Workers in City of Greater Shepparton are encouraged to leave the desk and attend a free lunch at Queen’s Gardens on Wednesday next week.

Along with lunch, diners will be treated to a Riverside Ramblers performance entitled ‘‘Roaring 20s and all that Jazz’’.

It’s billed as a, ‘‘musical journey through the era of art deco, flappers, Charleston, fabulous automobiles and, of course, Dixieland jazz. The decade that saw great advancement in electricity, radio, motion pictures, air travel, flamboyant fashion and prohibition.’’ Performance in the Park is part of Greater Shepparton City Council’s Activities in the Park program.

‘‘This is a fantastic opportunity for workers to enjoy their lunch in the fresh air rather than eat at their desks,’’ the council’s Activities in the Park co-ordinator Carmen Nicholson said.

A free barbecue and chairs will be provided.

The performance starts at noon.
