Friends of Victory Hall met on Wednesday to discuss, and put the finishing touches on this Sunday’s musical extravaganza.
It has been well documented that the ‘Save Victory Hall’ project was set up to combat rising damp problems in the Mechanics Institute Hall, and bring the complex back to its former glory.
All proceeds from Sunday’s event, from 2 pm to 4 pm including a country-styled afternoon tea and door prizes, will go to the fundraiser.
Artists performing include Ben Eaton, Donald Campbell, Monga Mukasa, Turaton Music Company, Emma Law and Kylie Hoskins.
The Guardian has been advised that Anthony Lucas, who was promoted in last week’s paper as one of the acts, will be unable to perform at the concert.
Tatura Civic Halls committee secretary Ian Grant said this was a ‘‘not-to-be-missed musical extravaganza’’.
Tickets to the concert are $20 and can be booked by phoning Ian Grant on 5824 1089 or 0427 140 241, Tom Perry on 5824 1365 or 0408 052 429, or K. D. Corner Store, 84 Hogan St, Tatura on 5824 1195.
Tickets will be available at the door (if not sold out).
