Arts under my feet

Story of change: From Ventry dance hall to Penny’s Pottery

We can not only observe change in people but also in buildings. The Ventry hall on the Dingle Peninsula is one such example. It was built by a family Martin and opened in 1935 as a dance hall. It was only one of several dance halls that were built in that time on the DingleContinue reading “Story of change: From Ventry dance hall to Penny’s Pottery”
