Expresstival will host a range of entertainment, including live bands, belly dancing, visual arts, international food stalls, face painting, henna tattooing and a bouncy castle, with 100 per cent of funds raised set to go to charity.

Guild president Sheridan Young said the event would headline Anti-Poverty Week and give back to two worthy charities.

‘The event will give back to Manna Inc, an awesome charity that feeds the homeless every day and The Smith Family, which really empower young people to get what they need to be successful at school,’ she said.

The two charities received 50 free tickets for those in their services to enjoy a free day of entertainment.

‘The guild does a lot of different events but this one is special because its function is to give back to the community and to raise money,’ Sheridan said.

The Weekender has two double passes to give away. Send your name, address and daytime phone number to Expresstival Giveaway, PO Box 885, Joondalup WA 6919 or email weekender@communitynews.com.au.
