  • Welcome to the inaugural Site and Sound program. It is my pleasure to introduce a local showcase of arts and cultural events in the Leichhardt Town Hall from Sunday 1 April to Saturday 12 May.Traditionally the hub of community life, Council is proud that our beautiful heritage Town Halls are places where residents can meet and connect.

    As a community we are keen to strengthen community ties, honour our heritage, and create opportunities for walkable neighbourhoods that will help us all to stay fit and lower our carbon footprint. We can do that by using our local venues and developing a vibrant local art, culture, and community. This aim is a key part of Leichhardt Councils first ever Community and Cultural Plan, adopted in August 2011. The Plan has proposed many major initiatives to nurture our social, cultural and environmental wellbeing.

    In its first year Site and Sound showcases a diverse range of events from groups based in our local area. We are proud to present works from the Metropolitan Chamber Orchestra, Satsang - a Musical Celebration of Peace, Something Really Epic a Leichhardt Youth Council event, and YouMove at the Hall from the areas newest company YouMove.

    I encourage you to come along, be entertained and inspired, and help bring our beautiful Town Hall to life. And if you are an artist, performer, or producer, please contact us about getting involved in Site and Sound 2013!

    Whether you are a local or a visitor, come and experience what our beautiful Town Hall has to offer you.

  • Site and Sound: Showcasing the Leichhardt Town HallLeichhardt Town Hall is a centre for community life and has been in use for over 120 years.Established in 1888 local papers describe the excitement of the opening day with flags and potted plants decorating shops, balconies and houses along the route from Sydney to Leichhardt. Crowds of well dressed folk made their way to the Town Hall for the opening and over 5,000 residents attended.

    A guard of honour of 50 cadets was formed on the entrance steps of the portico and when Lord Carrington and Sir Henry Parkes (premier) arrived the cadets presented arms, a band began to play, and 8000 school students all began to sing the national anthem.

    The premier noted that 18 years previously Leichhardt had only consisted of a few bush huts and dense scrub and how much it had developed since its incorporation in 1871.

    Today the Town Hall is used for a diverse range of local and civic events. Along with Annandale and Balmain Town Halls it is a great resource for our communities. Our Out on the Town brochure available online at www.leichhardt.nsw.gov.au promotes the myriad of activities taking place in our town halls throughout the year.
