Tasmanian talent to lead party

AN all-Tasmanian line-up will help ring in the New Year at Launceston's Royal Park next week.

Juliane Di Sisto will headline the Tuesday night event, capping off a massive year in which she found fame on  The Voice  and oversaw the vocal direction of Encore Theatre Company's production of  Annie .

Chairwoman Lou Clark said the event would also feature a musical tribute to the Fabulous Picasso Brothers' frontman Philip Crothers, who died in a single-car crash in July.

Ms Clark said Crothers was well-known around Launceston, and most performers at the event would have had some association with him.

She said the family-focused evening would   feature the usual food and wine stalls, and fireworks at 9.30pm and midnight.

``We will have lots of stuff for kids, with plenty of free activities once you've paid admission, and people can bring a picnic along if they don't want to buy food there,'' Ms Clark said.

The event kicks off at 5.30pm on Tuesday, December 31. Tickets are $15 for adults, $7.50 for children aged 12 to 17, free for children under 12 and $39 for two adults and up to three children.

Tickets are available at Launceston Travel and Information Centre or at the gate. For more information, visit http://www.festivale.com.au/new-year-on-royal.
