April 14 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Before the Federation Convention of 1896, held in Bathurst, political debate was taking place, influenced by the discussions of the day. What do the flour mill workers of Keppel Street and shearers have in common? Unionism and the fight for workers’ rights. It was on Keppel Street where meetings at the Masonic Hall would take place. The beginnings of political movements were debated, discussions on a woman’s right to vote, and meetings of workers all took place, and members of the government of the day came to address their constituents. What were the debates that took place? Who attended the meetings? Come and hear about the debates at the Masonic Hall and the people with Kim Bagot-Hiller. If
only the walls could talk! Complimentary glass of wine on arrival.
