Science + Dance

Due to the continuing pandemic restrictions, the Dungog region’s famous masked ball will now be online. Science + dance – Dungog Masked Ball invites everyone to dress up at home and join the party on ZOOM! Also on offer throughout National Science Week will be Year 9 science projects on display throughout the town and a Science Trivia night at the Tin Sheds Brewery.

In the Old Normal there were annual Masked Balls held in Dungog, with food, and drink, and dancing and comedy and prizes and fabulous masks and costumes.

Welcome to the New Normal, where this year’s Masked Ball will be at your place – and it’s also a Dance Party. You provide your own food, drink, dancing, fabulous masks and costumes and join the party on Zoom to enjoy the music, the comedy, the prizes, the special guests, the online links and a smattering of fabulous science.

The 2021 Dungog Masked Ball’s theme is plague, fever, virus, lockdown, pandemic. The agenda is to get everyone:

  • vaccinated
  • informed
  • partying legally in the comfort of your own homes.

Wear a brilliant costume, a splendid mask or invoke a magnificent Zoom background, preferably in theme. Maintain the love and be ready for some bad comedy and a couple of serious moments along the way!

Don’t miss a special guest appearance from the one and only Dr Karl!

This event is being run by the Paterson Allyn Williams Science Hub as part of its National Science Week program.
