History relived

THE theatrical piece A Question of Honour was played in Coal Creek’s court house over the weekend.
All three performances at the Korumburra venue attracted full audiences.
The show featured a story about two periods of conflict in Korumburra’s history: the mining industry and the story of the Coal Creek Historical Park and Museum.
This year, each performance was accompanied by cuisine of the period, including a traditional colonial dinner featuring roast goose and a Victorian afternoon tea.
Coal Creek site coordinator Rowena Ashley was pleased with the weekend.
“The play talks about the history of Korumburra and its association with mining, and how that locks into Coal Creek and why it was built,” she said.
“A lot of people didn’t really know why Coal Creek is here. A Question of Honour gives a really good snapshot of the community’s passion to preserve the town’s history.
“Then people can better understand why Coal Creek was built to preserve that story.”
