With a purpose of “creating a more welcoming and inclusive Central Coast” The Naughty Noodle Fun haus has very quickly become the Central Coast NSWs Home for cutting-edge Performance and Discourse. The dynamic arts, cultural and entertainment organisation is now a key contributor to the vibrancy and vitality of life within our Central Coast community. Download poster

Festival Director, Australia’s cult pioneer of Queer performance art Glitta Supernova and the team are currently cooking up the “Coastal Twist” 3 day LGBTIQ Arts and Culture Festival this October 4 -6 long weekend. Coastal Twist will mark what has been called a Landmark Festival for the Central Coast.

“An inclusive bright and bold program of free and ticketed events across 3 days and nights, made up of cabaret, drag, film, live music, parties and exhibitions in multiple venues all culminating in a huge oceanfront Fairday with a full day of entertainment, performance, stalls, curated food vendors, rainbow family activities and Puparazzi dog show. Something for everyone, we are expecting over 2,000 people on Fair day alone with a 70% visitor the Coast ratio”.

The 2019 Coastal Twist Festival will be Peninsula based across Umina, Woy Woy and Ettalong, “we are creating a community festival hub with local community organisations and businesses who are aligning themselves with diversity and with inclusion of all people” Venues as varied as the Everglades country club to Ocean Beach Surf club, local beaches and our gorgeous Peninsula Recreation Precinct. Without community Sponsors such as Central Coast Council, ACON, Uniting and SeaFM backing this LGBTIQ celebration could not happen. LGBTIQ celebrations are a vital symbol and Symbols are important.”

“We want to see everybody there as a community, regardless of gender, sexuality, age, ability, together we can further shift existing perceptions of the Central Coast and build a more welcoming and inclusive community which serves not only Central Coast NSW but more broadly Brand NSW as a safe space and destination which aligns itself with Human Rights, Equality and Social Justice. This is the most fun you can have while simultaneously creating a brighter and bigger future for everyone! Our Full Program will be released next month”
