The Thursday Night Live – Lockdown Series launched in April 2020 as the economic impact of COVID-19 restrictions for live performances and gatherings of people were starting to be felt by our region’s talented local artists.

The weekly one-hour livestreamed musical event ran for 12 weeks and was a huge success with more than 50,000 performance views across the series, and people tuning in from all over the world to enjoy live music during the lockdown period.

Importantly, the Thursday Night Live – Lockdown Series was a simple and effective way for Penrith City Council and the public to show support for local artists and musicians at a difficult time.
