It can get very hot so we recommend bringing sunscreen and a hat. There will be heaps of umbrellas and plenty of free water to keep you hydrated.

We are delighted that Premium wine sponsor, Chard Farm, returns for the 11th year with their amazing selection of wines which will be available for purchase.

Emerson’s Brewery is back for their 3rd year as our official beer sponsor. With an exciting range of refreshing beers.
