Festival of Small Halls

 

Festival of Small Halls 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. Produced in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music, it’s an opportunity for music-lovers from welcoming communities to invite artists from home and abroad.

The artist line-up consists of at least one Australian artist and one international touring artist, who play music of exceptional quality and heart. They are handpicked for the tour, not only because of their beautiful songs and tunes, but because they have the ability to connect with people through storytelling, a good joke (or a truly terrible one), wonderful warmth and a real interest in visiting places a little off the beaten track. Each night of the tour is hosted by volunteers from the local community, so it’s also a chance for a town to show off their warmest welcome and most enthusiastic audiences.

From our farmlands to the flood lands, the rain forests to the outback, Festival of Small Halls audiences can expect a beautiful night of original music, as well as a chance to catch up with their families and friends during a supper break. It’s an all ages event and all are welcome.

Share the news Woodfordians! We will be holding our next Bushtime event over the traditional Woodford Folk Festival period. (Dec 27 to Jan 1) Plus we will be opening up our Lake Gkula Campground for the September/ October school holidays.

For the second year in a row we also must announce that due to the impacts of the global pandemic, we have had to cancel Woodford Folk Festival this year. We think our new offerings with Bushtime and Lake Gkula Camping, while smaller in scale, will give you the chance to have your little taste of Woodfordia for the year.

This is the first time that Woodfordia, the 500-acre parkland that is home to Lake Gkula, the iconic naturally filtered swimming lagoon – will be open for public camping over the Spring school break.

Lake Gkula Camping bookings will open by the end of August for the September/October school holidays. Tickets for Bushtime in December will launch in mid-September, with pre-launch available to Woodfordia Citizens.

Woodfordia will be operating under Qld Government health directives regarding Covid-Safe Workplans, restrictions and vaccination status at the time of the event and campground delivery.

P.S. If you want to become a citizen you can learn more about it via the link in our bio. Its $36 dollars per year and all the funds go to support us and the land at Woodfordia.
