The Tom Atkin Hall is the only community-owned, not for profit hall on the Gold Coast and is a beacon for the rich history of our great suburb. In rejuvenating the space, we’re not only able to offer the many community groups that utilise the space with better facilities, but we’re also setting the tone for the future of our suburb that puts the long-term residents and the way of life we’ve come to love, FIRST.


What are we doing to upgrade the Tom Atkin Hall?

We’re re-invigorating the exterior of the building to a fresh new state, reminiscent of a vibrant 50's art deco cinema, while also introducing a number of functional upgrades including disabled access + facilities. To do so however, we need the support of the Tugun community to raise funds!


You can make a tax-deductible donation of just $5 or more via the below secure site:

The new website for the Tom Atkin Hall is a 'What's On' guide to all of the cultural and community activities happening in this iconic Tugun space. We look forward to welcoming you the Tom Atkin for a myriad of arts and culture events in 2023.

As much as anything, we need to get the word out to all of our residents past and present about your hall rejuvenation project. A conversation in the street or a share on your social media may very well connect us with the people we need, to keep the build going.
