“What goes around comes around: the new Festival of the Valley has grown from the ashes of Celebrate Lithgow, which grew out of the old Festival of the Valley; which locals know, was a huge event that involved the whole town. This year’s festival will be a humble free event compared to the old days but will be significantly bigger than last year & will be a lot of fun. Everyone is invited to come along &, being that we’re still over 2 months away, we’re still looking for people to get involved.”said Macgregor Ross, organiser of the festival.
