Our Christmas breakup @ Eltham Central Pavilion
Dec 6 @ 5:30 pm – 11:00 pm

Let’s celebrate Xmas and the end of the U3A year together.

The evening will start at 5.30pm with pre dinner nibbles and will be followed by a spit roast buffet, desserts and tea/coffee. Entertainment will be provided by G&T and Out of Nowhere. Drinks will be available at bar prices.

The tables will seat 8 people and, where possible, we would like people to book a complete table. You can also book individually but that will obviously make it more difficult to seat you with your friends.

We will be having a raffle so don’t forget your spare change.
