Masked in The Channon
After a successful night last year The Channon Spring Masked Ball is back again this year on September 23, from 7.30pm, at the funky The Channon Hall. (Yes, the use of the is tricky here...)
Dont you just love masked balls? So much fun; so much mystery It wasnt me...
This years theme will be A Circus Masquerade and the ball is being organised by The Channon Cultural Collective a group of local people who promote community cultural events and artistic enterprise.
So, dress circus, wear a mask and be entertained by the theatrical and musical likes of StArFiReFlY, Captain Syphilis (?), Pappa J, Clown Doctors, Circus Sue, The Channon Jazz Collective and world music funksters Stipsky.
Food and alcohol will be available.
Part of the monies raised will go toward The ALOLA Foundation, which provides health, advocacy and educational support to women and children in East Timor. It was started by that countrys First Lady, Kirsty Sword Gusmao and local Channon woman Toola Andrianopolous. Good cause.
Tickets are $25/20 and are available from The Channon Store, Dunoon Store and Music Bizarre in Lismore.
