Texas Memorial Hall, QLD, Biggambul Country
Texas Memorial Hall stands on the traditional lands of the Biggambul People.
The Texas Memorial Hall stands in an area where various Aboriginal groups share interests in the land, including the Bigambul and Gambuwal/Kambuwal people. The Texas Memorial Hall was built in 1958 and soon after opening, the stage collapsed during a meeting of local tobacco growers. Let’s hope things have improved since then, or it will be the worst for our artists!
The origin of the town’s name is generally regarded as a reference to a territorial dispute. The land in the area was first settled by the McDougall brothers, who found squatters there on returning from the goldfields. Once their legal right to the land was recognised, they named their property in honour of the rather more famous dispute between the United States and Mexico over territory in Texas, USA.
Festival of Small Halls returns to Texas on Thursday, 20 October 2022 with Karl S. Williams and Catherine MacLellan.
Opening the show will be local act Annabel, Greg and Adam!
