Blinded by the Light

Saturday 20 August, 2022
Yackandandah Courthouse

Come along to our winter Flickside screening of 1980s-rock-laced drama comedy, Blinded by the Light, the story of British-Pakistani college arts student Javed Khan, who lives in Luton in a family with a domineering father. Depressed by his oppressive family life and feeling he has no future in a hostile community, a newfound friend introduces Javed to the music of Bruce Springsteen. Touched by the rock star’s powerfully eloquent affinity of his own feelings, Javed is inspired to reach out for his own dreams with his own talents.

Tickets are FREE for Arts Yackandandah members.


Great Aunt AND Smith & Jones

Friday 23 September, 2022
7.30pm – 10pm
Yackandandah Courthouse

A double feature of regional folk duos!

Great Aunt, a collaboration between Megan Bird (mandolin, resonator, guitar,) & Chelsea Allen (double bass, percussion), draw inspiration from the traditions of old time, bluegrass, and gospel music with a progressive edge.

Smith & Jones are a Bathurst based duo, made up of keyboard player/vocalist Abby Smith, and guitarist/vocalist Sophie Jones. Their work is centred around the intersection of womanhood and identity within regional areas.

Arts Yackandandah is a community arts organisation that celebrates and supports creativity, artistic talent, and cultural expression within the Yackandandah community, as well as from further afield.

The pandemic has been a challenging time for artists, performers and creative everywhere. Here in Yackandandah, we dove headfirst into those challenges, spending the past year learning to adopt new ticketing, seating and reporting systems, as well as adapting our financial and promotional models to be nimble and responsive to changing circumstances.

All of these new skills have put us in good stead for 2022, and with vaccinations levels rising and restrictions and community concerns easing, we are super excited about bringing a year’s worth of creative content to Yackandandah audiences.

In 2022 you can expect to hear plenty of live music from familiar and new travelling performers, as well as feature concerts by some of our homegrown groups. The Yackandandah Theatre Company is set to return to the stage this year with a brand new live production, as well as a travelling performance by our friends from Highway 1 Theatre Company. Flickside has a great selection of films lined up for the 2022 season, which will launch in April with the much awaited French Film double feature. This year’s arts season will also be packed full of workshops, house concerts, and community celebrations.

With so much great content in the pipeline, now is a great time to renew or take out an Arts Yack membership. In addition to receiving the most up to date information about all upcoming performances and creative happenings, you’ll enjoy discounts on every ticket you purchase, get FREE entrance to all Flickside screenings, and enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that your support helps all of this great content come to fruition. Head to to renew today!

* All Arts Yackandandah events will be undertaken in accordance with the COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines of the time, and patron and artist safety will remain our highest priority.
