As you all know, we have been unable to do most of our usual community events in the Eureka Hall over the past two years.

We have missed your smiling faces and the sense of connection that comes with sharing a meal, a drink or a song with everyone.

The good news is that we’ve had the opportunity to book the Festival of Small Halls gig again in 2022!

While we acknowledge the covid situation brings many challenges, we’ve decided to go ahead – so we need your support to make sure we cover costs.

Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.

It is produced by Woodfordia Inc, in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music.

Community is what makes this place special; the Eureka Hall is an integral part of that. The first event is March 6. For more information www.festivalofsmallhalls.com.

Rhonda Ansiewicz is a Eureka Hall member.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
