Hervey Bay, 7 December 2023

Dundowran Recreational Hall, QLD, Butchulla Country

Dundowran Recreational Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Butchulla People.

In May 1933 the CSR Sugar Mill barracks at Childers was bought for £100. The barracks were dismantled and moved by rail and
re-erected as the Dundowran Recreational Hall. It was opened officially on 15 July 1933.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Hervey Bay on Thursday, 7 December 2023 with Jackie Marshall and Assynt.

Opening the show will be local act Harding’s House!

Writing, producing and performing original music about love, mental health, loss, addiction and other facts of life. Their style could best be described as indie folk/blues, but it is best to expect the unexpected with these guys, as no two releases sound the same! Siblings, Robbie Harding and Nicole Cornish (nee Harding) created the band during their formative teenage years. Coming from a musical family, they have always enjoyed performing together. In 2017, they met Shane Cornish who joined them as a drummer by trade, and then, Nicole’s husband. The unique style of Shane’s beats is a part of what helps Harding’s House stand out from the crowd. Their soulful originals have landed them several notable gigs where they have showcased their sound alongside impressive local and international names like Bootleg Rascal, Blair Dunlop and more. Wherever their musical journey takes them, they will always have an unbreakable love for their art, and each other, and in the beauty of this, they find inspiration. 

There will be sweet and savoury snack boxes available on the night, as well as soft drinks, juice, and water.
