It was a long community battle to save the historic Lawson Mechanics Institute Hall, after nearly being demolished to make way for road widening.
Blue Mountains Council has formed a Committee to oversee the management of the Hall and our objective is to keep you well informed and get this fabulous Hall back to being the centre of the community as it has been for 108 years.
This fabulous Hall is in excellent condition with a great stage, auditorium and acoustics. There is a shortage of good performance spaces in the Blue Mountains so this is a major asset.
Our Open day Party is coming soon. Keep checking back – we will be finalising the schedule shortly.
The hall can now be booked by contacting Karen Ives at BMCC ph. 47 80 5735.
Blue Mountains City Council has opened it on a 36 month trial basis but for the first time ever there is a patronage limit of 35 people due to lack of on site parking. As there are hundreds of parking spaces 5 minutes walk away in the Lawson Town Centre so we hope to convince Council to remove this limit. See our Ongoing Issues page for more information. By regularly using the hall the community will be sending the message that we need permanent and full availability.
