Talking about … Town Halls and Schools of Arts

Talking about … Town Halls and Schools of Arts
Starts: 26 Apr 2023 at 10:00 AM
Ends: 26 Apr 2023 at 12:00 PM

Speaker: Nancy Edwards

Was your soldier ancestor farewelled or welcomed home at a Town Hall meeting? Were your ancestors active in town affairs, attending political meetings or monthly meetings at a Town Hall?

Schools of Arts provided public lectures and reading material for those of our ancestors who sought self-improvement. Perhaps your family helped raise funds for or construct a community hall.

Did you attend balls, old-time dances or eisteddfods yourself?

Come along and share your stories. Nancy Edwards will be ""Master of Ceremonies"".

Please note. A ""Talking About"" session is a discussion group where everyone is expected to contribute through sharing their knowledge and experience, through asking questions and/or giving opinions and answers. It is not a presentation. It is open to all levels of experience, no question is too silly to ask.

Got a question? A suggestion? Email Education team education@qfhs.org.au.

Note: This event is held in QLD time, AEST: no daylight saving. (GMT+10) 

Please register your planned attendance on Eventbrite, when the link becomes available, whether you are planning to attend in person or online.
