Bright Autumn Festival needs a night spark

ORGANISERS of one of Bright’s major festivals hope to add a different aspect to the program in 2017.

ORGANISERS of one of Bright’s major festivals hope to add a different aspect to the program in 2017.

Bright Autumn Festival president Brendan Holland said the committee is looking to hold more events of a night, something the long standing festival has lacked over its 55 years.

“Last year we had the woodwork and the ironwork workshops, the bush dance and the Instameet which were all quite successful,” he said.
