Lonnie Lee and the Leemen return to Maitland in 2020
For the ninth year, Rock ‘n’ Roll group Lonnie Lee and the Leemen will be performing at Maitland Town Hall next month to celebrate Seniors Festival. The free event will be held from 12.00pm to 3.00pm on Thursday 20 February.
Council, in partnership with the Seniors Festival Reference Group, will run the event which includes the concert as well as light lunch, cake and beverages provided free to attendees.
Due to the popularity of the event, a ballot system will be used to allocate tickets. Council will make 280 tickets available to the community for this highly anticipated event. People wishing to attend the event can call 4934 9700 or email SeniorsFestival@maitland.nsw.gov.au to put their name into the ballot. Names will be collected from today until Friday 24 January and will be drawn at random by the Seniors Festival Reference Group on Tuesday 28 January.
Council’s Acting Manager Community and Recreation Emily Livens says, ‘We are pleased to welcome Lonnie Lee and the Leemen back to Maitland again in 2020. The concert has been extremely popular in previous years and as such we are continuing with the ballot approach this year to ensure ticket allocation is as fair as possible. We encourage people to contact Council to put their name down.
‘In addition to the Lonnie Lee and the Leemen Concert, a number of events and activities will be occurring across Maitland during Seniors Festival. Council will be releasing a Seniors Festival program of events which will provide information on other activities on offer and will be available from local libraries and on Council’s website in the coming weeks’.
Seniors Festival will be held from Wednesday 12 February to Sunday 23 February and is themed ‘Love to Celebrate’ in 2020. For more information about Seniors Festival, including the program of events, contact Council on 4934 9700 or email SeniorsFestival@maitland.nsw.gov.au
