The 150th Anniversary of Eudunda
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, our original celebrations, planned for November 2020, had to be postponed. To prevent a second postponement, we have adapted our plans. Instead of a programme packed with events that could conceivably be cancelled due to an unforeseen lockdown, we are emphasising permanent projects that will leave a lasting legacy in the town.
The following programme is subject to change:
**PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL EVENTS AND VENUES WILL HAVE COVID PLANS IN PLACE**
