Providing an idyllic lifestyle, Glenlyon is close to Daylesford and within close proximity to the regional centres of Ballarat and Bendigo. The 120-year-old Glenlyon Hall has long been a proud focal point for the local community. With its grand facade and position on the avenue in the centre of town, Glenlyon Hall is obviously well loved and cared for in the community. The committee is has a strong sense of ownership and there is a willingness look after and restore the building. The Hall is home to (amongst other organisations and activities) an art and craft group, Playgroup, the CFA, Art and Sculpture Shows, Fine Food and Wine Fayre and Glenlyon Forest Group.
Festival of Small Halls Glenlyon will be supported by The Cartwheels. In September 2019 the Cartwheels travelled to Nashville to record their fifth studio album. With a wish list of their favourite Nashville musicians and ten new songs from Wendy, the band recorded an album that harks back to the Americana country sound the fifties and sixties. With Wendy on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, Dave on double bass and Charley on drums, the Cartwheels were joined by members of the Nashville supergroup The Time Jumpers as well as the cream of Music City’s players. The Cartwheels are planning to return to Nashville in September to do some shows.
