Hello everybody, and welcome to another week on tour with me! This week I’ve ventured further across NSW and have ended up in the country music capital of Australia: Tamworth. This quaint country town has a detailed history, even becoming the first town to use electric street lighting in 1888. The Tamworth region was originally called home by The Kamilaroi People and The Kamilaroi Nation is one of the four largest Indigenous nations in Australia. Tamworth held its first Country Music Festival in 1973 and the event has now grown to accept over 300,000 visitors each year.
I’m lucky enough to be dancing on the Capitol Theatre stage later today–a 402 seat, purpose-built proscenium arch theatre. But there are a couple of other spaces that could be a great option for your next meetings or events plans.
Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth by Rydges
Located at 248 Armidale Road, Tamworth, The Powerhouse Hotel Tamworth by Rydges is rated 4.5 stars and is open 24 hours for your convenience. The hotel is located just 15 minutes from the airport and a short drive from Tamworth CBD and has a range of different event offerings. The Powerhouse offers five different function venues for your next event, meeting, or even conferences of up to 300 people. The sleek, modern design of the hotel is set to be a great backdrop for any event.
Similar to last week, Tamworth also has great event offerings at their local racetrack. Only this time, their trackside function facility is a beautiful outdoor setting with tables, chairs, marquees, or whatever you need to make your event a stunning success. This outdoor space gives any EAs or event planners a blank canvas to create their dream event. At Paceway, the possibilities are endless! There’s also room for food trucks or caterers inside the facility, too.
That wraps another week on tour in NSW, but stay tuned for next as we head right up the coast to QLD: my hometown!
