33 sponsors and 206 players attending this years event to help raise funds for the Perth Children's Hospital Foundation.


New single ‘Avondale Heights to Sunshine’ sees Thompson delve even further into this narrative style, with the song telling the gritty story of a suburban Dad trying to escape the trappings of the suburb he was born into. Inspired by a taxi driver’s story about a bridge that was supposed to be built between the suburbs of Avondale Heights and Sunshine in Melbourne’s West, the single’s heavy Australian accent is complemented by the folk expertise of Seth Lakeman – who popped into the studio in between touring the world with Robert Plant.

Come to the Beech Shack to see him play his new single the day after its official launch.
