Whyalla Left Hand Club stands on the traditional lands of the Barngarla People.
The Whyalla Left Hand Club started in 1942 because of a concern by a number of gentlemen who used to gather at a bar in the Hotel Whyalla. This bar became known as “The Left Hand Bar,” a name by which it is still known today. “Fines” were collected to raise funds for community members facing financial dilemmas.
Being a part of the club is for everyone, and the aims and objectives are still the same as they were in 1942. The fines – such as forgetting to use your left hand to hold your drink or not producing the club emblem when challenged by another – result in a coin to be placed in the fine box. The club membership admits you to the Clubrooms, allowing you to take advantage of the Snooker and 8 Ball tables.
In recent years Lefties has become known as one of Whyalla’s premier music venues, hosting many Interstate and local artists from a wide variety of genres. They’ve hosted Adelaide Fringe shows and been involved with the SA Government Regional Umbrella Festival.
Festival of Small Halls rolls into Whyalla on Sunday, 28 August 2022 with Mal Webb and Kylie Morrigan and Chris Tamwoy.
Opening the show will be local act Brie Ryan!
Brie Ryan is a 20-year-old Indie Folk singer/songwriter from Whyalla, South Australia. Brie released her debut EP ‘Home’ in 2020 that was recorded in Byron Bay, NSW with Aria Award winning producer Jordan Power. Musically, Brie’s inspiration for her sound and writing has come from the likes of Ben Howard, Bon Iver and Garrett Kato. She writes a lot of her music about the ocean. Brie has been singing and playing guitar since 15-years-old and instantly saw a future in performing and producing art.
