With high energy choreography and witty stage banter that will make you want to sing and dance all night. The action goes on at the The Royal Hotel known for its fantastic food. The BBQ Parma and Chicken Neptune are favourites. With onsite accommodation come to Snake Valley, meet the locals, and make a night of it in this beautiful hidden part of the Pyrenees Shire.
