Newdegate Town hall, WA, Nyaki Nyaki Country

 Newdegate Town Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Nyaki Nyaki People. 

Newdegate Town Hall started as a dancer’s hall back in 1925. A committee was formed to raise funds for a small dance hall, which was constructed in time for the railway line opening in March 1926. in 1967 a new building was built after a fire burnt down the original.

Situated in the small country town of Newdegate, where the locals wave as you drive past, this small town hall has had many a shindig over the years from wonderful balls, to moving pictures, to the first school classroom in September 1926. It is currently being used for our little ones gymnastics, new years eve celebrations and any other local events.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Newdegate on Wednesday, 14 August 2024 with Jed Parsons (NZ) and Alana Wilkinson (AUS).

Opening the show will be local act Naomi Barrett-Lennard!

A multi-instrumentalist, she has played at local events such as the Newdegate Machinery Field Days and the Newdegate New Years Eve celebrations with her kids, as well as the Pingrup Centenary and private events.
