Town Hall Teasers
The four month 'teasers program' (from March to May) was a series of music, dance and other cultural performances, backstage tours and talks on the Town Hall’s social history.
The teasers were a huge success with hundreds of people turning out and reacquainting themselves with the building.
We would like to thank the performers for their wonderful music and dance and for giving up their time (for free) to make the program possible.
We’d also like to thank the audiences for coming along and enjoying the entertainment

Council offically opened the refurbished Wollongong Town Hall on Tuesday, 22 February 2011 at 1pm.
The $5.4 million refurbishment of the Town Hall features a new foyer, snack bar, balcony, fire safety upgrades, improvements to access, including the installation of a lift and upgrades to amenities and backstage areas.
The 824 seat Auditorium and the Multipurpose room (former Community Hall) will allow for medium to large scale events such as performances, exhibitions, public meetings and weddings, with two other venues within the facility providing ideal spaces for meetings and other smaller community events.
Merrigong will manage the Town Hall on behalf of Wollongong Council. As well as taking bookings from groups who wish to hire the facility, Merrigong will develop and manage an annual program of high quality cultural events for everyone in the community to enjoy.
The multi-million dollar refurbishment was supported by a $2 million grant from the NSW State Government.
