The Dressmaker: Footballers’ Dance

Join us as we recreate the Footballers’ Dance from The Dressmaker film to celebrate the Exhibition’s last days at Rippon Lea.

Cha Cha back into the 50s and see the Rippon Lea Grand Ballroom transformed into a rocking dance floor. Marvel at the vintage cars, give your shoes a workout dancing along to the 1950s style band and take home a memento of the night with a picture at the photo booth with friends and family. So put on your best 50s style cocktail outfit and enjoy a night of extravagance and excitement!

The Dressmaker Costume Exhibition will also be opened for a special late night viewing from 8pm-10pm.

Drinks will be available at bar prices, cash and EFTPOS available.
