Community Halls

The Bagshot Public Hall is a green weatherboard hall.

There are a number of different halls and centres available around Greater Bendigo for public and community group hire. They are used for a range of activities, including music practice, meetings, private parties, and Scouts and Lions clubs. The halls themselves come in a range of shapes and sizes, from heritage to modern, multipurpose facilities.

Each hall is managed by volunteer Committees of Management. These committees run the day-to-day activities of the halls, and make the spaces available for public use on the City's behalf.

For more information and contact details for each committee of management, please see the list of halls below.
