The Festival’s expanded program will embrace the diverse skills of the Cessnock community - from wineries, breweries, restaurants and artisans to artists, historians and musicians. Kick back in country style for a day of revelry with fine local food, wine and music.

On the second weekend, following on from the success of the “Life of Brian”, the Around Hermitage team will be screen a unique film, produced entirely in the Hunter Valley, based on Australia’s first cookery book: “Cookery for the Many as well as for the Upper 10,000” published in 1864.

The Film Festival coincides with the Hunter Valley’s Wine and Food Festival, many events will be held in the area to enjoy over both weekends.
