Event description

Description

"Chiltern - the town that sparked the Kelly outbreak" is a commemoration of the rise of the Kelly Gang which will be held in and around the Star Theatre, on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th April, 2019. The weekend event will include a Saturday night dinner at the Vine Hotel complete with bush band, and an impressive Kelly display at the Athenaeum. The town of Chiltern played a major role in the Kelly story as it was here that Dan Kelly’s arrest warrant was issued. Speakers covering the Kelly outbreak will include Brad Webb (author of Ned Kelly: the iron outlaw), Noelene Allen (author of Ellen: a woman of spirit), Paul O’Keefe (Steve Hart’s great great nephew), Alan Crichton (author of Far beyond the falls), Noelene Lloyd (Greta Heritage Group), and Kelly researcher Steve Jager (on Ned’s republic). Proceeds raised will go towards the ongoing preservation of the Chiltern Athenaeum Collection. For further updates, news, and details visit Facebook.
