A community space for theatre, art, and markets since 1931.

Twyford Hall has been the heart of Merimbula for over 80 years, long serving as a space for community events, celebrations, markets, the arts and so much more.

In the beginning, a trust was established for the hall when a title of land was generously donated by Merimbula resident J.W.Twyford in 1931, who had been raised in the seaside village from his childhood years.

With a population of only around 150 people, the Merimbula community built the hall in 10 months after the tireless efforts of the committee to raise enough money for its construction. It was built during the depression, through Merimbula residents’ tenacity to achieve their vision.
