Delicious food and world-class music are on the menu at Camperdown’s Five Star Function Centre.

International Celtic rock powerhouse Claymore will perform at the Camperdown Recreation Reserve venue as part of the Robert Burns Festival.

Central Ward councillor Cr Ruth Gstrein said Claymore was a crowd favourite and routinely brought down the house at festivals around the world.

“Claymore are outstanding entertainers who have performed in New York, Scotland, France and New Zealand as well as almost every folk festival around Australia.

“They tap into Scottish traditional music but play it in an upbeat, modern way that appeals to all musical tastes.

“And what better way to enjoy them than with a hearty feast at the Five Star Function Centre? For $40 per person you get the show, a roast dinner and dessert.”

Bookings are essential at or on 5593 7100.
