Jumpers and Jazz officially launched their program last night at Churches of Christ.

Attendees were treated to food by One Table, with wine from Ballandean Estate.

Pam Burley thanked their supporters, including Peter Homan, the CEO of Southern Queensland Country Tourism.

Special guests included Desley Done, the lead singer of Dezzie D and the Stingrayz, who have played at the festival for eight years.

Pam also thanked Samantha and Russell Wantling from the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival for their help and support.

She spoke about the importance of major festivals helping each other and working together.

Pam also thanked Churches of Christ, saying they are “more than sponsors”.

Churches of Christ covered half the event, and are a major sponsor.

Churches of Christ will be holding their own events throughout Jumpers and Jazz, including a musical trivia and soup luncheon on Wednesday 27 July.

The lunch and trivia event will run from 11.30 am to 2 pm at the One Table Cafe Function Centre at 223 Dragon Street.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for concession, and $10 for children.

It is recommended you purchase tickets ahead of time as only limited numbers will be available at the door.

Tickets are available from ‘One Table Cafe’ from 8 am to 12 pm Monday to Friday, and 8 am to 12 pm on Saturday.
