MainFM presents CLUB EURO – NYE at Theatre Royal Castlemaine

MainFM presents CLUB EURO: a NYE party at the Theatre Royal.

A hand-picked crew of some of MainFM’s finest DJs will be bringing the party to this NYE. Enjoy fun drink specials, prizes, dance floor hits and a bit of pizzazz. The courtyard will be open and looking lovely, while the Theatre Royal bandroom will become a classique nightclub.

CLUB EURO: Think – a little bit Eurovison, a little bit glam, a little trashy, 1970s-1990s nightclub culture, from Manchester to Milan, Berlin to Barcelona. Slick back the hair, put on that eyeliner, dress up in party attire for a night of dancing and good times with the amazingly eclectic Castlemaine crowd.
