Shearers’ Ball

The Shearers’ Ball returns to its traditional venue, the Yarralumla Woolshed, for a great night’s dancing to round out the MFS 50th Anniversary celebration event. Music from the Bush Capital Band, featuring a collection of fine musicians from within the MFS.

No experience is required, no need to bring a partner, all dances will be called and taught on the night so just come along in less formal colonial gear or smart casual dress and comfortable shoes and join in the fun.

Shearers’ Balls have been around in regional Australia for a long time. Traditionally, they were usually held at the end of the shearing season before itinerant shearers moved away for a well-earned break or for other work.
