MEMBER for Gosford, Liesl Tesch was thrilled to announce the success of Naughty Noodle Fun Haus in obtaining a grant to continue its support of arts and cultural events.


“Naughty Noodle Fun Haus have created an outlet never seen before here on the Central Coast and they’re also the masterminds behind the Coastal Twist, a festival that promotes tourism in our backyard,” Ms. Tesch said.


“I am beyond pleased with the allocation of this funding and I know it will be put to great use in our community.”


Glitta Supernova, the creative director and co-founder of the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus, expressed her excitement about the purchase of new printing equipment.


“It’s a game changer for our organisation because it makes us more independent and we can print our own materials, which is so amazing because a lot of our stuff goes out on the streets to get the word out,” she said.


This year’s Coastal Twist LGBTIQA+ Arts and Culture Festival, which is set to be bigger and better than ever, was scheduled to go ahead in January but is now postponed until late September due COVID-19 restrictions.


Over the six day festival, running from Tuesday 27 September through to Monday 3 October the Central Coast will host talented artists and creators to celebrate diversity and inclusion through performances and fun events.


Ms Tesch says she cannot wait to see the funding in use.


“I look forward to seeing this new printer being used to capacity and the flyers being spread far and wide throughout our community. The Coastal Twist Festival provides so much life to the Peninsula and money to our local businesses, a power that cannot be underestimated especially after the last couple of really difficult years,” she said.


“This is an exciting time for not only Naughty Noodle Fun Haus but all of us and I cannot wait to see you all in rainbow later this year at the event.”
