Get ready to rock’n’roll

Blast from the past: the Wonthaggi Fire Brigade is bringing back the 1950s and 60s with its first annual Rock’n’Roll Dance at the Wonthaggi Town Hall on November 17.

GET ready to bop, swing and hand jive when Wonthaggi is taken back to the 1950s and 60s for a night you do not want to miss.

Just when you thought the days of town hall dances featuring classic moves like the twist, the mashed potato and the boogaloo were long gone, the Wonthaggi Fire Brigade is bringing them right back with its first annual Rock’n’Roll Dance on November 17.

With live music by Billy O’Neill and the Headliners bringing you all the greatest hits from the 50s and 60s, and a dress code to match, you will literally feel like you have been transported back in time.

And if you know anything about old school rock’n’roll, it’s not only about what you wear and how you dance, but how you get there in the first place.

For those who book early, a hot rod pick-up from the Wonthaggi area will be available for a donation, guaranteeing you rock up to the dance in one of the hottest rides of the 50s and 60s.

And the biggest bonus of all?

You won’t have to worry about curfew!

With only 200 tickets available, be sure to grab your spot early and don’t forget to book your hot rod pick-up to avoid disappointment.

Tickets are $50 each and are available from South Coast Real Estate, 2/23 Murray St, Wonthaggi and South Coast Decor, 120 McKenzie Street, Wonthaggi, or by calling 0423 971 465 during business hours.

Supper will be provided on the night while drinks will be available at bar prices.

Doors open at 7.30pm, with hot rod pick-ups happening between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.

The night will also include prizes for best dressed and best dancer, as well as door prizes.
