Glenorchy Memorial Hall, VIC, Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk Country
Glenorchy Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagulk People.
The town was established around The Four Posts Inn, which opened in 1847, and within two years boasted a store, smithy and post office. The town was surveyed in 1850 by Robert Buchanan who named it after Glenorchy in Scotland. In its heyday, Glenorchy boasted 33 pubs, inns and unofficial grog joints. Quite the pub crawl!
This community hall is in a beautiful part of Western Victoria in close proximity to the Grampians and Wimmera River. A river that may not look mighty but has flooded most recently in October 2022 providing some drama filled days for townsfolk and landowners. A strong sense of community and hard work have the town scrubbed up and ready to showcase a festival in our very own small hall.
Festival of Small Halls returns to Glenorchy on Saturday, 1 April 2023 with Scott Cook and Folk Bitch Trio.
Opening the show will be local act Whimsical Tricycle!
Whimsical Tricycle are life partners Kieran Butler (guitar, vocals) and Michelle Wilson (violin, vocals) who toured extensively to critical acclaim in the 2000’s. After a long hiatus they have returned to the folk festival circuit over the past couple of years, delighting audiences with their unique mix of humour, original songs and story telling.
Meals will be available at the Hall until intermission, catered by Valhalla BBQ.
This is a BYO event.
