Ben Hall Weekend Festival May 2013 Newsletter


Welcome to the third in the series of e-newsletters for the Ben Hall Raid Weekend Festival. It continues to be received with great interest. The raid by the Hall gang was extensively covered in the early newspapers right across Australia, including as far away as Western Australia. It even made the papers in Great Britain.

More historic displays have been promised since the last e-newsletter. The Bathurst District Historical Society Museum (below) and the Bathurst Court House will be the centre of a large range of static bushranging,
colonial and historic displays which will be exhibited on Saturday afternoon 28th September. 

The museum features on the Society’s letterhead (right).

NOTE - If you are missing any back issues of these Ben Hall Weekend Festival e-newsletters which commenced in March 2013 feel free to email and state which issues you are missing.

Have you booked for the dinner yet? as well as any accommodation you require – book early.

Alan McRae, FAIHA, President Bathurst District Historical Society
