Angry Anderson to headline men's only event at Cowra Rugby Club

Following the successful Dr Rosie King women's event, Cowra Council has partnered with the Cowra Rugby Club to host a men only event featuring Angry Anderson OAM, as part of the Federal Government Drought Communities Programme.

Angry Anderson is the well-known front man of Rose Tattoo, performers of "We Can't Be Beaten" and "Bad Boy for Love".

He is also widely recognised as an advocate for men's health, mental health, social issues and charitable organisations.

Cowra Mayor, Councillor Bill West welcomes Angry to Cowra and recognises the importance of having a community focused event for men in Cowra to get together and unwind.

"It's fantastic to have a person such as Angry Anderson take an interest in our community to engage the male population, and join us to get the Cowra male community together to share a meal and a conversation," Cr West said.

"Cowra Council supports the Cowra Rugby Club and recognises the difficulties faced by our region and we aim to give our male community members a night off from those challenges."

Cowra Rugby Club President Ian Robertson is also pleased to have such a popular entertainer at their venue.

"We want to bring the community together to enjoy a great night with a great Australian," he said.

"The night is for all men, not just Rugby Club members, we encourage all men to attend, and we want fathers to bring their sons for a free sausage sizzle and game of touch footy whilst we enjoy the evening with Angry Anderson."

'Angry at the Rugby Club' will be held on Thursday, December 19 at 6.30pm.

Tickets are $10 each which will include dinner.

There will also be a bar available and prizes up for grabs.

All proceeds from the night will be donated to a charitable organisation following the event.

Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/angry-at-the-rugby-clubtickets-82558547839, or at Elders Cowra and Kilby's Heating and Cooling until Monday, December 16.
