Bush Music Club Inc.

Colonial Balls

The club has been running two full dress colonial balls a year, but unfortunately low numbers mean we will not be running a ball at Maitland this year.
Prices have been held astonishingly low for a catered ball -
and are even cheaper if you get in early!

The Heritage Ball 2018

The Bush Music Club Inc. will hold its 2018 Heritage Ball in Ermington Community Centre on 19th May 2018.

A grand occasion for your enjoyment with music by our renowned Heritage Ensemble. Dress in your favourite fashion from Colonial times and be ready to dance the night away. Ball tickets will again be limited. A light supper is provided, with refreshments available throughout the evening.

Parramatta Town Hall is being renovated, so is not available for hire this year.

Please note the Ball will finish at 11pm as the Hall needs to be vacated by midnight. To allow for this early finish, the ball will start at 6pm.

$35 for BMC members
$40 for non-members
$30 for students

A discount of $3 per person can be obtained for a set of 4 couples (8 tickets) booked and paid for at the same time, before 6th May
