Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

THE tra­di­tion of the Cherry Fes­ti­val Ball will make a come­back this year af­ter a seven-year hia­tus.

Fes­ti­val co­or­di­na­tor and com­mit­tee chair­woman Pam Bodsworth said the of­fi­cial event name was not yet de­cided but con­firmed some kind of for­mal dance would take place on Saturday, Oc­to­ber 27, ahead of the fes­ti­val in De­cem­ber.

Mrs Bodsworth also an­nounced that the Aus­tralian Army Band would fea­ture as en­ter­tain­ment at the 2018 ball. It is the same band that fea­tured at the first ball more than 15 years ago.

In other fes­ti­val news, Mrs Bodsworth hosted the fes­ti­val’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week and said it was “pos­i­tive” and saw “good turnout”.

“We’re look­ing forward to getting out there and getting started,” she said.

Mrs Bodsworth said com­mu­nity groups who wanted to sup­port or com­ple­ment the fes­ti­val could con­tact her on 0409 118 296.
