Marrickville Town Hall

The current NSW Health order states that indoor venue capacities are one person per 4m2.    

Scaffolding will be in place along the exterior of the Marrickville Town Hall from November 2021 through to June 2022 while works are performed on the facade. While this should not affect access, it will obstruct the view of the Town Hall's exterior.
