Red Dirt Bush Dance

Table Cape Tulip Farm welcomes back the Red Dirt Bush Dance.

After a ripper sold out evening of dancing and fun last year, heel and toe back to the farm shearing shed for a night of bush dance tunes from The Bootleggers Dance Band. Dances are "called" so no bushdance experience necessary. CWA style supper served later on. This year's band and caller are an experienced wealth of good times, and we're confident this is going to be our absolute best year yet.  

Heavy boots on boards, loud laughter, beer bottles clinking, and the tuning of strings.  It’s old school fun meets hipster cool at the Red Dirt Bush Dance.

Dress: country casual, bring your dancing shoes and absolutely no heels (it is a shearing shed with a slatted floor). Licensed Bar on Site: 18+ event (NO BYO).

 

Last year our sheering shed took on a new look when national arts organisation BighART told it’s story through a dynamic Ten Days on the Island show called The Acoustic Life of Sheds.  Our little sheering shed became an unreal creative space with musicians Lucky Oceans and Konrad Park put on 8 performances and drew about 600 people over 2 weekends. 

Now we have used the space for some great events including, Photography workshops, pop up playgroups, Christmas partys and last years Bush dance. 

Picture a shed, a simple rural farm shed, fire drums burning away outside and a sky full of stars above your head. Inside it’s decked out with a load of fairy lights and hessian sacks, bales of hay, kegs of beer and a wagon of cider, sweet bush dance tunes from the The Bootleggers Dance Band, then there is supper…did we mention we’re putting on a little supper for you guys.

This is the chance to get back your rural roots, let your hair down, get out the country clothes and  boots and embrace your inner farmer.
