We are pleased to announce that this year’s finale concert will again be held at the Healesville Memo Hall from 7.30pm Saturday October 3. Bookings are recommended so watch this space!
Everyone is encouraged to participate but it is not compulsory. Between the Warburton Bendigo Bank community bus and car-pooling we will get everyone there easily. An all-camp rehearsal will be held at Arrabri Lodge on the day. Allow about 50 minutes to get from Warburton to Healesville comfortably. Campers do not need tickets but we do encourage you to invite your friends, relatives and neighbours!

We would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge past concert partners the Warburton Fire Brigade (WFB). They were our community partners from 2016-2018. Local legends Thomas Wilson, Hazel Clothier and Chris Nicholson in particular did a lot of hard work behind the scenes to make this possible. Hazel and Chris were our contacts for all things concert related in 2016 and Thomas, in addition to having been a valued camp participant, went all out in his efforts as our liaison in 2018 to coordinate members to promote our concert at Yarra Valley Ecoss ('The Coop’ at this converted poultry farm scrubbed up quite nicely!) and to run a sausage sizzle, thoughtfully providing vegetarian sausages which went down a treat!
We were happy to be able to share concert proceeds with the WFB for three years and we acknowledge them as important local volunteers and protectors of this beautiful part of Australia in addition to being enthusiastic supporters of bringing music to the local community. We also really appreciated the local SES in 2018 for their help with the logistical challenges of parking!
