Plans are underway to have a special dinner event at the Dunn Lewis auditorium Tuesday, 8th December, 2020, to allow the crowning of this year’s Princess of the Fleet and the two runners ups.

The event is in it’s early planning stages, but will comprise of a sit down two course meal with Princesses, their partners, their families, dignitaries and members of the Rotary Club of Milton-Ulladulla (the organising body).

Due to covid19 restrictions, there will be no dancing, which is normally a large part of the ceremony.

The auditorium of the Dunn Lewis Centre, Ulladulla was chosen due to it’s ability to fit 300 seated guests, allowing for the current 4 metre square rule.

The event however, will give the young ladies an opportunity to come together and wear their gorgeous gowns.

Tickets are restricted to two guests for each Princess and partner and are available here: https://www.trybooking.com/BMPUN
