Brookfield Show Society Lines Up 3 New Events

The Brookfield Show Society has three events lined up at the Brookfield Showground over the next two months — the Shell Green T20 Cricket Match in April, and both the Brookfield Ball and the Brookfield Show later in May 2021. 

Shell Green T20 Cricket Match

Scheduled for the 25th of April 2021 is the annual Shell Green T20 Cricket Match, which will be held at Brookfield Showgrounds at 10:00 a.m. on Anzac Day, complete with a service to honour fallen servicemen and servicewomen from Australia and New Zealand. 

The game has become an integral part of the Anzac Day commemoration, and this year’s match will mark the 10th anniversary of the first meeting between Brigadier Jason Blain’s Army XI and Lord Mayor’s Brookfield United Cricket Club XI.

Participation has become a tradition for emerging army players, serving as a rite of passage as participants are awarded a ‘Baggy Shell Green’. Every year, the Lord Mayor will award the winning team’s captain a shield, and a member of the late Corporal Matthew Hopkins’ family will award players with titles such as ‘Best on Field’ or ‘Corporal Matthew Hopkins Player of the Match Award’.

Brookfield Ball

Plan a glammed up date night at the Brookfield Showgrounds at the 110th Brookfield Ball, 7:00 p.m. on the 18th of May 2021. The event will offer all-inclusive tickets that cover champagne, wine, beer and soft drinks, as well as a wide range of food both hot and cold for attendants to indulge themselves with.

The Brookfield Ball comes with an evening of entertainment, including a live performance from the local Brookfield band The Setting Suns. Attendees are encouraged to put on their best formal attire and follow COVID-19 requirements applicable at the time.

Brookfield Show

Also highlighting an eventful May is the Brookfield Show 2021, which will also be held at the Brookfield Showgrounds. This event celebrates regional and metro agriculture, spanning three days from the 14th of May all the way to the 16th, with each day offering attendants unique festivities and displays such as the FMX Motorcycle Stunts on the 15th. 

The show will feature various activities and exhibits such as horse rides, art pavilions, pig racing, sheep shearing, combat archery, and whip-cracking workshops. 

The Brookfield Show’s Dog Competition will also run for over two days due to its popularity, as will the beloved Gill’s Rodeo — an event scheduled for both the 14th and the 15th featuring Happy Hour, bucking bulls, and live music from Route 33 and INEXCESS.
