Children enjoy the concerts.

BOOK produced by Bendigo’s Capital Theatre venues and events team has been launched.

Coming to a Cushion Concert has been written by Liz Duthie and illustrated by Jacqui Lynch, and tells the story of the venue’s popular Cushion Concerts program.

The Capital has been programming Cushion Concerts since 2013, providing pre-school children with the opportunity to experience live performances in a welcoming, affordable and child-friendly environment.

City of Greater Bendigo arts officer Rohan Phillips said the book had been created with support from Creative Victoria.

“We thought it would be a nice way for children to share and relive their experience with family and friends,” Mr Phillips said.

“When they read the book, children will recognise features of the Capital; the columns and portico steps at the front entrance, the carpet and signs in the foyer area as well as the cushions and tent inside.

“The cushion concerts have been one of our favourite community programs. They offer young children the chance to experience some outstanding performances from local as well as internationally recognised performers. “

The book costs $5 and can be purchased from The Capital box office.

Cushion Concerts are held monthly, feature a range of musical genres and also cost just $5.
