This year’s French National Day celebration will be held at the Daylesford Town Hall on Sunday the 14th of July.

It will be presented by the Daylesford Community Brass Band and the U3A Hepburn Shire’s Le Cercle Francais.

We will be treated to a magical, musical Grand Tour of Europe with music from Italy, Switzerland, a brief trip to Kyiv and of course back to France.

With performances from the Brass Band and from some soloists including Christine Douglas, it will be a marvellous evening of music.

Come at 5pm for a 5.30 start. BYO food, drinks, crockery, cutlery and glasses.

Make up a table of 10 or join one and make new friends.

Wear something French if you can. There will be prizes for best costumes, best French themed table and some amazing raffle prizes as well.

Bookings are essential. Contact Monica Cole 0425 851 679, or

Tickets are $25. Proceeds go to the Band for new instruments.

The Band’s major sponsor is the Community Bank Daylesford District.
