The Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival is back in 2021, with a great variety of entertainment on offer from March 26 to 28.

The first ticketed event will be held at Kurri Kurri High School on the Friday afternoon, when the school will once again host its popular Retro High Tea.

The Rock 'n' Roll Express returns to Richmond Vale Railway Museum for this year's festival, with tickets including a twilight train ride, live entertainment and a light supper (BYO picnic).

The Friday night show at Richmond Vale will be Rock 'n' Roll Heaven (a tribute to the dearly-departed stars of rock 'n' roll, including Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny O'Keefe and more), while festival favourites Jumpin' Jukebox will perform on the Saturday.

Weston Workers Club will host the fabulous Burlesque Idol Australia grand finale - which has been part of the festival since 2018 - on the Friday night.

It's the first of three big nights of live entertainment at Weston Workers Club, with the rockabilly blues star Louis King and DJ Gav performing on the Saturday night, and Jumpin' Jukebox to close out the festival on the Sunday evening.

FAVOURITES: Jumpin' Jukebox will close out the Nostalgia Festival at Weston Workers Club on Sunday, March 28.

Festival manager Lesley Morris said tickets to these events are selling fast, particularly the Burlesque Idol and Louis King shows.

Ms Morris said all tickets purchased for 2020 events are valid to the same event in 2021, and that all events will be run under the COVID restrictions that are in place at the time.

Weston Workers Club will also host a performance by Chance2Dance - a dance school for young people with disabilities and special needs - on the Saturday afternoon at 1.30pm; followed by the festival's best dressed competitions (juniors at 2pm; couples at 3.15pm, traditional at 4pm and Miss Modern Day at 4.45pm).

While there's no free live entertainment in Rotary Park this year due to crowd restrictions, the retro marketplace will be open in the park on the Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4pm, and the Shannon's Show 'n' Shine will be held at Kurri Kurri Sportsground on the Sunday only.
