Variety Concert at Smithfield Hostel

A variety concert, arrange by Mrs. Muriel Ashworth, was presented by the Elizabeth Singers and guest artists at the Smithfield Hostel last week.

The programme included items from the Singers and also vocal and piano solos and duets.

Hit of the evening was the lively playing of well-known tunes by Messrs. Jack and Graham Dawson on xylophones and piano accordion.

“Uncle Rowley” of Channel 9’s D.A.W.S. Club was a most entertaining compare.

Do you have a story to share about the Smithfield Hostel?
 
If so the Migration Museum in conjunction with the University of Adelaide would love to hear from you.
In partnership with the University of Adelaide the Migration Museum is investigating South Australia’s migrant hostels, reception centres and camps.

This will include extensive archival research, a significant oral history project, and documentation of resources and material history. Prior to beginning research the Migration Museum held limited information on a small selection of hostels in South Australia. Through this project we will collect more comprehensive information covering all migrant hostels operating in South Australia between 1949 and 1985.
