About the speaker
Toowoomba-raised singer and musician Raquelle Pedler is the founder of Highlands Music Academy (formerly Re:sound Music Studio), which she started to fill a fast-growing market for contemporary music tuition.
One of Toowoomba’s biggest music advocates, Raquelle is passionate about coaching emerging artists and creating opportunities in the local music scene. Many will already be familiar with Raquelle’s incredible voice from weddings, events and local venues, or from her service to the community through Highlands Church.
The Empire Theatre is a heritage-listed theatre designed in an art deco style, reminiscent of the “glory days” of Hollywood with palm trees framing the exterior. It’s recently undergone a refurbishment, and is looking beautiful and grand again! We are so lucky to have a venue like this in town, and can’t wait to show it off to you (but no, we are not in the main theatre with seating for 1500!).
Directions: Come to The Empire as you normally would, and there will be signage to point you to our space upstairs (no, we aren’t in the main theatre – there’s not 1500 of us!).
Parking situation: There’s oodles of parking around The Empire, with a couple of bays just across the street as well as plenty of free street parking.
Access situation: The Empire Theatre’s Bar Lounge is fully accessible.

[ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS]
If it’s free, do I need to register?
Yep! (Please.) Because we need to allocate you some coffee and pastries, and imagine missing out on those…
If you just turn up on the morning, we can’t guarantee you a seat/croissant. So please help a girl out and register.
Do I need to bring anything?
A mug or KeepCup for your coffee, and an open mind! And maybe a notebook if you like.
How long does it go for?
All our events are the same format – doors open at 7.30am, the talk starts at 8.00am and finishes (as much as possible) at 8.30am. Doors will open after the talk, and you’re welcome to stay for another coffee and a chat until 9.00am or so.
All events will be on a Friday morning. We don’t currently have plans for night-time or weekend events, but you never know…
Can I bring my little one?
Absolutely! Everyone is welcome!
If they’re going to go crazy on the croissants, let us know and we’ll put them down as an extra person ;)
What if I miss out on tickets?
We use a waitlist for registrations and release any extra tickets as they become available via a lottery. We’ll send you an email if your name comes up, and priority is given to those who get stuck on a waitlist for 2-3 months.
If you can’t attend, please, please, please release your ticket ASAP so someone else can join us. Please don’t register if you don’t think you’ll actually attend. We will eventually have to take you off the invite list if you regularly don’t show up for events, just to make it fair for those who regularly miss out.
