Thank you, thank you Brooke Bignall, support act Rob Longstaff, and all the crew from the Festival of Small Halls tour.

Despite the event falling on a weekday, in the busy lead up to Christmas – over 120 adults and bundle of children enjoyed a community-centred night, with unique music and home made food.

The Rainbow Beach Hall played host to the festival, auspiced by the Rainbow Beach Commerce and Tourism.

“Because the ticket price was dropped by $5 from last year we needed 150 adults to break even, hopefully the bar made up for that. I told Mark to consider it a Christmas gift to the community from RBCT!”

“Both Harry and Jeshua,” who tour with the performers, “congratulated me on the turn out, being a week night.”

“I’d like to thank the community for coming out, and hope they enjoyed their evening. Thanks Boomerang Bag volunteers for their yummy dinner and desserts and all helpers!

“The Small Halls team are keen to come back (for their days off in Paradise!) so here’s to next year!”

If you missed out – they complete their performances in Australia at the Woodford Folk Festival.
