[Sponsored] Enjoy traditional Papuan-style food while raising money for the Black Orchid Stringband
Join the Black Orchid Stringband for a night of Papuan food and live music in the picturesque surrounds of Fryers Forest. On Saturday June 2 the band will be hosting a fundraising dinner and concert, with proceeds going towards the group's tour to the Solomon Islands in July.
The two-course dinner will be cooked in the ground in the traditional Papuan 'mumu' style – that is, buried with hot rocks and leaves. The concert is a family-friendly event, though there will be a bar available for anyone wanting a tipple or two.
Rug up as Fryers Forest can get quite chilly in June, and guests are welcome to camp overnight if they prefer. Otherwise a shuttle bus will be ferrying guests to and from Castlemaine station. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for under 18s, with a vegetarian or vegan dinner option available.
