A look back at a previous AFL Grand Final Party…

In 2018, 200 people joined in the fun as the Richmond Tigers won their first premiership for 37 years…and needless to say there were quite a few folk aboard the Tiger train.

While the rest of London slept, the Grand Final Party was in full swing as we welcomed guests from across the globe.

…needless to say, when the final whistle finally went…the crowd went wild.

Finishing at 9am, the after party continued on nearby…

Last year, a number of our Swannies also went exploring the sights of Belfast and Northern Ireland on the Sunday including Black Cab Tours of the Peace Walls and the Giants Causeway.

06 April – JORTS Pub Crawl…the second best day of the year

It’s the second best day of the year with good reason, as our Swans and Swannettes head to East London for an afternoon pub crawl that stretches long into the night. The dress code is simple: Jorts (jeans shorts), required, and as much additional denim as possible, recommended.

So start raiding those 2nd hand thrift shops to get your clobber ready!

(EDITORS NOTE: What’s the best day of the year you ask? Sunday Sippers of course! AKA End of season celebration.)
