A Kitbag of Memories
Mara Music and the Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre, in conjunction with the Blue Mountains Theatre and Community Hub presented A Kitbag of Memories, at the new Springwood Theatre, as a tribute to the men and women who saw active service in the First World War, and to those who worked at home during the war years.
 
Narrated by Christopher Smith, A Kitbag of Memories includes a host of well-known songs from the period, stories collected from descendants of Blue Mountains servicemen and women, and dozens of images from at home and abroad.
 
Originally conceived through the initiative of Peta Williams from the Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre for the centenary of ANZAC, the show features music performed by Mara and Llew Kiek, Jarnie Birmingham, Paul Cutlan and Peta herself.
 
It was received so well that we are looking to present it again for the Anzac Day commemorations in 2017.
