Council is involved with a variety of events throughout the Northern Midlands both directly and indirectly. Support is offered towards the cost of major festivals, events or promotions being held in the Northern Midlands, assistance maybe 'in kind' or a grant - or a combination of the two methods. Not-for-profit community organisations that are eligible to apply for funding are encouraged to apply in either Round 1 or Round 2. Find out more about our Grants & Event Funding here.

Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia. It is produced by Woodfordia Inc in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music. It’s an opportunity for music-lovers from welcoming communities to invite artists from Home and Abroad into their towns, and a way of exploring this vast country in the spirit of hospitality and great fun.
Festival of Small Halls is held annually in collaboration with Northern Midlands Council in early to mid January in Longford.
