Whats On

What's on this weekend

LADIES and gentlemen, partner up for some serious swing dancing this weekend.

The town is alive with Wintersun shenanigans, from car clubs to big bands. If jive ain't your bag, there's a nice quiet set of DJs playing tonight - Ben Morris and MC Losty (pictured) at the Coffs Hotel and the legendary Kid Kenobi at the Planto.
