Taylor Swift Tribute Show

Wednesday, 13th April, 2016

Dear Taylor Fans,

The Club listened to your feedback following the Taylor Swift show and acknowledge the show was too short. We had contracted a longer performance which we are currently working through with the promoter.

As a gesture of goodwill the club will be issuing a free Katy Perry ticket to everyone who attended the Taylor Swift show at the Clubs expense.

We aim to always exceed your expectations and hope this gesture goes some way to rectifying what we agree was a very short performance today.

Further instructions will be sent to your email and phone contacts in the coming days.

Thanks for your ongoing support, The Fraternity Team

Castagne Day 2015 at The Frat

Monday, 18th May, 2015

It is the seasonal festival that tends to send people a little nutty in the best possible way.

Hundreds turned out for the Illawarra Italian community's annual Castagne Day festival on Sunday, to celebrate the change of season and indulge in a roasted chestnut or two. Cael Harrower, 5, had a ball of a time in the Water Walker, while others soaked up the food, music and sunshine in the car park of Fairy Meadow's Fraternity Club. In keeping with tradition, Alpini Group member Emileo Felli flame-roasted chestnuts.
