On Friday, Lumen Christi Catholic College in Pambula presents Moana Junior on stage, Sugar and Cream brings all the best R&B and reggae tracks to Queanbeyan, the O’Donnell Brothers dedicate a special show to Simon & Garfunkel and there’s a Christmas in July event in Yass.

To kick off the weekend on Saturday, Corey Legge is launching his latest hit single, there’s an acrylic pour painting class in Ulladulla, and there’s a psychic awareness and spiritual healing workshop in Goulburn.

Ending the weekend, there’s a four-course truffle lunch in Bungendore and on Tuesday next week, the weekly Sage Farmers markets return.
