Where else can inappropriate development go but cabaret?

Put on your sequins – the Cabaret for West Byron is a fundraiser for Byron Residents Group and will celebrate the Shire’s unique diversity on Saturday June 30.

Byron Lighthouse Band will perform their anti-West Byron hit song, provide solid rock music and have a surprise for the audience with a new song planned to deepen the audience/band synergy.

Live music

Expect amazing dance leaps, drumming and singing when Gabriel Otus Happy Africa follows with a drum jam. Yael’s bellydance group will shimmy and glide to live music. Mark Swivel will bring on the laughs.

It will be held at the Community Centre’s Cavanbah Room, which is located at 75 Jonson St, Byron Bay.

Starts from 7pm.
