Walsh Issues Invitation to Parliament House
Friday, 1st March 2019
Leader of The Nationals and Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh has issued an invitation to the people of Murray Plains Electorate to visit Parliament House on Sunday 17th March 2019.
“The Victorian Parliament is celebrating Cultural Diversity Week with an open day filled with music, dancing and food from around the world,” Mr Walsh said
“Entry is free and everyone is welcome.”
A self-guided tour will be available in a number of languages and community guides will be on hand to answer questions in each of those languages.
There will also be cultural performances taking place on the iconic steps of Parliament House throughout the day, and a diverse lineup of musicians will entertain in Queen’s Hall.
Mr Walsh said visitors can sit in the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council Chambers, and visit the magnificent Parliamentary Library.
“The architecture of Parliament House, especially the Legislative Council Chamber is quite remarkable.
“Over the years there have been refurbishments to Parliament House, but the Council Chamber remains one of the best examples of the style of building of its time and is well worth a visit.”
“This is a great opportunity for Victorians to see their Parliament and to gain an appreciation of the grandeur of the building and the diversity of cultures it represents.”
