Celebrate the silly season at The Bank Hotel this December

If Newtown’s Bank Hotel was Santa Claus, they’d be putting everyone on the nice list, gifting us all another month of irresistible live music. 

The Bank Hotel is located right next to Newtown station. With their live music space Waywards recently all done up, December has never been a better time to soak up some local talent.
