Social connection funds curtains

THE Tweed Heads Auditorium is the recipient of more than $125,000 allocated from the Federal Government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program.

The money will be spent on replacing old drapes and the house curtain, moving circuits and updating the lighting and sound system.

Tweed Shire Council community and cultural services manager Gary Corbett said the centre was chosen because of its social connection.

“The refurbishment of the Tweed Auditorium has been identified as a strategic priority to enable the provision of cultural resources and facilities that will continue to meet the growing needs of our community.

“Council has recently undertaken an audit and analysis of the Tweed Auditorium with a view to growing the capacity of the facility as a viable and sustainable regional enterprise for the performing arts presenting high quality entertainment and cultural programs in the Tweed Shire,” he said.

Tweed Theatre Company uses the facility regularly for performances.

Company Coral Kelly said the funding will aid them in their productions.

“It is good to update everything because things have been the same for many years now,” Ms Kelly said.
