For rural Islanders, the quiet drama of daily life was played out within the small world of their community life- play, education, religion, work, romance and death. The Community Hall was a popular center for concerts, dances, box lunch socials, bees, debates and public meetings. The original Orwell hall burned down in the 1950’s and was replaced in the 1970’s. Traditional events are still held at the hall on evenings throughout the summer, singers, dancers and musicians gather for the ceilidhs.
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!
