organised a big festival to be held in November at the Lismore Turf Club. Aims to raise money to improve local mental health services and address homelessness

On Saturday November 13 2010, the Northern Rivers region's most talented musicians, artists and performers will come together to play live music, perform art & create a uniquely uplifting community vibe that'll be truly unforgettable.

The In Good Company Festival is an ALL-HEART not-for-profit charity festival to be held this coming November. This event is about using live music and the arts (check out our growing line-up!!) to enhance community spirit and throw a festival for the people of Lismore; but it’s also about drawing together as many high-profile leaders and individuals, musicians/artists and everyday people as we can to raise funds for two local not-for-profit organizations the Mental Health Support Group and the Lismore Soup Kitchen.

Former Bourbon Street rocker and virtuoso guitarist Horace Bevan is the brainchild of this festival. Having battled mental illness and addiction himself, and having a son who has suffered for many years and continues to battle with a diagnosed mental health disorder, Horace is an extremely passionate advocate for this cause. Pip Swift has joined him and a group of volunteers because we believe that by pulling together for causes of need and in times of need – by holding a Festival just like In Good Company – that’s where we believe we can make a difference and find success.

We are appealing to everyone to throw their support behind what will be a cheap and fun afternoon in teh sun at the Lismore Turf Club this coming November.

ARTISTS/PERFORMERS!!! We are also seeking performers and artists to donate their talents for this occasion. We want local art and talent and beauty all around us at this festival. Hit our website (listed below) and click on the 'APPLY HERE' page to find out how easy it is to get involved.

SPONSORS!!! One of the things we need to make this a success is some funding. We're looking for generous sponsors. We already have the support of the Northern Star for publicity purposes and the Lismore Turf Club, who are providing the venue. We're calling on businesses who are just as passionate as we are about making this Festival happen to throw open their wallets and give for a great cause.

As for the people of Lismore, we can't wait to see you all there!
