Shadows from the Past

McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery

Checking sale status

Cairns Family History Society together with Cairns Regional Council and featuring Cairns Brass have pleasure in presenting 8 productions of Shadows from the Past, dramatized evening walks through McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery.

A Verger will escort you around the cemetery, pausing at times to introduce one of our pioneers, represented by a community actor, who will tell a little about themselves and share some of Cairns history with you. Some are heart rending while others are intriguing.

When walking, stirring music played by Cairns Brass will resonate throughout the night darkness.

At each performance there can be only 50 people to hear these tantalizing snippets, written and told by the community actors. There are no scary ghost stories, only glimpses from the past.

Generally there is no right to a refund or exchange except as required by law, or as provided in the Live Performance Australia Ticketing Code of Practice. Please refer to Ticketlink Terms and Conditions on this website.
