Saturday 10th Aug
SWING HIGH, SWING LOW, SWING GO - FAREWELL SOUTH MELBOURNE COMMONS
South Melbourne Commons, Cnr Bank & Montague St, 7:00pm
Swing High, Swing Low, Swing Go, is a final farewell fundraiser spectacular for Friends of the Earth’s South Melbourne Commons.
Please join us on Saturday 10th August for a Swing themed evening which includes delicious cocktail food, drinks, a welcome from Farther Bob Maguire, free Swing Dance lesson and music by Michael McQuaid's Red Hot Rhythmakers to dance you into the night.
If swinging isn’t your thing, then the night is still a wonderful opportunity to get together with old friends, mingle with other fantastic people (like you) and have a final marvel at the heritage hall, parquetry floors, ornate stage and cool cats strutting their stuff on the dance floor.
The South Melbourne Commons is being forced to shut down, but our vision of the Commons lives on. Come farewell the old address and help secure the new. Highs and lows are inevitable, swinging out in style, compulsory.
Tickets are on sale through our website, www.commons.org.au and we invite you to spread the word through Facebook www.facebook.com/MelbCommons .
Tickets are limited: $70 Full; $50 for Friends of the Earth & Commons members & concession. All food and beverage included.
