The concept of Schools of Arts emerged in the 1850s to provide education to working class people, many of whom received only limited schooling. In 1926, when it was built by the local community, the Tomerong School of Arts (commonly called Tomerong Hall) has been home to a great number of events, from bush dances to weddings to world music.
The ongoing maintenance and improvement of the Hall and its facilities is managed by the Tomerong School of Arts Committee, as is the hiring of the Hall which may be booked for regular or special events by contacting the Hall Hiring Officer.
There are also a number of the regular events held for specific members of the community and these are shown on the Special Interest page.
As well as the booked events, the School of Arts manages the Tomerong Market which is held on each third Saturday of the month. Stalls are available for this through contact with the Markets Manager.
Current information on all upcoming events as well as detailed information on hire of the Hall for single, regular and Market bookings is detailed in the separate Tomerong Hall website, www.tomeronghall.com. This also provides a more detailed explanation on what is available with the hire and a broad description of the work already done and planned by the Committee.
