NOOSA alive! REiGNiTE 2021 is just that. It’s a reignition, a restart, a return to the arts in the patch of paradise that is Noosa, and the dates for your diary are Thursday 11 March – Saturday 13 March, with tickets on sale now.
President of NOOSA alive! Andrew Squires is excited to announce the return of events and experiences, including magnificent evening dinner performances through to family fun and outdoor events.
“Last year was incredibly challenging for so many in the arts, and of course it was heartbreaking to cancel our beloved NOOSA alive! 2020 events,” Andrew says. “We know how important the events are for the performers and artists, and indeed, for the wider arts-loving community.”
“With a new year, and appropriate COVID-safe sensibilities, the NOOSA alive! Committee is genuinely thrilled to present a phenomenal mid-March program called NOOSA alive! REiGNiTE 2021 – a precursor to the annual July festival,” he says.
Andrew stresses that all events comply with the COVID safety regulations and encourages arts-lovers to get in quick to avoid disappointment – as there are limited numbers of tickets for each event.
The stellar program line-up features the following events:
