If you find yourself in bed before midnight this November 17, you can be guaranteed you’re missing out on one of the biggest nights to rock Wonthaggi in decades.

There’ll be no better time to channel your inner Sandy and Danny, and dust off those dancing shoes for Wonthaggi CFA‘s first annual ’50s Rock’n’Roll Dance.

Classic country rockabilly stars Billy O’Neill and the Headliners will keep the dance floor swinging and jiving with hits from the ’50s and ’60s all night, but the music won’t be the only thing taking you for a trip down memory lane.

The dress code is strictly vintage; whip out your old poodle skirt, oil up your leather jackets and don’t forget the Brylcream!

And dressing the part isn’t the only way you’ll look good at the dance.

A selection of hot rods will be on call throughout the evening and for a small donation, you can make sure you arrive in style too.

Held at the Wonthaggi Town Hall (just like the old days!), the dance will not only raise vital funds for the CFA, but give you a chance to let your hair down and party like it’s the 1950s!

Tickets are $50 each and selling fast, so make sure you get yours before it’s too late and get ready for a rockin’ good time.

They are available for purchase from South Coast Real Estate, 2/23 Murray St, Wonthaggi and South Coast Decor, 120 McKenzie Street, Wonthaggi, or by calling 0423 971 465 during business hours.

Supper will be provided on the night, while drinks will be available at bar prices.

Doors open at 7.30pm, with hot rod pick-ups available between 6.30pm and 8.30pm – bookings are essential.

The night will also include prizes for best dressed and best dancer, as well as door prizes.
