Memories of the old Cromwell Memorial Hall

This page was created to acknowledge the significant role that the old Cromwell Memorial Hall has played in the Cromwell community.  

For many years, this building has stood as a witness to the passage of time, and a repository of countless memories. On 29 April 2024, a farewell ceremony was held to celebrate its legacy and bid it a fond farewell.

We invite you to take a moment to reflect on the memories it holds. Please share your own special memories of times gone by in the Hall.  You are welcome to include photos and videos.  Please note, these memories will be publicly available.   

If you need assistance uploading photos or other documents, feel free to pop in to your local library and staff will help you.  



Thank you for sharing your memories with us.

    In 2018 the brilliant Shapeshifter played a rare gig in Central Otago, they chose Cromwell Memorial Hall as a venue. A great night of Drum and Bass rattling the Hall's old walls!

    I was 9 when the old hall was built.

    Even then we were involved in fund-raising to meet the cost. The town had a queen carnival- with a Sports Princess, a Town Princess and a Country Princess.
