Kunghur Hall Open And Ready For Hire

Tweed Shire Council

Kunghur Hall is now open for community hire. The multi-purpose space, fit with stage, polished flooring and activity room is suitable for private events, regular classes and a range of other activities.

To celebrate the opening of the hall for community hire, Council hosted a community event on Sunday 25 February complete with a sausage sizzle, live music by Mark Ferguson and Phillip Glass, and the captivating storytelling from local bush poet, Paddy O’Brien.

The hall’s stage and sizeable outdoor areas were the perfect setting for the afternoon which also featured the Tweed Regional Museum’s mobile exhibition Museum on Wheels (MoW) and local members of the Kunghur Rural Fire Service.

Council’s Team Leader – Community Wellbeing Lisa Francisco said the hall would be widely used for a range of purposes.

“It’s taken some time to get the hall ready for the community – it’s fantastic to be able to offer it to residents, who can now book the space for regular or one-off events,” Ms Francisco said.

“The hall has such a rich history and the space has so much character, it can be used for everything from art exhibitions to events to classes, you name it.

“If you’re thinking of booking a space, please do check it out.”

Council will host a free family friendly movie afternoon at Kunghur Hall on Saturday 13 April which will feature a screening of the popular film, Hunt for the Wilderpeople. The screening will offer guests free popcorn and seating via complimentary beanbags. The event will start at 2 pm.

Situated in the heart of Kunghur, the hall was built in 1915 and was used for a range of activities including community dances, celebrations and more recently, a pre-school.

The hall joins other venues available for hire across the Tweed, including Kingscliff Hall, Banora Point Community Centre and Tweed Heads South Community Centre which are all bookable through Council.

Council offers these venues for hire to help facilitate the building of strong community bonds and to help people be more active and healthy.
