Stars turn out for the concert for rural Australia

The Toyota Concert for Rural Australia will be held this Friday, 22nd January in Toyota Park.

Kicking off at 6.30pm, the concert boasts a star studded line up including The McClymonts, 2015 Star Maker winner Mickey Pye and a host of previous Toyota Star Maker winners.

Concert goers will also enjoy the Grand Final of the 2016 Toyota Star Maker where finalists Allison Forbes, Karin Page and Missy Lancaster will vie for the title.

The concert culminates with a performance by 1982 Toyota Star Maker winner and Toyota ambassador, Lee Kernaghan.

Entry to the event is free, with fans encouraged to dig deep and donate. This year, event organisers are fundraising for the McGrath Foundation and hope to make a difference for the cause.

“The McGrath Foundation raises money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia” explained Festival Manager, Barry Harley.

“The concert has always been a huge success and we hope that people can help support this fantastic cause” added Barry.

The Toyota Concert for Rural Australia has raised over $100,000 for various causes over the past few years, directly benefiting communities in rural and regional Australia.

Tamworth Regional Council acknowledges the Gamilaroi/Kamilaroi people, who are the Traditional Custodians of this land. We would like to pay respect to Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living in and visiting our region.
