Bingara Roxy Museum Grand Opening Celebrations
The Bingara Roxy Greek Museum was officially opened on Saturday the 5th of April, 2014.
The Roxy Museum which was opened by Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC Governor of NSW will become a place of national significance that conserves and protects the important cultural association between people and place. The Museum documents the history of Greek settlement in Australia, with particular reference to the Greek involvement in cafés throughout New South Wales and Queensland.
As part of the two day event there were guided tours of the museum, antique car displays, movie screenings in the Roxy Theatre and talks by special guests. The highlight of the weekend was the Gala Ball on Saturday evening. Bringing the glamour of the 1930s back to Bingara, the dinner was an unforgettable evening of Greek feasting and festivity under the stars with entertainment by Australia’s top Greek dance band Ha Va Le.
