With songs led by Dave Johnson, Helen & Tony Romeo, and Ralph Pride, ably assisted by friends from the Bush Music Club. The Eureka Commemoration Committee has for many years been running events to celebrate the Eureka uprising and its impact on Australian political history, particularly the path to democracy from the colonial autocracy of the 1850s. This concert is in addition to its Eureka dinner held in early December. It is a chance to celebrate our history in song. Singing along will be encouraged.

Audience members were encouraged to bring instruments, & a local ukulele group contributed to the singalong.
