Here's a report of a typical winter warmer event:

About 400 locals came along to join the huddle and lighten up the December darkness with lanterns, fire Poi & a camp-fire  and warm themselves with mulled wine, soup & other hot drinks, and opportunities to bounce ’n’ boogy to live musical performances.    Studioscape - a local youth music outfit - organised the stage with an impressive line-up of local bands.  Acts included:

  • Phillip Brittian and Chris Frampton (acoustic guitars and vocals)
  • Studioscape Singers and Band (soul, funk, pop covers)
  • Rumboogie (blues)
