What a weekend to enjoy the best of Noosa and guests!

A STAGE tribute to the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, a human circus, a chat with one of Australia's best-known cartoonists, a theatrical insight into the life of Charlie Chaplin, and a three-course progressive prawn lunch.

These are just some of the 85-plus cultural events that will comprise the Noosa Long Weekend Festival program.

Now in its 12th year, the festival takes place over 10 days and nights from today to Sunday, June 23 3 at various venues around Noosa.

Tickets are now on sale.

Festival director Ian Mackellar said the multi-arts genre program which includes music, cabaret, comedy clubs, dance, theatre, literature, forums, film, workshops, food events, supper clubs and free events would tempt every cultural taste and cater to every budget.

"The uniqueness of the Noosa Long Weekend Festival is the diversity of the program of world-class acts on offer all set against the stunning backdrop of Noosa.

"Whether you are a fan of classical music or kamikaze cabaret; literature or long lunches; cartoonists or tea cosies; drama or documentary films or anything in between, the festival provides an opportunity for you to artistically indulge in a broad range of events," Ian said.
