TYALGUM Hall is internationally acclaimed for its magnificent acoustics.

That's why it has been used to house features of the Tyalgum Festival, with exquisite music played by the creme-de-la-creme of classical music and the light feet of Australia's top ballroom dancers gracing its floor.

Yet this 104 year-old building erected by the people of Tyalgum and maintained by their offspring to this day is in danger of falling to ruin.

Tyalgum resident Solar Chapel said the village needs $100,000 to make repairs.

"This treasured building means so much to us," he said.

"Many of the residents have a keen interest in preserving it for further performances and for future generations.

"It is very well used and has always been cared for and operated by the community."

The building has no regular financial support from Tweed Shire Council and as an emergency centre, it also needs toilets, particularly disabled toilets along with a new roof.

Residents are holding a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses and this will be drawn during the town's celebration of spring on Sunday, October 7.

"There will be many activities stalls, face painting, farm animals display top live music.

Raffle tickets can be purchased from Tyalgum businesses, including the hotel, newsagent and general store.

Anyone wishing to donate can contact the Tyalgum Hall Committee on 02 6679 3377.
