The renovated St Saviour’s Hall was opened by the Australian Composer – Peter Sculthorpe which lends to it’s incredibly strong musical links in its current form. So how perfect that The Festival of Small Halls returns to this location.
The original stone portion of this hall was the pro-cathedral (parish church prior to the cathedral) and is the section of the hall you can see in this picture. In 1913 a stone extension was constructed and in 1923 a brick toilet block added. In 2008 the most recent modifications were made. The roof is tiled following the fires of 1925 and 1961.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Goulburn on Thursday, 23nd January 2020 with Siobhan Miller (SCO) and Jack Carty (AUS).
Festival of Small Halls Goulburn will be supported by Will Battiste. The Goulburn local Will Battiste will open the show with a guitar set featuring a wide variety of styles. With his favourite artists including John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Queen, Billy Joel, Metallica, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Motley Crue and Eagles – there is a diverse mix for the audience to enjoy.
Will’s love of music started at Tirranna Primary School when the opportunity arose to learn an instrument. “I gave guitar a go and enjoyed it. I learned the basics there and continued to play at Goulburn High when the Con continued their music program there and have played since”.
Will was recently announced as a Scholarship Holder for Hume Conservatorium for 2020 and has previously performed at their presentation night, at the Goulburn Club for the Blues Festival, Busking for Bails, and for school events including GHS Live, GHS Showcase and their prefect presentation assembly.
