The Hepburn Shire is known for its natural beauty and its many showcase events. We seek to work cooperatively with the local community to offer a wide range of local events right throughout the year.

Council offer a number of services to help with events including advice on insurance, marketing and media contacts, health – food handling and health regulations, traffic management and risk and emergency management. We can organise meetings with you and our compliance, health, risk management, tourism, recreation and infrastructure staff and also the local emergency services and any other relevant government department to help with the organisation of your event.

Approval is required from Council for all events held in the Shire in public space. All event organisers must contact the Hepburn Shire Council when planning an event at least 6 – 8 weeks prior for event approval. Large events should be in contact at least 6 months prior to their event for approval. Planning approval may also be required for events held on private land. Approval may be required for events that involve public health, serving of food, traffic diversion, road closure, event car parking, and advertising signs.

Highway 1 Theatre Company presents…Proof, by David Auburn

April 14, 2018-April 15, 2018

When things are uncertain, we look for ‘Proof’.

Catherine has spent years caring for her brilliant but unstable father, Robert. His recent death has left her adrift, and attempting to rediscover her independence. Her sister Claire returns after a long absence to take charge of family affairs, but Catherine is intent on fending for herself. Enter Hal, a former student of her father’s, who wishes to enshrine Robert’s genius. While searching through Robert’s 103 notebooks, Hal discovers a family secret that changes everything, and provides more questions than answers.

David Auburn’s award winning play explores the fragility of genius, and the nature of human relationships within families.

Play starts at 5.00pm

Tickets: $39 full, $35 concession.
