Hip Hop Dance Workshops

Council will be hosting Hip Hop Dance Workshops for all ages at the end of September 2020. 

Classes will run in age-appropriate groups with 3 sessions per age group across 3 consecutive days, except the adult group which runs for 2 days only. 

Tickets will cost $16.50 per person for the 3 sessions (2 sessions for adults). Places are limited. ​​

The workshops will be facilitated by Elements Collective and award-wining dance company and will use a COVID-Safe plan. 

For more information or to book in go to or call 1300 005 872. 

Council was excited to bring Queensland Ballet to the region in early 2020 to deliver a 4-day Dance Camp for 5-12 year olds. These fully-booked workshops gave local young dancers a great opportunity to work directly with Queensland Ballet dance teachers right here in the Lockyer Valley. 

​​​​The 2020 Dance Workshop program was designed following community consultation​ on the most sought-after dance styles workshops and is generously funded by a Regional Arts Development Fund grant which is a partnership between Lockyer Valley Regional Council and the Queensland Government. 

​​​​Community Movies

Council occasionally provides community movies on a large inflatable screen in partnership with local community groups and schools. Events are usually organised and run by the community group or school, with the screen, projector and operator provided by Council, subject to conditions.

Community groups interested in hosting a movie should download and read the Outdoor Movies - Overview for Community Groups prior discussing dates with Council. 

As a guide, Council usually waives the $350 fee for the equipment and operator, where Council deems the event to present a significant community strengthening and capacity-building opportunity, Schools and community groups are usually responsible for any screening licences. 

Council aims to spread community movie nights across the region in an equitable manner in response to community requests and provides a limited number of community movie events each year.

Community groups are encouraged to list their events on the Events Calendar on the tourism website

Once you have read the Overview for Community Groups​, please contact Council's Community Activation Team on or by calling 1300 005 872.

​Inflatable Soccer Field

​​​Council has an inflatable soccer field that can be loaned out to community groups and schools for the purpose of community building and fundraising. 

Community groups interested in hiring the Inflatable Soccer Field should download the Inflatable Soccer Field Instructions as well as the Hire Application Loan Agreement Booking prior to contacting Council. 

While loan of the Inflatable Soccer Field is generally free, Council reserves the right to charge a bond ​against potential damage and or loss. Hirers are fully responsible for any damage, loss or injury that occurs while the equipment is in their possession and care.

Bookings are subject to availability - which can be checked by contacting Council's Community Activation Team on 1300 005 872 or emailing ​

Disaster-ready Community Groups

Council recognises that community groups of all shapes and sizes play an important role in times of disaster. They may provide support services to people who have been directly affected by floods or fires; they may provide volunteers to help clean up; they may get programs up and running so that people can continue with as much of normal life as possible; or​ they may help in other ways. 

For groups to be able to help following disasters, they need to be reasonably disaster proof themselves. To assist your group to be prepared and able to respond in a timely manner, we encourage you to download​ these resources below and share them with your group. 

Remember, if you wait until a disaster strikes to think about preparing, it will likely be too late. Make time at your next group meeting to discuss your preparations. 

If you need assistance, contact Council's Disaster Management Team on 1300 005 872 or email us
