Festival of Small Halls

I'm a sucker for a nice country hall. 

Some days, I wonder what percentage of the reason I moved to the country was related to my romantic ideas about country halls. 

So, when I heard the Festival of Small Halls was coming to the lovely Forest Hill School of Arts, I knew we were in. 

Basically, the festival involves sending wonderful folk and acoustic artists currently travelling Australia for larger festivals off into the backwaters of the countryside, to play to small crowds in quaint little halls.

I took Lucinda and, although we couldn't stay late because two year olds run out of party steam quite early, we had a ball - dancing together out on the little verandah here where she could be a toddler without disturbing anyone inside.

We had the best seats in the house.

Thanks for the fun night, Festival of Small Halls! Come back again next year!


  1. What a wonderful idea and I think small churches and small halls CWA ones say "country town" to just about anyone....lovely photo and Lucinda would have loved the music but I hear you with a little toddler that there is only so late they can stay up....Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

  2. Such a great concept! And how lovely is your local hall. xx

  3. I love following your blog....that hall looks amazing....a little step back in time...the photos are also fabulous...

  4. Sometimes when you live in small places you get access to some big ideas. This one is a cracker and the hall is perfect. Always wanted to get married in one.

  5. Just divine! Beautiful images.
