The movie marathon will kick off the week on Friday afternoon, with Night at the Museum (Secret of the Tomb), Soul Surfer and Hunt for the Wilderpeople to air back to back at The Regent Cinema in Murwillumbah.

That will kick off at 1.15 pm AND before you ask, the popcorn is free too (other food and drink can be purchased).

You have to get in quick for a spot, with bookings essential due to Covid-safe measures.

Other activities over the course of the week include a ‘Creating Comfort’ workshop, where kids can create their own sensory toys to help relax and stay focused.

While budding poets and musicians are being invited to a free performance evening at The Citadel in Murwillumbah.

Mayor of Tweed Chris Cherry is encouraging Tweed’s young people to take part in one or more of the events on offer.

“This year’s theme, ‘Together More Than Ever’, highlights the need for young people to be there for each other and come together during difficult times,” she said.
