Thursday 21st January, Friday 22nd Jan or Sat 23 Jan

John Shortis and Moya Simpson, Bungendore’s own musical satirists, are coming to Contentious Character with an air of optimism, to present Raise a Glass and Ruffle Some Feathers, an original show that doesn’t shy away from the year we’ve all just survived, but will ask you to charge your glasses and drink to the hope of a more fruitful 2021. It can’t get any worse.
