Festival of Small Halls – Bloomfield Hall, Orange

By No Comments

Festival of Small Halls have announced that feel-good ukulele strummer and drummer Bobby Alu and two-piece indie pop-rock band This Way North will feature on their upcoming Autumn Tour 2021: New South Wales, kicking off on 7 April and concluding on 2 May 2021.

With a dedication to getting off the beaten track, the not-for-profit music tour celebrates the time-old tradition of gathering in the local small hall for a special night of live music, storytelling and community connection.

Presented by veteran festival producers Woodfordia Inc, twenty halls of all shapes and sizes will throw open their doors, from the rolling green hills of the Mid North hinterlands, to the dry bush of the Central West, from goldrush country to the fertile Southern Tablelands; from the golden sands of the south east coast, to the majesty of the Snowys.

Festival of Small Halls rolls into Orange on Sunday 25 April.
