Music fest aims to be COVID-19 recovery event

Byron Bay could host a two-day, beachside music and arts festival in June this year, after an application to hold the event was lodged with Byron Council.

The essence of the tête-à-tête is the privacy of the conversation between two people who are literally ‘head-to-head’. At Tete-a-Tea, on the other hand, organisers say you will be surrounded by an ‘inspirational tribe’ of ‘women who wish to hear the struggles and success stories of others’ while enjoying a ‘beautiful morning tea in a stunning setting’.

If you think that sounds ‘nice’, then this event is doubly for you, as the first on the panel of speakers you will be listening to actually called her publishing house We Print Nice Things. Louise Bannister is the co-founder of Lunch Lady magazine, publisher of Frankie, Smith Street Journal, and SPACES.

Will the setting really be ‘stunning’? Well, Kimberley Amos created Riverhawk Ranch ‘as a place of growth and freedom for her family who also own the stunning Atlantic Byron Bay property’, says event organiser Angie Wilton, co-founder of Scratch Patisserie, who runs a mobile catering service called Little Vittles from a vintage-style caravan.

The event will ‘empower and inspire’ women who, says Angie, ‘all know that being a businesswoman has its own set of unique challenges, from juggling relationships and families to breaking down gender roles, to feeling like we need to compete with other women for the shortage of female roles within an industry’.

More info: Thurs 27 Sept 10.30–12.30. Tickets: $55/$45
