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.

We have been longing to announce this news since what seems like forever - Woodford Folk Festival is back!

Thank you so much for all the letters of support over the past two years and particularly those who wrote about how much they have been missing Woodford from their lives. Believe us when we say we have missed you and the festival just as much. Your support and recollections of past festival experiences have been of such great encouragement to us.

Ahead of us now is the delight of curating a programme worthy of celebrating the festivals return, reigniting our community of organisers, volunteers, merchants and suppliers; and creating something beautiful together. And frankly, we just can’t wait to get into it. In fact, over 400 organisers gathered two weekends ago to start the planning process.
Change has been more of a constant these past couple of years and that will continue into the future. The return of the festival this year will see some venues retired, some taking a year off, others returning in full glory and some new kids on the block. We will be capping the numbers this year to make sure we get the comfort level just right and we hope to be keeping the ticket prices the same as what they were in 2019. A big ask but we will try.
We will be launching tickets in mid-June - we’ll be sure to email you all well ahead of launch time. Woodfordia members and citizens will have the opportunity of an early release a couple of days before the launch.

Make sure you are signed up to our mailing list stay up to date and learn about becoming a Woodfordian Citizen via the link in our bio.

For now hope you might give a big shout out to your family and friends and let them know where you’re planning to be at the end of the year – may it be Woodford Folk Festival.
