Juke Box Mania 2016

It's best described as a "Name That Tune" from every musical genre in a fun, relaxed, party-like atmosphere.

The party begins at 6:00 p.m. and wraps up around 10 p.m. There's even popcorn! The best part is that the funds raised will support FCC's important work in Cambridge and North Dumfries
