Wingham Wrap: May 8

Ten Theatres: A new community space with a creative focus has been set up in Queen Street, Wingham. Ten Theatres hosts many creative events including intimate gigs, Tai Chi and Yoga classes. Each Wednesday this month will be Mind Funk, a teen drop in centre from 4-6pm. Young people will get the opportunity to learn such things as fire twirling and bamboo sculpture as well as listen to music or jam. 

Cooking with Jamie: It seems Wingham hasn't given up on celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. After the unsuccessful, yet enormously popular attempt to bring Jamie's Kitchen to town, students at Wingham High will get a chance to cook with Jamie and make a world record attempt via a live streamed class on May 16.

Emily: Kimbriki rider Emily Foster has so far secured a second and a third at the Appaloosa Nationals in Tamworth.

Beef Week: The town continues to prepare for Beef Week. School children from across the state will be camping at the Wingham Showgrounds for the 27th annual Wingham Beef Week held from May 12-17.
