Bringing you everything from film, history and orchestras to contortion, the Festival of Community Halls is drawing crowds throughout the Sunshine Coast to celebrate week five of 50th Anniversary fun.
Festival organiser Mary Ann Law from Gheerulla Hall is encouraging everyone to, “take a scenic country drive through the hinterland this weekend and you will discover fantastic country hospitality. Four fantastic events are happening across the coast this weekend, in week five of eight magical weekends for the Festival of Community Halls”.
