NSW HOLBROOK HALFWAY DANCE
Featuring Chris Froggatt (NSW), Howard Cockburn (VIC), Mike Davey (VIC)
Holbrook Shire Hall, Cnr Albury & Young Sts, Holbrook
The first Holbrook weekend was held in 2019 as a one off dance. It was so successful it was decided to put the weekend on again in 2020, however the 2020 dance was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic. We tried again in 2021 but the pandemic this time cut the weekend short. In 2022, we tried again and we were lucky enough that the weekend went ahead without a hitch.
In 2023 the Holbrook Halfway Dance will be held again and we look forward to providing you with a weekend of dancing, fun, socialising, games and plenty of delicious food. Don't miss out on this fun weekend.
