Call out to your extended family, bring your own marquee, hold a traditional family picnic and enjoy the fun.

A Welcome to Country, an official opening then the cricket match, recreating Broke v Bulga 1874, a deep rivalry. Broke School to be part of the fun with traditional games, people in historic costumes, picnics, a giant birthday cake! Time to catch up, to remember and reminisce.

And all day, the two churches will have exhibitions, and the Story of Broke exhibition will be on in the Broke Hall and a free carriage ride will take visitors around the village to see the historic buildings.

On Sunday,13 October, come to the Story of Broke and learn about the past

– the families that made Broke,

– be part of updating the time capsule for another 200 years,

– sign the Broke Banner if you haven’t already done so.

And then at 11.30 take part in the McNamara Mile, walk from the Bridge to Blaxland Street, say hi, share stories, on the walk or at the Hall.

Add the dates to your calendar and keep an eye out for future posts including FAQs which will give updates to help your planning, tell your friends.
