A&I Hall Station Street, Bangalow
With architecturally designed features rarely seen in the modern era, the hall is a five-minute walk from Byron Street. Pressed tin ceilings and walls, with muted colours on the leadlight windows, this Hall evokes the senses and distant memories of a bygone era. Sitting proudly at the top of the Bangalow Showgrounds, yet within the bustling Bangalow village, the Bangalow A&I Hall has been the perfect venue for 18 years.
Parking is available in the adjacent Showground. Two parking spaces with disability access available at the front of the building and ramps to all areas.
