Starting at 10.00am on Sunday 14 October, the Meckering Earthquake 50th Anniversary Commemorative Event will be an action-packed day full of FREE activities and entertainment for the whole family. Our Master of Ceremonies, popular ABC radio presenter Di Darmody, will lead us through the day’s proceedings which will commence at 10.30am with an official welcome from the Cunderdin Shire President. At precisely 10.59am we will have a moment of reflection to recognise the significance of the earthquake that forever changed the shape of the Meckering townscape and impacted on so many lives.

Throughout the day, visitors will have the opportunity to take a site tour out to the earthquake ruins and fault line and hear firsthand accounts of the earthquake from local residents. Our newly revamped earthquake walk trail, just a short walk from the town centre, will be open to visitors all day. Your children will have no shortage of things to do with a free Scitech exhibition and science shows, carnival rides and face painting. Entertainment will be provided by CMC Music Awards Female Artist of the Year, Chelsea Basham. There will also be performances from the Meckering Primary School Students and Toodyay Ballet School.

Enjoy a beverage with friends in our pop-up bar and sample the speciality brew, Richter Ale which was made especially for this event from barley grown in Meckering. Local produce and a range of yummy food (including hot lamb rolls made from Meckering bred lambs) will be on sale through a range of vendors.

11:00 am Merredin Adventure before Dementia

Do you know how Tasmania came to be or whether Eddie McGuire should ride a bicycle? What about the joys of getting old. Old Jack the Aussie Gleeman does.

Join raconteur and poet, John R. Sabine, as he unpacks his mortal coil of 80 years to tell like it is with yarns and verse that will make you laugh and think and smile and be glad to be alive.

Whether as a sportsman, scholar or actor, for John, life is an adventure and now he wants to tell you about what’s he’s learned and why you can teach old dogs new tricks (he should know!), what morality we can learn from Russians (really?) and why wombats have hairy noses. Wit, wisdom and wishful thinking in poetry, prose and a mixture thereof. It’s a joy for all when Old Jack gets on his feet.

This event is part of the Lunchtime Escapes series of shows aimed at presenting high quality live performances to daytime audiences. Come and enjoy an hour long performance in the main auditorium of the Cummins Theatre.

Each concert begins at 11am with a complimentary high tea consisting of cakes, sandwiches, scones, and other delicacies, along with a selection of tea and coffee. The performance begins at 12pm.
