Our evening event kicked off at 6pm where we served glasses of wine and a gorgeous tapas buffet provided by the delicious Roasted Brown cafe!
Alice Kiernan, Nella, Jay Wilson & Jill Deering then played acoustic music until 8pm when Coole Swan were kind enough to serve us their lovely liquor and tell us all about their brand.
To close the evening we had the hilarious Neil Curran who did some improv for us where he brought an unsuspecting member of the audience up on stage! They both had everyone in hysterics and it was definitely one of the highlights of the night!
Thank you again to everyone that took part, we’re already looking forward to next year!
