Things to do in Murray Bridge: November 26-December 2, 2021

Here's what you need to know about Amity Dry's cancelled performance, The Anti-Claus, the Motorbike SA road race championships and more.

The big draw this weekend was going to be a performance by singer, writer and TV star Amity Dry, but the late breaking news this week is that she won’t get here til 2022.

Instead, perhaps you could take the family along to see The Anti-Claus, an original Christmas play by Murray Bridge Players and Singers – click here to read all about it.

There’s motorbike racing at The Bend on Saturday and Sunday.

History buffs, don’t forget that there’s an interesting lecture coming up for you, too – see Wednesday’s entry below.
