In partnership with the ACT Government, artsACT, and our resident artists and organisations, we’re restoring the heritage character of these truly unique precincts, and realising their full potential as arts centres. We’re looking forward to opening with a bang.”

Putting my cheapskate hat on I would have definitely wandered over to this for a look but the $20 ticket price has put me off. Weak of me I know.

All the same, I hope it goes well.

yep just thought the same, I live up the road and thought that sounded like fun for tonight. but 2 tickets + some monies for bar/stalls. makes the chances of a drop in fairly unlikely 🙁

must be trying for more of a whole night event. makes more sense then
