Every first Friday is for the locals at Stokers

You can’t get much more local than Fifteen Minutes of Fame at the Stokers Siding Hall.

Fifteen Minutes is a unique and entertaining variety show featuring local talent that guarantees a night of fun and enjoyment.  Adding to the atmosphere, the community hall is decorated in a way that sets the mood and gives extra life and feeling to the show.

This month returning by audience demand is Lachlan Wallace. This young man with the huge show voice will captivate and wow us with his outstanding sophisticated singing talent.

The blackboard acts for April are: James Webb with great originals and covers in a rock-folk style; ten year old Charlotte and her ukulele accompanying her dad, Karl; Peter Lino with his layered instrumental and vocal sounds; and Rob, Judy and Carl with harmonious classics and fun.

Spread the word for a lovely night’s entertainment.

Great food prepared and served by the Hall Honeys.
