Dungog James Theatre


The James Theatre was once the social hub of Dungog, not only for its film screenings, but its balls and dances, catered for by the Wattle Club ladies.

The Theatre fell on hard times and fell into disrepair until it was purchased by the Dungog Shire Council in 1979 to provide a large function centre for the community. Cinema screenings were continued during the 1980s and 90s and until 2007 by a dedicated Ken Reeve, in spite of the increasing challenges posed by television and videos. Since then the community has worked to keep the Theatre building operational for films, live performances and functions.

The James Theatre is available for hire for film, music or dramatic events as well as weddings, parties, dances, educational uses and meetings. Events happening throughout the year.

Dungog Team Penning Arena Sorting


Team Penning is a western equestrian sport that has evolved from farm and station work of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport.

Today it is a fast-paced event that gives a team of three riders on horseback from 60 to 90 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a mob put them into a pen at the opposite end of the arena.

The sport features typically yearling beef cattle (mature cows or bulls are not allowed), with collars around their necks, three each wearing the same colour. Timing starts once the line judge has dropped his flag as the lead rider's horse crosses the line. The announcer identifies the cattle to be separated by calling out a randomly drawn collar colour. The riders must cut out the three nominated, take them to the opposite end of the arena, pen them and call for time.
