Harmony Day at Eskbank House

Lithgow City Council is inviting the community to attend Harmony Day celebrations at Eskbank House & Museum on Friday 20 th March from 2-6pm.

Eskbank House will be hosting a variety of information stalls aimed at providing the community with information on legal issues, fair trading information, workplace opportunity and migration support. Crafts and other items will also be on sale.

Enjoy a relaxed afternoon with the family and be entertained by Belly D, Wallerawang School Choirs and take part in a great interactive drumming workshop that is sure to be a big hit with the kids.

For 10 years now, Harmony day has been celebrated across Australia. Harmony Day’s key message is that “Everyone Belongs”. It's about community participation, inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Since Harmony Day began, thousands of schools, community groups and organisations across Australia have hosted Harmony Day events.

“Harmony Day is a great way for our community to celebrate the many contributions different cultures bring to our community” says Mayor Neville Castle, “I am proud for Council to be involved in this event and hope that everyone has a great time on the day, leaving with a greater sense of community and a better cultural understanding”.

Admission and all entertainment for this event is free. Entry to the Museum is by donation. This event will not be catered so pack a picnic and enjoy the fun.
