Townsville Civic Theatre

A free public event

The AFCM and Townsville City Council celebrate 25 years of Festival music with a free concert for all!  Bring the kids, friends, family and any visitors along to Queens Gardens, settle back on a rug and enjoy some of the best musicians in the world staged in the beautiful leafy green gardens. Get up close to some great music performed by the truly fabulous Amy Dickson on saxophone, the 1RAR Band and the Barrier Reef Orchestra. And of course it’s not a celebration without a rousing 1812 Overture! The cannon firing will be a surprise in which you will be involved!
