Perth Australia and the Town Hall and a FREE Mandolin Orchestra Show

Designed by Jewel and Manning in the Victoria  Free Gothic  style, the hall was built by convicts and free men between 1867 and 1870. Its decorations contain a number of convict motifs, including windows in the shape of the broad arrow , and decorations in the shape of a hangman’s rope. In my early years at DSC once a month we would take residents to a Disco held here for Intellectually Disabled People and residents from all over the Perth area would attend it is was  always a FUN activity.Currently every Tuesday Lunch concerts are held utilizing different varieties of music,this time I attended a Mandolin Concert and featured a singer doing a song from early English periods.The show lasted for an hour and is totally FREE as all weekly concerts are and a free raffle is also offered.I attended with friends of mine from yesteryear and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.(alright I confess to doing a McDonalds after the show!) The Town Hall is magnificent and open to the public for a “look see” Presently I am in my last few days in Perth and having a wonderful time with family and the grankids are certainly wearing me out ! Hervey Bay is now just a memory and I am moving on with great enthusiasm.

If ever in WA go and visit this wonder building from the past,you will not be disappointed

Apart from Lunch the day was FREE thanks to the wonderful use of my BUS pass that I have used extensively
