Last year’s Broken Heel Festival attracted a large crowd in the Silver City. Last year’s Broken Heel Festival attracted a large crowd in the Silver City.

The Broken Heel festival promises to be even wilder this year, with over 20 acts  and an odd variety of events.

It will include a chicken champagne breakfast, an outrageous main street parade; art exhibitions and markets; a schnitzel crawl; ping pong competitions; and of course, an inevitably ribald screening of the legendary film itself.

Those who attend will even have the chance to meet Shirl (actress June Bennett) who in one of the film’s most memorable moments, dared to take on Bernadette in a drinking competition.

Road trippers, fun seekers and those all dressed up with nowhere to go are welcome to the Broken Heel Festival.

Foundation Broken Hill has lent its support to the extravaganza.

“This is a fantastic initiative for Broken Hill and has already demonstrated how successful it can be,” said chairman Vince Gauci said.

“We believe support in the early years is imperative to longevity and we are therefore pleased to be a part of that.”

The festival will be held from September 9 to 11.
