Welcome to Upper Lansdowne Hall – A Great Place for Community Events

If you have never been to Upper Lansdowne you are in for a real treat. The hall itself is a lovely, traditional timber building in the middle of the small village at the head of the Lansdowne valley. The landscape is spectacular, with majestic volcanic outcrops amid rolling green pastures and lush native vegetation, set against the stunning sandstone backdrop of the Lansdowne Escarpment. It is justly called ‘The Valley of Views’!

The Upper Lansdowne Hall is a hub for the community, used for meetings and entertainment all of kinds, from the weekly craft group to coffee mornings, trivia nights, concerts, plays and bush dances.

Come to one of our events and we promise you’ll have a great time! – You could also become more involved in the local community if you wish – you’ll be made very welcome.

We sing mainly folk or Bluegrass with some of our members playing along on a guitar, banjo, ukulele, washboard, harmonica and various other noisemakers. We are not very serious but aim to have a fun night.

Elephant Sessions are coming to UL straight from big shows at Woodford and this is one act you don’t want to miss.

To position them among the bands that have played at UL, they are definitely about having a good time. More»»


The Barleyshakes formed in Dublin in 1995, then the band moved to the Sunshine Coast in Australia in 2000.

Their music is Irish at it core with tasteful interpretations and modern influences, infusing it with a fresh and contemporary spirit. Most importantly they love to have fun in that inimitable, Irish way. More»»


We’ve had some great French-Canadian bands play at Upper Lansdowne with Mélisande in April 2019 having most of the hall up dancing.

É.T.É are another who offer a very dynamic and modern vision of Québec traditional music. Their musical arrangements are shaded with influences of folk, progressive rock and classical music interpreted on fiddle, Irish bouzouki and cello. More»»


* * Sorry folks, Hat Fitz & Cara have had to cancel this show. They’ll be back in 2021. * *

Hat Fitz & Cara gave a fantastic show to a packed UL hall in late 2017, so it’s great to have them back. More»»


They are from Scotland but the music is not!

An intoxicating, life-affirming mix of Gypsy and Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms and virtuoso performances. Combining the energy and passion of world folk music with the excitement and soul of improvisation, the band will draw you in, turn you inside out, and leave you smiling uncontrollably – all in the space of one tune.
