All Kinds of Shenanigans!

Shenanigans??? Shenanigans??? The dictionary defines the word as ‘silly or high-spirited behaviour’, with maybe some ‘mischief’ thrown in – but for us it’s one of the best night of the year, as the Shenanigans bush band leads the crowd at a whip-cracking pace in a traditional Australian woolshed dance.

There will be laughter, and some embarrassment, and you might get a headache trying to remember which way to go. But it will be fun! No dancing experience necessary! Come along! Its time to step out!
