Overview

Beneath the ballerina’s skirt is one of Melbourne most loved, most iconic venues. Arts Centre Melbourne is regular host to world class performances and spectacles. And you too can host your own spectacular event within our beautiful venue.

Picture hosting a gala dinner on the State Theatre stage, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra serenading your guests, the deep red of the theatre cascading behind. Imagine holding your Christmas party in the Pavilion, with its rich tones, stylish interior and balcony overlooking the Melbourne skyline. Or perhaps you’re after a simple, beautiful boardroom, bathed in natural light for your next meeting?

Our venue is as versatile as it is unique. With no two spaces the same, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to finding the perfect fit for your event. Boasting 10 function rooms, four theatres and dedicated pre-function areas, each space has its own distinct personality.

Working tirelessly to make your event dreams a reality, our dedicated team will work with you to plan every last detail. From delicious tailor-made menus, to engaging audio-visual presentations, every element will be carefully considered to ensure your event is one to remember.
