Italian Festival 2011

Rebecca has been confirmed as a guest performer for the Italian Long Lunch held in Nelson Trafalgar Street 6th September as well as a guest performer at The Italian Festival 17th – 18th September at the Air Nelson Hangar.

Italian Long Lunch 6th September

Join Nelson’s Long Lunch and help show off our region’s vast food bowl. At the Long Lunch businesses, retailers, shoppers and visitors will all sit at long tables down Trafalgar Street with their BYO food and drink. It will be fun, rain or shine – red, green and white balloons, rugby balls, photo opportunities, a festival atmosphere, great memories for all involved and lasting benefits to businesses. Everyone’s welcome!

Book a group table and get ready to welcome the world to our town.
