I went to enjoy the performance of the talented pianist and composer Ludovico Einaudi. The acoustic sound in the Hammer Hall was perfect. The view was perfect too. The theatre really gave the deserved honor to the artist .

Went to Hamer hall to see the Hollies. Beautiful concert hall. We got $30 tickets at tixs st 6.00. You have to be a arts centre by 4:30 pm to get discount tickets. They also have 20 tickets at $30. We sat in dress circle, great view of stage and very comfortable seats.

Ursula is such a great entertainer - down to earth, real, funny and current. The Arts Centre is a great venue, but I wish their booking process involved virtual tickets or tickets on your mobile, rather than having to collect tickets from the box office in printed form...

We have seen Moira and the team before. But not at the Fairfax. This is a really good small theatre 🎭. I was impressed. The theatre suited this type of show - small intimate and kind of off by itself. It felt like entering an alternate area. Which is ideal for glory box. We liked it.

In the Fairfax Studio - Starring Le Gateau Chocolat and Jonny Woo - (Drag Queens) Hilarious! They sing and dance extremely well. It was a brilliant night out with many costume changes and some audience participation. A fantastic night out - thanks :)

We took our son to see operation ouch in the Playhouse Theatre. A very well put together show, kids were fully engaged, we all learnt a lot along the way and were entertained as well. Most impressive was the after show photo opportunity with the stars, superbly well organised. This was unexpected but greatly appreciated. Theatre seats are most comfortable... More
