Black Night Feast

Black Night Feast

All-night Mexican inspired feasting to tantalise your taste buds and live entertainment to bend your mind – all set within this iconic building that is fast becoming one of the premium destinations for large events in the region – The Foundations in Portland.

Just like the first Black Night Feast, this will be a night to remember. From the minute you pass through the gates you will have entered another world, one where the flames leap high into the night sky, the aromas take you to far-away lands and the sounds and sights leave you mesmerised for days!

Our performers will entertain you in the plaza area whilst you enjoy your arrival drinks and canapés, then it will be time to take your seats so the real party can begin.

Our Mexican inspired feasting menu will be available throughout the evening for you to indulge in – charcoal roasted meats, tacos, paella, salads and salsa will all be prepared right before your eyes.

The entertainment will run all night with the Lost Mariachis, joined by dancers, performers, a DJ and later in the night music to shake the skies as we celebrate Dia De Los Muertos!

Medicinal marijuana and gut microbes on the menu

Science at the Local

Community science series Science at the Local is back for a second event in Lithgow on Sunday, November 3 from 2.30pm at Lithgow Workies. The event is free and all are welcome.
Professor Iain McGregor from at the University of Sydney will be speaking about research into the therapeutic potential of medicinal cannabis. Also speaking will be Associate Professor Andrew Holmes, on the topic of “Your poo and you – gut microbial diversity and health”.
“It’s great to be back in Lithgow,” said Science at the Local co-founder and high school teacher Kevin Joseph. “It was so good to meet folks from the community last time and we’re hoping for an even bigger turnout this time round.”
Professor McGregor is an NHMRC Principal Research Fellow and Director of the Lambert Initiative for Cannabinoid Therapeutics. He completed his undergrad studies at the University of Oxford and is a well known figure in the field of medical cannabis research. McGregor is also interested in oxytocin and its effect on social and addictive behaviours, novel psychoactive substances and pheromones.

Associate Professor Holmes conducts research into microbial diversity in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Sydney. His research interests include the role of gut microbial diversity in human health, exploring microbial diversity for new biological resources and the underlying evolutionary origins of microbial diversity.
“Microorganisms are the most abundant and the most diverse group of organisms on Earth,” said Holmes. “They are also the most poorly known. As such the microbiota represent the largest unexplored biological resource on Earth.”
“Science at the Local is not just about science, it’s about community,” said co-founder Hamish Clarke, a bushfire researcher at the University of Wollongong and Western Sydney University. “We’ve been building those connections in the Lower Mountains since 2014 and we’d love to keep coming back to Lithgow.”

Where: Lithgow Workies, Tank St, Lithgow
When: Sunday 3 November , 2:30pm – 4pm
