The Canberra Musician’s Club is launching a campaign via Facebook to save McGregor hall.
The hall, notionally home to the Canberra Pensioner’s Club has been an on and off redoubt of local entertainment endeavour (and also rightly famous for the devastatingly handsome bar staff) for many long years but the developers signage has gone up out the front and it’s meant to be flat by September.
While it might be too late to save the current structure what this town desperately needs to be retained is a venue for community hire close to public transport and central to the population, but not too close to actual residents likely to be disturbed by bagpipe practice, swing dancers, and scruffy musicians bringing in hordes of beautiful young women.
So if that sounds like a good idea to you time to make with the clickey clickey on the Facebook group.
