Family fun at Deckchair

The Deckchair Cinema will transform into a circus of colour, music and dance when Relationships Australia NT holds its free family film night as part of National Families Week on Thursday.

Celebrating culture and relationships, the night includes an African drumming workshop, performances by Indigenous dance troupe One Mob Different Country and screening of the popular animation Finding Nemo. 

National Families Week, which runs from 15 to 21 May, aims to bring awareness to the role of families in achieving a happy and healthy lifestyle.

Relationships Australia NT Chief Executive Officer Marie Morrison said the organisation increasingly works with families and children.

“We provide assistance to families in various ways including strengthening relationships, mediation, counselling and support for those going through tough times,” she said.

Relationships Australia NT services 3500 Territorians on average annually and more than 20 per cent are Aboriginal.

“Our Family Film Night is an opportunity for everyone to enjoy a night of free fun and entertainment.

“It will celebrate the different faces of family, tradition and community, and we encourage everyone to attend.”

The Relationship Australia NT Family Film Night starts at 6pm with Finding Nemo screening from 7:30pm.

A tasty array of foods including Greek and Indian, and snacks will be available for purchase.
