Burra Town Hall has outdone themselves this November with a series of events taking place in the Hall. Begining with the Spring Garden Expo and the wonderful stage display created by the ladies from the district. Titled ‘Poppies for Peace, Red for Rememberance’ the three day event encompassed workshops, as well as garden advice from the experts, stallholders and artisans.
