Melbourne 21st Fancy Dress

The fluro dance floor near the Forum Stage.

Last Saturday was the combined 21st Birthday Fancy Dress Party at the Melbourne Revival Centre. The theme this year was the 80’s. Think legwarmers, huge shoulder pads, Rubik’s cube, mullets, Ray Bans… think, ‘Don’t worry be happy’, ‘Girls just want to have fun’, ‘Eye of the Tiger’, I could go on… It’s a fact that none of this years’ 21sters was born in the 80’s, but that didn’t stop them from dressing up in their parents’ relics from the back of the wardrobe or, raiding an unfortunate oppourtunity shop!

On the mini replica of the Forum Theatre stage, we heard ‘Beat It’ from a credible Michael Jackson (before the face work) who also treated us to his trademark moonwalk. There was a fantastic performance from ‘The Artist Formally Known As Prince’ or an impersonator? The musical ‘Mr Jonah’ made a brief reappearance and we all sang along to the John Farnham anthem, ‘You’re the Voice’. Supper was served in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, which managed to stay upright for the duration of the evening! Thanks to all who put in a huge effort to make the night possible. A happy 21st to all those who have now reached their majority.

The Melbourne assembly in Australia began just after World War 2. It is the headquarters for the Revival Centres Church globally. It is composed of three centres: Central (in Box Hill), Southern (in Mt Eliza) and Western (in Williamstown).


  1. What a fantastic night, I had a ball. No better way to turn 21 than celebrating it with the assembly! Thank You to all who helped make it become a reality.
