What events would you like to see happening in the community? Everyone will have their own set of ideas and right now the Lennox Head cultural and community centre wants to know what you want.

Over the last twelve months the Park Lane Theatre in Lennox Head has hosted a series of successful events, receiving widespread positive community response. The selection of events and activities has been primarily based on community consultation undertaken a year ago, which gathered information from local residents to guide programmers on what is most desired in terms of local arts and cultural programming.

‘It is important that we provide a varied and high-quality program which seeks to meet diverse interests in our community,’ said Kate McBride, Ballina shire council’s acting community facilities team leader.

‘We want to build our profile as a premier entertainment venue in the Northern Rivers, but to do this we need to know what interests our community.

‘The types of things we want to hear about include musical tastes, hobbies and issues of importance. We also ask for general ideas in narrative form about what the ideal local entertainment programme would look like, so through this survey, we really give people the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way’, Ms McBride said.
