Alongside the Centenary of Armistice Remembrance Concert, we will also be hosting a Commemoration Dinner in Launceston’s Albert Hall in November. This incredible evening, which also will celebrate the 243rd Birthday of the United States Marines, will feature a three course meal and include entertainment from the Tassie Tenor, the Launceston City Band and the Launceston Male Choir. With our guest of honour the Governor of Tasmania, Her Excellency Professor The Honourable Kate Warner AC, this Commemoration Dinner will be one that you don’t want to miss out on.

The Albert Hall was built by J.T Farmils at a cost of 14,000 pounds in 1891 to house the Tasmanian Industrial Exhibition of 1891-92. The exhibition ran for four months and attracted over 260,000 people. The exhibition itself was designed to ease the social misery caused by the depression of the 1880’s. The Albert Hall is one of Launceston’s most significant heritage buildings due to its high degree of heritage value that is attributed to the Classical Victorian style of monumental public architecture. The Hall covers an area of 14,000 square feet and was recognised at the time as the worlds 11th largest building.
