They're dotted across small Aussie communities and often are the heartbeat of most towns.
Small community halls are sometimes the forgotten glue that brings neighbourhoods together - years ago for barn dances, community meetings and wedding receptions.
Today they host playgroups and 21st birthday parties however in Lochinvar School of Arts' case, a music event featuring national and international artists.
The Lochinvar School of Arts Committee heard about the national Festival of Small Halls and wanted a piece of the action.
The event will bring two of the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists to the village later this month as part of the national event.
Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes artists performing at some of our country's largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
The artist line-up for Small Halls will always be at least one Australian artist and one international touring artist, who play music of exceptional quality and heart.
On January 29 Critically-acclaimed Australian songwriter Jack Carty will perform, along with one of Scotland's foremost singers, Siobhan Miller.
Carty has been making, touring and releasing original music since 2010. He has released five full-length studio albums, two EPs, received an APRA Professional Development Award and has toured across Australia, the UK, North America, Europe and New Zealand. He also co-writes with the likes of Josh Pyke, Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele, Taylor Swift) and Katie Noonan.
Miller is an exceptional talent, renowned for her unique vocal style paired with her evocative song-writing. She creates music with detail and rich melodies that combine the sounds of indie and alternative music with sounds from her roots in folk music.
Lochinvar School of Arts President Chris Futcher said the event is an exciting one for Lochinvar.
"We're hoping to sell 150 tickets to cover costs and any surplus money raised will go towards the hall's ongoing maintenance," he said. "We've done a fair bit of work to the hall. We have replaced a lot of the building's exterior, redone all the interior walls and put in a new kitchen. The big job that needs doing now is to re-polish the floors."
"This event is something we wanted to organise for the community - we wanted a strong local event that would let everyone know the 100-year-old hall is here and still in operation," he said.
Tickets can be purchased for $20 per person on the Lochinvar School of Arts Facebook page by following the link. Some tickets are also available at the True Cafe Lochinvar.
