Step back in time as the legendary Mucky Duck Bush Band pays homage to our colonial heritage at the historic Faversham House in York ... and you dance the night away under a blanket of stars. Gates open at 6:00 pm so you can settle in and be ready to take to the lawn when the band takes the stage. The blanket of stars won't keep you warm, so bring a jacket. For comfort, you are welcome to bring blankets and low chairs. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase. Please note that tickets are strictly limited. No BYO  Attendees are welcome to bring picnic blankets and low chairs. 

The two days of heritage activities will include displays in the Town Hall, Saturday we will have talks on the history of the rush to Kalgoorlie to prospect for gold. Historical gardens will also feature.
