To achieve great results takes a lot of work and a team effort.

Producing a world class festival of music, theatre, food and thought means you need a great community and some fantastic volunteers to help make the miracles happen.

Last Thursday, those very volunteers were thanked for their hard work and dedication.

This year was the largest festival in the 16-year history of the event and thousands of hours of effort were put in behind the scenes to bring the newly-named 10-day festival to life.

Noosa alive! Festival Director, Ian Mackellar thanked loyal supporters, many of whom volunteer their time year after year, and business sponsors, including our Tewantin Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank.

“An enormous amount of logistics goes into the planning of this event,” he said.

“The program this year was very well received and we had some great artists share their talents with us. We’re still collating statistics but what I can share with you is that it was the largest 10-day event we have presented in the 16-year history of the event. We certainly have broken all box office records in our history which is clearly a reflection of everybody’s contribution,” Ian said.

Tewantin Community Bank branch manager, Wayne Hoens was at the volunteers’ function and said Bendigo Bank’s commitment to the festival since 2014 has gone hand-in-hand with the support his branch continues to receive.

“Our business may be about banking, but what we’re really about is our community through projects and sponsorships that benefit the whole of Noosa,” Wayne said.

“That’s why through sponsorships like Noosa Alive! locals and visitors alike, can see the good our sponsorships can do. It’s through locals who bank with us that we can us our banking profits to keep making great things happen,” Wayne added.

Next year, Noosa alive! will run from July 20-29.
