Tuncurry Memorial Hall was built as a community project, in memory of those who served and fell in World War I. The building was officially opened in September 1921. Since the opening, there have been various additions and improvements made.
During its life, the Tuncurry Memorial Hall has hosted concerts, meetings, dances and balls. It was used as a high school between about 1934 and 1938. For over fifty years, it operated as the local Movie Theatre.
Since July 2000, the Hall has again been available for hire as a community venue for dancing, concerts, meetings, celebrations, weddings, fund-raising events, arts and crafts and other educational and recreational activities.
Tuncurry Memorial Hall stands on lands traditionally owned by the Worimi people.
The show will open with 19 year old indie folk singer songwriter Heath Lancaster.
The recipient of the inaugural Keith Urban Scholarship, Heath released his debut EP ‘Amber Air’ in October last year. In early 2021, Heath recorded two singles with Platinum award-winning producer and singer-songwriter Garrett Kato in Byron Bay who has previously worked with artists such as Pete Murray, Tones and I, Julia Stone, Riley Pearce and Jack Botts. Heath’s calm and unassuming disposition, has been shaped by his experiences of growing up in the small working class town of Kempsey, NSW. Catherine Britt, former CMAA 2009 Female Artist of the Year describes Heath as “a true star, a talent that stands out, credibility and good looks! He has a very bright future ahead”.
