From the shutdown of Liddell Power Station, LiddellWORKS has emerged – a creative program that seeks to honour the legacy of the Liddell Power Station and capture its transformation. Local talented artists were handpicked to document, record, and creatively interpret the power station’s journey, from its operational years to the poignant moment of its closure and beyond.

LiddellWORKS is a joint project between Arts Upper Hunter and AGL Macquarie to mark the historic closure of the Liddell Power Station which occurred in April 2023.

Over 12 months 17 artists will respond to the history, closure and transformation of the Liddell Power Station. With community events, workshops and performances along the way, culminating in an exhibition at both Singleton Arts and Cultural Centre and Muswellbrook Regional Arts Centre.

7 highland games

Aberdeen Highland Games

The Games begin with a parade of bands, clan representatives and others that leads into the Massed Band Salute and Chieftain’s Address that officially opens the day. Throughout the day there will be fun for all the family – there will be Highland and Country Dancing, Pipe Band displays, Strong Man events with the Kilted Warriors to enjoy as well as three-legged races, and the famed Kilted Dash to participate in. A multitude of stores and stands will surround the area selling all manner of Scottish heirlooms and souvenirs, clothing and garb, and food and drink to complete your day.

In the evening there will be a Pipe Band Quintet competition at the Aberdeen RSL Club.
