Beats and Eats on Q to go ahead later this month

It was cancelled due to inclement weather earlier this year, but Campbelltown's inaugural Beats and Eats on Q festival will go ahead next weekend.

The food and music event will be held on Saturday, May 29.

Locals will enjoy flavours of traditional cuisines from around the world in Queen Street's existing restaurants, including Afghan, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Thai and Japanese.

Queen Street has recently been redesigned to provide more public entertaining space.

Beats and Eats will also feature street performances from musicians and dance artists, as well as drumming workshops and large-scale games in the plaza where Lithgow Street intersects with Queen Street.

A mini Eat Street filled with delicious desserts will make for a delectable after-dinner destination.

Campbelltown mayor George Brticevic said visitors would have a fantastic time at the event.

"There'll be a real buzz around Queen Street with the sounds of drums and some amazing musical and dance performances from local artists," he said.

"So bring the kids down or get together with friends for a great evening of entertainment and music while you grab a bite to eat from one of our local restaurants.

"I know many people were excited for Beats and Eats in March before it was postponed, so it's great that we were able to reschedule this event."

Beats and Eats is part of the On Q activation program to test and trial different ideas and programs to enhance the Queen St precinct, over the coming months.
