Newcastle is set to play its role during Sydney WorldPride, by staging a culinary treat at The Station next month.
Cakeboi’s Reece Hignell and Hunter’s own First Nations drag artist Timberlina are co-hosting Pink Salt at the iconic venue on Saturday 18 February from 6pm until 10pm.
For the special occasion, The Station will be transformed into a long table dinner party where everyone can gather with friends, new and old, to eat, drink, connect and celebrate before venturing to Sydney for Mardi Gras Fair Day (19 February) and/or the Opening Concert (24 February).
“We’re really looking forward to it,” one of the event organisers said.
“And, we are thrilled to have the likes of Reece, Timberlina and other gifted locals on board.
“It should be a great, and fun, evening for all.”
Hignell, a former MasterChef contestant, along with talented queer chefs Christine Manfield and Nornie Bero is preparing a sumptuous three-course meal at the 18+ event.
On arrival be delighted by Curious Legends, who’ll make you embrace laughter, magic and the mysterious world of our imaginations teaming with hometown talent.
As guests dine, they will be entertained by a non-stop fabulous show featuring queer art, music, DJs, and performances by some of Newcastle’s finest, including Molly Poppinz, Jojo Zaho, Cockington Black and Orlando Gloom, coordinated by Timberlina.
The price of a ticket includes the feast, a four-hour beverage package (beer, wine and soft drinks) and entertainment.
