Are you ready to rock?

The Substitutes band members playing music.

Monday 1 October 2018

The Seniors Festival is just around the corner, with plenty of fun planned for October.

Mount Alexander Shire Council is proud to present the classic band The Substitutes who will play a free concert at the Castlemaine Town Hall.

The Melbourne act is made up of veteran 60s and 70s musicians who play the best (and the lost gems) of the period.

The band features Neil Scott (ex. British ‘70s rock band Chalice) on vocals and guitar, bassist Peter Robinson (ex The Strangers and ‘80s on the Edge), drummer Peter Reed (ex. New Dream, Gary Young) plus the punk energy of Peter Summers on guitar and keys (ex. Riverina Playboys).

Enjoy the show at 2.00pm on Friday 12 October at the Castlemaine Town Hall.

Make the most of all the other activities as part of this year’s Seniors Festival. Keep an eye out for the program of events at various locations around the shire or visit the Castlemaine Community House website www.cch.org.au.

Don’t forget to check out the Seniors Festival opening event at the steps of the Market Building on Mostyn Street, Castlemaine. The event starts at 11.00am on Saturday 6 October with the fabulous Bendigo Chinese Association Lions and Drums and many more colourful entertainers.

Pop into the Market Building after the launch to see the Seniors Festival Expo where you’ll find information on groups and organisations that provide services for seniors. The expo runs all weekend.

The Seniors Festival Steering Committee have done a tremendous amount of work to coordinate this year’s event, which is sure to be a lot of fun.

This year’s local Seniors Festival is organised by the Seniors Festival Steering Committee in partnership with Council and Castlemaine Community House.
