Cattle Royal – aka: The Great Crash-Dance
29 October marks 88 years since the Wall Street Crash of 1929 – the Great Crash that signalled the beginning of the end of the roaring 20s and the jazz age. 2017 sure is better than 1929 – I mean, it’s not like there’s any kind powerful madman in charge of a growing military banging on about a return to greatness, yeah?*
You’ll all love the country bowls club prices, which make you think it’s 2007. And more than that, you’ll love the chance to dance your socks off in Cowaramup’s brilliant backroom dance hall to the sounds of some of your favourite local DJ tunes. Drinks and dinner available.
*oh hang on…
