Concert wonderful, but guests should be warned about the climb up stairs to seats in the balcony. They do warn you, but I still witnessed people struggling up the stairs with more 'able bodied' friends.

So fantastic to have such a quality venue, entertainment and staff in regional Victoria. A great variety of entertainment and multipurpose rooms/spaces or conferences and/or private gatherings.

The theatre is designed well and allows good viewing from all areas. Comfy seats, good sound. A great venue to attend performances of all types in Wangaratta.

I travel through Wangaratta on a Saturday, staying overnight in a local motel. I like to wander down to see the current exhibition and have a coffee around 3pm. Some Saturday afternoons the coffee shop is open and others it is closed. When it is open I enjoy the coffee and enjoy the break after the walk from the motel.

do the whole show and dinner or coffee experience. It really is a lovely place - the 500 seat centre is very comfortable and hosts some worthwhile shows. In the cafe - the servings are enormous, especially the BLT - I only got through half of this,
