Goondiwindi to host second Lanescape Festival in October

"Thank you" was the message sent out loud and clear to those gathered together at Urban Quarter on last Thursday night to celebrate the supporters of Lanescape.

Acknowledging the difficult times the region is experiencing, Lanescape President and founder, Angus Wilson, thanked the many sponsors and volunteers who helped realise the 2018 dream of transforming Bowen Lane with street art - including the vibrant wall murals and bollard paintings - and the very successful Lanescape Festival.

"Lanescape can only happen with the support of our generous sponsors and the hard work and efforts of volunteers and committee members," Mr Wilson said.

"We hope this support will continue in to the future with this year's planned public art projects and exciting Festival."

The Lanescape committee is planning another spectacular twilight Festival on Friday, October 25 to celebrate this year's planned public-art projects.

The event will kick off a big weekend of arts and culture that will also include the inaugural Sounds from the Borderline Music Festival.

The committee thanked Lachie Brennan and his team at Urban Quarter for providing the delicious catering and friendly service.

If you would like to become a sponsor or volunteer please contact Heather Scanlan, 0427 751 144 for more information. The Lanescape Festival was one of the surprise social hits of 2018.
