Cecil Plains Memorial Hall, QLD
The Cecil Plains Memorial Hall has a very colourful history and has played a major role in entertaining the Cecil Plains community, especially in its early years when television and travel weren’t as common place. People would gather for socials and these provided a means for all in the area to catch up. The Lucky Grills “Variety” shows visited the hall on their tours around Australia and several other touring musical/comedy vaudeville type shows also used the hall, especially during the 1970’s. The hall once hosted a Ballet that was an ambitious endeavour by one local school teacher. The Cecil Plains hall has seen many changes in not just itself but the community that use it, with Beef and Burgundy theatre restaurant events, weddings, birthdays and even during one flood, a funeral viewing, all being held within its walls.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Cecil Plains on Sunday, 1 October 2023 with Monique Clare and Shane Pendergast.
