Dinner under the stars in Miles
NOTHING beats a hearty camp oven dinner under the stars.
Add a live performance to the mix and you've got yourself a wonderful evening complete with dinner and a show.
The Miles Historical Society and the Miles Regional Arts Council teamed up to put a wonderful evening of food and entertainment on Thursday night as part of this week's Big Skies event line up.
President of the Miles Historical Society, Kylie Bourne said the village hosts dinner under the stars events at least once a year.
"This is our signature night time event, we love putting on a camp over dinner at the historical village because it's such a beautiful location,” she said.
"You get to sit under the stars and enjoy a lovely radio show as well, what more could you want?”
"It's a brilliant community facility and it's something we need to share so having evenings like this is very important to us as a society.”
THursday night's live radio play "A Roo Loose in the Top Paddock” written by Jane Barnett was a particularly special way to wrap up the event.
Owen Gray, Karington Nothdurft, Robyn Cahill and John Keam from Miles Regional Arts Council did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life and transporting audiences to a different age, before the era of television.
"We read a couple dozen plays before settling on this one,” Miss Nothdurft said.
"We thought our rural audience would relate well to the story and the characters behind it.”
If you missed out on the action this week, the village will be hosting a Variety Bash on Tuesday, July 30th with more details to come.
