6PM Start Time
Join the Ipswich City String Quartet and guest performers for an evening of recognition and reflection as we acknowledge the insidious presence of domestic violence in our community.
Along with informative talks by our guest speakers, be entertained by the wonderful sounds of the quartet with a program including music by accomplished female Australian composer and our newest ensemble member, Alys Rayner.
The event is free with supplied grazing boards. The venue is fully licenced with a wider selection of food available.
These performances are being presented as fundraising events for the Allison Baden-Clay Foundation and we thank the wonderful organisations and businesses that have contributed to making the evening successful.
