City of Sydney Library Lunchtime Conversations is a fortnightly series of free online talks with authors, artists and experts.
Join Margaret Betteridge, City of Sydney curator and author of Sydney Town Hall: The Building and its Collection, for a special virtual tour.
Sydney Town Hall stands proudly in the heart of our city of Sydney. For over 150 years it has been the seat of local government and a venue for wide-ranging events – from concerts and speech nights to balls and political rallies. It has welcomed heads of state and government, been the stage for Lady Gaga and the setting for Australia’s Federation banquet.
In this 1-hour talk, Margaret will showcase the architecture, interiors, history and unique stories of this much loved landmark building. There will also be opportunities to share your own memories of Sydney Town Hall and what the building means to you.
Margaret manages the City of Sydney Civic Collection and is passionate about Sydney Town Hall. She loves its splendid architecture, its history and stories about some of the people and events that this iconic building has hosted.
