Local talent and community groups in the Parkes Shire will feature in a special show to mark the official opening of the new multi-purpose centre in Cooke Park.
Council will form a Cooke Park Multi-purpose Centre Inaugural Performance Committee to manage the event.
Construction of the new pavilion on Welcome Street is progressing well, with work expected to be completed by December this year.
“The multi-purpose centre will become a feature in Council’s landscape for years to come, so it’s only fitting that we hold a very special celebratory opening,” said Mayor Ken Keith OAM.
The event is expected to feature local Parkes Shire talent and community groups. It will also provide an opportunity for Council to test out the functionality of the new centre including audio, lighting, backdrop and screen into green room, use of side screens and filming, prior to the 2021 Parkes Elvis Festival.
The official opening will be a post COVID-19 event.
