Eolian Hall Improvement Project

We need your help!

Dear Members and Supporters,

We successfully applied for and recently received $21,000 grant from the Victoria Government to do some works at Eolian Hall in Lygon Street, Carlton North.  This amount of money, although very welcome is really not enough to do a full restoration of the front of the hall. We are reaching out to our community to partner with us to complete this important work, which will provide benefits for many years to come.


As you can appreciate, the hall is our lifeblood for raising much needed ongoing revenue from our functions and hall hires, all with the aim of providing benefits to our members and supporters and sufficient income to pay our regular bills, which never cease.

We are looking to members and supporters of the Società Isole Eolie, to either contribute materials, professional labour or donations to help us complete the works. The following is a list of the repair/replacement jobs we need to complete, which are, as yet unfunded:

  1. A new modern front entrance to replace the old doors;
  2. Replacement of the existing wrought iron gates to provide higher, lockable gates;
  3. Scaffolding to undertake the restoration of the walls, fences and windows that are visible from the road.
    We need scaffolding to reach the 10m heights for a period of a few weeks;
  4. Replacement of the carpets on the stairwell to the upstairs function room;
  5. Curtains and drapes for the recently renovated upstairs function room and
  6. Electrical and plumbing work.

We would be very grateful if you could help us out in any way, and if you are not able to provide any of the above we would greatly appreciate a kind donation.
Please send us an email at info@eoliemelbourne.com.au if you can assist us in any of the above items

Kind regards,

Sam Portelli,
