2016 The Roxy turns 80
Join the birthday celebrations as part of this year’s annual Bingara Orange Festival when the festival goes “Greek”.
The theme of the festival this year will celebrate the contribution of Greek immigrants to rural Australia, and in particular the lasting legacy they left in Bingara through the Roxy Theatre and Peters Cafe. All things Greek will be on offer including Greek music and exhibitions, toga fun run, Greek feast, gardening demonstrations, tours of the Mediterranean garden at Bingara’s ‘Living Classroom’, followed by the Orange Festival military ball and Roxy Birthday celebrations on the Saturday evening.
