Will the Lennox Park pavilion survive?

Ballina Shire Council will today debate the future of the Lennox Park pavilion/dressing shed, which is slated for removal as part of the Lennox Village Vision concept plan.

Today and tomorrow V‑Day Lismore will present a two nights only benefit performance of V-Day’s A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and a Prayer at Lismore’s Star Court Theatre.

Last year over 5,800 V-Day benefits were held around the world raising funds and awareness towards ending violence against women.

These highly successful events raised over $5 million through performance of Eve Ensler’s award-winning play, The Vagina Monologues, readings from V-Day’s A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer and Any One Of Us: Words From Prison and screenings of V-Day’s documentary Until The Violence Stops and the PBS documentary What I Want My Words To Do To You Lismore has joined this global movement as part of the V‑Day 2014 Lismore Campaign.

This special benefit performance is presented this year as part of V-Day’s campaign One Billion Rising for Justice, a global call for women survivors of violence and those who love them to gather safely in places where they are entitled to justice – courthouses, police stations, government offices, school administration buildings, work places, sites of environmental injustice, military courts, embassies, places of worship, homes, or simply public gathering places where women deserve to feel safe but too often do not – and release their stories through art, dance, marches, ritual, song, spoken word, sit ins, and testimonies.

Tickets are $30 each and can be purchased on the theatre’s website, or by phoning 6622 5005.
