If you missed out on tickets to the Friday night dinner, there is still plenty to do on the first evening of the Festival in Katoomba ....
afternoon between 3:00pm and 4:30pm there is a 'meet and greet' at the Blue
Mountains Cultural Centre located a few meters away from the front door
of the Carrington Hotel (Free Event).
At 6:00pm there
is a cocktail party in the Ballroom
of the Carrington Hotel and everyone is invited. No need to drink but the bar will be open if you are inclined. The entertainment will be
the Blue MUGs (Free Event).
7:00pm the Carrington Hotel Dining Room opens for those with tickets for the Festival Dinner, and everyone else is
invited along to the Old City Bank Bar (Katoomba Street) for a strum along using the Ukulele Club
Songbook (Free Event).
If that isn't enough, the Family Hotel
(Parke Street) will be open til late (Free Event). So everyone should be able to find
something to do on Friday.
