Music hall score

THE live music scene will receive a huge boost with the conversion of Marrickville Town Hall into a music and performing arts centre.

Inner West Council will now invite live music venue operators to join with ethic community organisations to put forward a business plan that will see the Town Hall host concerts, performances and cultural events.
Mayor Darcy Byrne says it’s an opportunity to make Marrickville Town Hall one of Sydney’s great cultural assets.
“With the magnificent new Marrickville Library next door, converting this heritage Town Hall into a modern music venue can be the next step in making Marrickville Road a cultural precinct for the people of Sydney,” he said.
“The Inner West is the birthplace of multicultural Australia, by making Marrickville Town Hall a unique multicultural hub, we can make sure this is a home for migrant communities for many decades to come.”
Mayor Byrne also drew on other multiple-purpose cultural precincts across Sydney as an example of what could be realised in the Inner West.
“This beautiful town hall can become for the Inner West what the Concourse is for Chatswood, a contemporary arts centre that attracts people from across Sydney and Australia,” he said.
