2018 Heritage Ball, Ermington Community Centre, Saturday 19th May.

Click on pictures for full-screen image


As Parramatta Town Hall is being renovated, we booked Ermington Community Centre, not as elegant as the Town Hall, & not available past midnight, but so much easier for parking!

Thanks to Wendy Richmond for coordination of the Ball, to Wendy, Michelle Bolliger, Beck Richmond & their helpers for the lovely supper, to Dave Johnson & the Heritage Ensemble & the callers, and to all those who decorated the Hall, moved furniture, cleaned up ...


We hope to be back at Parramatta next year, but will we be able to return that Hall to it's pristine state & remove all our gear in 30 minutes again?

The Hall was decorated with photos from our early balls, from the first in 1978 to 1989.
