Drums beating for one long table

Chinchilla's Heeney Street will echo with the sounds of Africa at the One Long Table event on October 30.

One Long Table, an initiative of Chinchilla Community Commerce and Industry Inc, is a family dinner celebrating cultural diversity in the region.

Support from QGC has made it possible to bring African drummers Rhythm Konnections to Chinchilla, to run a series of interactive drumming workshops at the event.

QGC Social Performance Gas Fields Manager Tony Heidrich said QGC was a proud supporter of this unique community event, held for the first time in 2010.

"Drumming and dance have traditionally been used to build community spirit in Africa and we hope Rhythm Konnections can contribute something special to the One Long Table," he said.

QGC support has also helped fund equipment hire and other event costs.

One Long Table organiser Robyn Mapp said the event was designed to encourage the community to reach out and get to know each other.

"Chinchilla's population is expanding rapidly as the resources sector grows. People with a range of backgrounds are moving here and we wanted to host an interactive function to celebrate the diversity of our community and encourage the integration of new arrivals," she said.

International foods showcased at One Long Table will include Turkish, Filipino, South African, English, Indian, Islander, Italian and American. There will be foods from closer to home too, including indigenous fare, and a camp oven.

Other entertainment will include musician Sterle Buchanan, indigenous dance, games, painting and a jumping castle.

Tickets will be available at Chinchilla Florist from Tuesday 5 October for $25 per family or $10 per adult and $5 for children aged 10-17.
