ABOUT THE HALL Balmoral Mechanics Hall is of social significance to the community of Balmoral as a main setting for public and social events in the town since the late nineteenth century. Much loved for its preserved atmosphere of an old-time hall, it has played a continuing role as a function centre and meeting place for clubs and societies, as an entertainment venue and for its consolidation with the local bowling club. It is historically significant for its association with important local figures who struggled to get the building constructed. It has served continuously as the town’s public hall, variously as a meeting place for clubs and societies, a library and recreation centre and a cinema.
