On Wednesday 20th September, The Woolshed, world renowned club and function venue, prepared to welcome up to 800 guests present in Cairns for the International Association of Woman’s Police convention. With a full country theme in honour of the 2018 Convention that will take place in Calgary – Canada, The Woolshed pulled out all the bells and whistles with hay bales, large picnic style tables and stage areas to accommodate the guests around the venue. Live music and a line dancing show were at the centre of the event with an acoustic country singer on the ground floor, a rock and country band on the top level and 8 local line-dancers sporting their gingham outfits mingling throughout.
Over the past 3 years this centrally located venue has reached a new high with it’s function offering and is fit to go up against some of the best hotels and Cairns’ venues. With 5 different areas, such as the Cocktail Bar and the open air Balcony, The Cotton Club (ground level) & The Woolshed (first floor) have a space for everyone.
Able to cater for any size group, both venues have audio-visual equipment available at your fingertips. Every function at The Woolshed & The Cotton Club is unique and can be customised from the lighting right down to the bar options. With a personal Event Coordinator to guide you along the way, functions have never been this easy to organise!
Locally owned & operated since 1994, The Woolshed turned 23 this year and shows no sign of slowing down. With a $1m refurbishment split equally between The Cotton Club & The Woolshed, this popular venue is set to become even more of a local favourite. The addition of a retractable roof and window panels to the outdoor dining space, allows the entire area to be fully air-conditioned when necessary. Along with rejuvenated bathrooms, stylish wraparound couches, additional TV monitors and a state-of-the-art sound system, the refurbishment shows their commitment to providing a venue specifically designed for the trop- ics.
Post event, organisers Bev Voros & Sueanne Ford said:
“Everyone had a very good time, and they are truly looking forward to coming to Calgary next year which was our hope with the country theme. One lady approached us, she has attended every conference with her husband since 1971, she said this was the best party she has ever attended! I will take that as a true success!”
“In short…you were amazing to deal with, the venue and food were amazing, the ladies were talking about the great time they had and the amazing food the next day. I am sure anyone who returns to Cairns will definitely return to the Woolshed.”
