The Mapleton Hall is held in Trust – The Mapleton Hall & Sportsground Trust – and has served the community of Mapleton and surrounds for a century, having been built in 1916. The Hall and Sportsground is one of the area’s historic jewels, and has a long heritage of comings and goings – dances, sports events, classes, meetings, group activities and special events – making it a large part of community life in the small mountain top village of Mapleton.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Mapleton on Sunday, 15th of December with Blair Dunlop (ENG) and Hat Fitz and Cara (AUS).
Festival of Small Halls Mapleton will be supported by Lee and Shaye Hardisty. Lee is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist who has been touring the world with music for the past 15 years. His music is honest and lovingly heartfelt, focussed around his great love of his wife, his daughters, his garden and his community. He will be performing with wife Shaye, on banjo and vocals. Lee’s main instruments include saxophone, guitar, ukelele, flute, tin whistle, recorders, kalimba, and keys. Lee laughling says he and Shaye often sit on their porch and scare their neighbours with a banjo and saxophone. Lee is often seen playing at the Woodford Folk Festival and along the Sunny Coast. Shaye makes clothes and dreams of making more.
