Highly revered philanthropist Dame Elisabeth Murdoch often opened the gates of Cruden Farm in Langwarrin in aid of a good cause. Fortunately the caretakers of her estate continue to do so, even after her passing.

Never miss an opportunity to visit her beautiful and much loved garden. Opening the gates again to raise money in support of the McClelland Gallery, enjoy Twilight Jazz at Cruden Farm on Saturday 28th February 2015, from 4pm to 8pm.

Performers include Mrs Sippy Jazz Band featuring Pippa Wilson, Dukes of Debonaire, the Beckitt Brothers and the Frankston High School Senior Stage Band directed by Leon de Bruin.

Pre-purchased tickets are $20, including a $3 non-refundable booking fee. These tickets must be purchased before 3pm on Friday 27th February and include a free coffee at the McClelland Gallery, valid 28th Feb to 31st March. The Gallery is well worth a visit, with exhibits placed around the garden as well as inside. A trip there is a real adventure, especially for kids of all ages, discovering treasures hidden within in the bush. The McClelland Gallery is a worthwhile day trip for the entire family and entry is free.

Tickets can be purchased online using PayPal via the McClelland Gallery web site and then will be sent to you via Australia Post.

Tickets at the gate are $25 and children under 12 are free.

Cruden Farm is located on Frankston-Cranbourne Road, Langwarrin, but enter Cranhaven Road into your GPS as this is where you'll find the entry gate. Melway Reference 103 G6.

Bring your chairs, picnic rug and a basket full of goodies and bunk in for a pleasant evening on the lawn beneath the sweeping arms of Dame Elisabeth's well-established trees. While you're there, stroll through the secret garden, down to the lake and across the bridge to the island.

Wine, soft drink, tea, coffee, gourmet sausages and gift stall items available for purchase on the night.

For bookings call 9789 1671 or visit the McClelland Gallery web site.
