Opera Queensland has been commissioned to work with Tumbulgum Hall
Tumbulgum Hall sits on the banks of the Tweed River on NSW’s far north coast, which was the first settlement on the Tweed.
Being 102 years old an amazing history and many stories are contained within its walls. Through community research and photographic evidence plus the assistance of Tweed Shire Council many of the hall’s original aspects have been restored to secure its social and economic future and preserving its past. The hall has been identified as a site of historical significance on Tumbulgum’s Heritage Trail with a permanent interpretive sign detailing its rich history and culture and features prominently during the Heart Foundation monthly full moon walks.
Now the beautifully maintained hall is well recognised and appreciated by its community. Tumbulgum Community Association committee oversee the operations of the hall, which is actively used by regular hirers including monthly dances, balls, weddings, celebrations, community activities and meetings.
A team of artists working with our community will support and promote the community coming together. We’re going to party like its 1866!
