Events Diary: VJ75 Day

A very busy weekend at The Swan saw activities galore. The Albert Street Gals provided excellent musical entertainment marking the 75th anniversary of VJ day on Saturday.

The Albert Street Gals

We had some surprise entertainment lined up during the day. The Albert Street Gals did two sets: one mid-afternoon, the other early evening. Their 1940s music and dress went down a storm. It was a fitting tribute to VJ75 Day and the we thank the girls for all their time, Well worth it.

Getting Ready

There was a lot of preparation work required to get The Courtyard ready for the BBQ and for The Albert Street Gals to perform. The team worked hard to get the place looking fab and ready for what turned out to be a superb day.
