Neill Thacker’s memorial will take place on Saturday 18 September at the Brisbane Multicultural Arts Centre in Brisbane, Australia. Neill grew up in Brisbane after immigrating from England when he was four years old. You can read our obituary on Neill, our much-loved former Head of Performing Arts, here.

If you would like to join the celebration of Neill’s life, a live stream will be available from 7.45 am Thailand time (10.45 am AU time) via Maddy Thacker’s public Facebook page.

All those attending in person or virtually are encouraged to wear purple – Neill’s favourite colour.

There must be lights burning brighter somewhere. Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue.
