The Handbury Auditorium
Our auditorium has tiered seating for 500 patrons and is particularly suitable for acoustic music. The fully equipped proscenium arch stage is 9m wide with a 3.5m forestage extending on the same level to the front row of seats; an arrangement which brings the audience closer to the performers and avoids the artificial divide of a raised stage.
Over the past few years, we have presented a huge variety of touring performances such as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, the Australian Ballet’s Dancers Company, international comedians, concerts of all styles and of course numerous plays.
The Centre is also the natural choice for many local productions and school concerts as well as the long running Hamilton Eisteddfod.
Our Steinway concert grand piano is one of the best in the state and has been played by artists such as Roger Woodward, Geoffrey Tozer, Michael Kieran Harvey, Paul Lewis and Paul Grabowski.
