Mullumbimby Drill Hall Centenary

Sunday 28th August from 11am

Flyer A4

What a day.  Thank you Mullumbimby community for helping The Drill Hall celebrate its centenary on Sunday 28th August.  The Belle of the hall (our own 100 year old local, Elva Julien) was there to cut the ribbon for the next 100 years and more……….

There was something to entice and entertain everyone at this family friendly celebration and entry was free.  It was great to see that so many people came dressed in period clothing fitting for the occasion.

You could sit in on a story and let your mind wander; or grab a hoola hoop or a skipping rope and be part of the action.  Others reminisced playing knuckles/jacks?  And others showed their children what we used to get up to when we were ankle-biters, letting them see that we haven’t lost your marbles yet, and could still give them a blast from your past!  There was a chalkboard for memories of the Drill Hall (great stories) and live music; food stalls for all tastes and community gardens interaction.  AND what would a community one-hundred-year celebration be without a Lions Barbecue by the Brunswick Mullumbimby Lions?

Art, craft, history, music, food, community, dance, theatre, storytelling for kids, interactive theatre and Mullumbimby’s Biggest Little Choir.  Even a Soap Box for the verbally erect among us (everyone was a bit shy with this one)  Current tutors at the Drill showed their wares and you could even join in a Pilates class.  And visitors had the opportunity to visit the Potters and their studio, out the back, and find out just how they made all that stuff.
