It is with great regret that Wyndham City Council is cancelling all council-run events, activities or programs that are organised for the general public for the next 60 days due to the evolving impact of COVID-19.

While it is a very difficult decision to make, the health and safety of our community and staff must take precedence. This decision is consistent with actions taken at a State level to cancel large gatherings or run events without spectators.

We thank you for your understanding.

Refunds or, where applicable, credits will be available for ticketed events.

We will be contacting ticketholders on a show by show basis in the coming days.

If you suspect that you or a family member has COVID-19 you should call (not visit) your GP or ring the national COVID-19 Information Hotline on 1800 020 080.

For the most current information, resources and advice please visit The Department of Health and Human Services website, https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus


Venue: Encore Events Centre – 80 Derrimut Road, Hoppers Crossing, Victoria

The Beggars present with tremendous style and skill, drawing songs from our history, school days, the telly, the bush,

the radio, the road and our hearts. Featuring Australian folk and country classics alongside 1960s pop hits like “Friday on My Mind” and “Georgie Girl”. The Beggars also include their own compositions and have some hilarious suggestions for our new national anthem.

The Beggars are multi-instrumentalist Stuart Day, double bassist Quinton Dunne and Australian songbird Renee Donaghey. They are consummate vocalist, musicians and achieve a stunning harmony blend.
