Reimagining our halls
THE Festival of Small Halls, run by the team behind the Woodford Folk Festival, will come back to Eudlo on one of the largest tours the country has seen.
Festival manager Eleanor Rigden said much of the tour was about bringing soul back to the beautiful old buildings.
“We wanted to enable communities to present their own music in their own spaces,” she said. “It was a place where people were married, had Saturday night dances, where Santa came to visit and kids played together. It was the centre of their social life, so we produced a product the community is proud of.”
Alongside touring acts Old Man Luedecke from Canada and Australia’s Lucy Wise will be local artist Jackson Villani.
Eudlo is the final stop on the Summer 2018 tour next Sunday.
