Arts enthusiasts have converged on Deloraine each biannual Originals Only Night for the past decade.
The upcoming event on Saturday will host an assorted array of musicians, artists, poets, dancers and storytellers.
Run by the Deloraine Dramatic Society, the community arts night attracts first-time performers to seasoned artists.
Event coordinator Suz Haywood said people were attracted to the “alchemy of being on the stage”.
Each performance had to be an original work, which gave artists an opportunity to test their new work with a generous audience, Haywood said.
The artists all performed 10 minute tasters so people could experience different genres without having to sit through an hour long show of the same content, Haywood said.
The Originals Only Night will be held at the Meander Valley Performing Arts Centre at Deloraine from 7pm on April 21.
