The Red Cliffs Civic Centre was built in 1961 by the local Shire, to be a Hall for all of the community to utilize. It is in a central location opposite Barclay Square in Red Cliffs. While built from brick and mortar, the foundations are surely fortified with treasured local memories, for over many years it has held the local Debutant Balls, school concerts and local productions. It was the base for the ‘Red Cliffs Players’ productions for many years. A local dance school operated out of the Centre for well over 18 years, teaching thousands of children dance as well as putting on a yearly concert. This is a wonderful building with a lot of heart that has many more years of fulfilling Community needs left in its walls.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Red Cliffs on Wednesday, 18 March 2020 with critically-acclaimed Scottish ensemble The Paul McKenna Band and emerging Australian singer-songwriter Alana Wilkinson.
Festival of Small Halls Red Cliffs will be supported by Jamison Nokes. Jamison is 15 years old and currently attending Red Cliffs Secondary College as a year 10 student. Her interest in music began when she was in grade 5 and started singing lessons. She first sang to a crowd at the Mildura Eisteddfod in 2015, where she has continued to perform for the last five years. Here she received several firsts, seconds and honorable mentions from acclaimed judges over this time.
She loves to listen to country and pop music and enjoys singing covers of artists such as Luke Combs, One Dominion, Adele, Bruno Mars, Missy Higgins and Ed Sheeran. People who listen say she has a calming yet unique voice. Her most rewarding crowd is the residents at Regis Aged Care whom she visits once a month and has exposed her to some older music like the Beetles and Johnny Cash.
