EP 19 |

Welcome to this week’s episode of Talkin’ Toowoomba, This week we chat with the Empire Theatre, who like so many others in the entertainment sector has been closed for the longest time. The fantastic news is that they will reopen in July and we hear how that will look for theatregoers.
As you know if you have been listening for a while now, we occasionally throw in a “special day”, but this week there were just too many, so here is our quick pick for just Friday, June 26.
A Shout to all the beauticians in town, Friday is beauticians day, and also Take your dog to work day, World Refrigeration Day, Canoe Day, and my favourite chocolate pudding day! So take your pick and enjoy!
Now in News of the Week
This week sees the start of the upgrade of the Margaret St playground, in Queens Park, they include playground, lighting, and landscape upgrades.
We also see local establishments, like the Merigindan Hotel, Junk, and Zacks, opening up again, with restrictions in force, bookings are a must., check their Facebook pages for more info.
Now let’s get on with the show.
In Ep 19 we also follow up on the success of our speed chats to locals micro businesses, we thought we would spotlight a couple more this week as a nod to the UN’s International Day for Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises this Saturday 27 June, which recognises their contribution to the economy worldwide. Yes, no matter how small you are you do make a difference.
So we speak to Darling Downs Cookie Company and also Threaders two locals showcased at the Handmade Collective
