The Old Church on the Hill

The Old Church on the Hill is located on the corner of Harkness and Russell Streets, Quarry Hill, Bendigo.  The Singer/Songwriter Showcase events, staged there by the BB&RMF crew on a semi-regular basis, are an opportunity to enjoy a House Concert vibe in a public venue.  The door charge is generally $15 for adults ($10 concession) and, although refreshments are available for sale, the focus is on the music.  Proceeds from drink sales go to supporting Bendigo Sustainability Group - BSG (https://www.facebook.com/BendigoSustainabilityGroup) and also to support our Festival to keep presenting these magnificent musicians. Sound production is supplemented at the Old Church on the Hill by our friends at Musos Stuff (https://www.facebook.com/Musos.Stuff) and 100% of the door takings are able to be shared between the performers with thanks to our valued sponsors at Senior Helpers Central Victoria (https://www.facebook.com/SeniorHelpersCV).
