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.

Season Camping Tickets for our forthcoming Woodford Folk Festival have sold out!

We still have Season tickets WITHOUT camping available and there are still plenty of day tickets, with camping options. New Year's Eve is selling fast though.

We are delighted in one sense but disappointed that some people wanting to be here for the whole festival will miss out on the onsite camping. We have checked with local campgrounds though, and are happy to advise that there are still some camping options quite close that are available through the festival period. Check their websites for more info:

- Woodford Showgrounds - powered and unpowered camping sites available Approx 5 mins from the festival site: https://woodfordshow.com/show/camping/

- Bushy Brown’s Adventure Ski Park, just 5 minutes from the festival: https://www.hipcamp.com/en-US/queensland/woodford-water-ski-park/lakeside-campsites

- Neurum Creek Bush Retreat and Campground, located around 20 minutes from the festival site. Bookings available online only: https://bookings.ncbr.com.au/book-online

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO STILL HAVE SOME VOLUNTEER POSITIONS AVAILABLE - volunteers get a season ticket with camping for their contribution. Positions available for our Build period (starting on the 10th Dec) and for the festival period. Volunteer information here: https://woodfordfolkfestival.com/get-involved/volunteer/

Check our bio for more information about tickets and volunteering.
