ABOUT ROMSEY MECHANICS’ INSTITUTE
Romsey Mechanics’ Institute was founded in October 1865. The foundation stone was laid in 1875 and a wooden building was built costing two hundred pounds consisting of a hall seating 250, a large stage and two rooms, one of which was a Library for the education and enjoyment of the local community. A new hall, in front of the above building, was built in 1884, costing over a thousand pounds. Sir William Clarke laid the foundation stone on 29th May 1884. The Institute conducted a variety of events as diverse as theatre and weekly balls to roller-skating and boxing. A fire on 6th July 1904 damaged the wooden structure and the Institute was re-built and enlarged to its present state. Once again the Institute became the social focal point of the greater Romsey area with dances, balls, theatre and the new craze “the picture show man”. Even today you can see running sheets of the talkies pencilled on the walls in the projector room. The Institute, today, caters for a great variety of groups and functions such as – Senior Citizens Club, R.S.L, C.W.A, Dance Academy, Line Dancing, wedding receptions, funerals, concerts, presentations and birthday parties.

They have played to packed houses/halls for the past 10 years! These are their ‘retirement’ years not ‘working years that I’m referring to. Both spent many years working over in London & thus have brought their considerable expertise here to Moonambel. This show promises not to disappoint once again! The proceeds of their raffle will go towards our hall. Visitors come from near & far to see these wonderful performances. They are all very much ‘tongue in cheek’- very clever indeed

ABOUT THE HALL

The history of the Moonambel Hall- formerly Mechanics Institute Reserve is documented in the book ‘If these Walls could talk’ by Pam Barawagnarth – unable to spell her surname- sorry, but she is well known.
The Pyrenees Shire has been very good to the hall committee & we have just had a brand new kitchen built. The first hall was washed away in the floods of Nov./Dec. 1933 so this hall was opened in 1937.
The hall has played host to all the usual community activities, such as school concerts; church luncheons/teas; cabarets; wedding breakfasts ; trivia nights; exhibitions; life’ drawing classes; markets etc. for more inforamtion about the hall contact Jill Hunter secretary/treasurer 54672211 /douglasdiva@activ8.net.au

Collaborating artists from the Macedon area include Christian Bagin, Michael Langley, Sarah Lockwood, Hannah Monagle, Wes Snelling and Henry Vyhnal. The Dad Show is inspired by Bron’s award winning theatre show Sweet Child of Mine which she created with her parents in 2011 and has since toured to Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Chicago.

The first incarnation of this project has been supported by Punctum Inc through the Sidney Myer Fund and will take place in St Mary’s Hall in the Kyneton township in November 2014.
