2018 Wauchope Arts Council secured $22,800 in funding from the NSW government’s Regional Cultural Fund (RCF) to upgrade our stage equipment and seating. Four lightweight portable staging units and 80 brand-new seats were purchased using the grant funding.
Oxley member Melinda Pavey MP made a special visit to inspect the new equipment and to congratulate the Wauchope Arts committee on securing the funding. To read the Wauchope Gazette story of Ms Pavey's visit click here.
