Wander in for gypsy banquet

CELEBRATING the nomadic fellowship of the world’s largest wandering culture will be the flavour of this Saturday’s international cafe in Ipswich.

The Gypsy Fire ceremonial feast marks the 26th cafe since its inception by Ipswich Multicultural Projects more than two years ago.

Vasil, the King the Gypsies, will be the star of the event when he and his family entertain guests with music, dance and food.

Projects president Hedy Keogh said a large cauldron of stew would be served based on the troupe’s own secret recipe.

“We ask people to wear something gypsy to celebrate the event,” she said.

Entry price is $20 which includes a three-course meal.

The event will begin at 6.45pm in the Masonic Hall, Roderick and Nicholas Sts, Ipswich.

For tickets phone 0414 703 842.
