Midland Town Hall
Located at the corner of Great Eastern Highway and Old Great Northern Highway, the building is a perfect function venue.
The main hall has a capacity to hold 291 people or 180 in a cabaret style setting and features a fully functional stage area with lighting grid, backdrop and an extendable stage if required, as well as a commercial kitchen on site and easy access off Great Eastern Highway.
The Town Hall is one of Midlands best known buildings. It is an outstanding example of the Federation Free Classical architectural style and is indicative of the type of buildings that can be found listed in the Citys Municipal Inventory.
Midland Town Hall was officially opened on January 23, 1907. Howe'ver, it wasnt until after World War I that the clock was placed on top of the dome. The clock serves as a memorial to the men who lost their lives during the War.
In the 1950s, the Town Hall continued to serve as the Council Chambers and Administration Centre for the Midland Junction Municipal Council (known from 1961 as the Midland Town Council) until 1970. By the 1960s, the building had become quite dilapidated and, after the 1968 Meckering earthquake, came under threat of demolition.
Some restoration work was undertaken on the building in the 1970s and 80s, with major work commencing in 1995. The first part of the restored complex, comprising Council Chambers, meeting rooms and offices was officially opened by the Governor Major General, Michael Jeffery in 1997. After further Commonwealth Government grants the second and final stage of the project was finished and opened in grand style with a Mayoral Ball on April 1, 2000. Between 1995 and 2000, approximately $3 million was spent on restoring and conserving the Town Hall.
