VeryLocal Streaming

Fri July 31 - Sun August 16

$15.00 – $25.00

Immerse yourself in the Orange region from the comfort of your couch and celebrate the small moments and local stories of the people, places and produce that make this region unique.

For the first time in 2020, the Orange Winter Fire Festival will simultaneously launch Australia’s first regional SVOD (subscription video on demand) platform, called Very Local Streaming Service (VeryLocal) showcasing several digital channels featuring locally produced content, including a dedicated Slow Television channel.

VeryLocal will run from the end of July to mid August 2020 and will take audiences into the depths of the Central West winter, as it features top class chefs and sommeliers, artisans, indigenous astronomy and the local environment. Highlights include former Rockpool chefs presenting high stakes cooking demonstration “Do Not Try This At Home” and “Wine Tasting with Mary and David”, a virtual wine tasting event hosted by top local sommeliers Mary Nelson and David Collins. The Slow Television channel highlights include a meditative trip into the local mountainside forests with kangaroos, knitting by the fireplace and scenes from regional farms and vineyards.

One-off event or season-pass tickets available soon to a range of compelling and intimate insights into the Orange region.
