Divine period music including many Tasmanian pieces, by Van Diemen’s Angels (harp, piano, fiddle and flute). Dancing Master David Wanless will lead you through an evening of fun and lively dances. No partner or dancing experience required, though attending the morning workshop would make it even more fun. Dress in something period or formal if you can.

There are also dance workshops during the day on the Saturday.
