First night back after shutdown.

We were very impressed by the efforts made to keep everybody safe.The program was Kutcha Edwards and Daniel Juargi with a drummer whose name I've forgotten.[sorry] It was a fantastic evening.The only thing that needs to improve is the wine list.

Lovely Venue for Performances
Jan 2020
Performances are fabulous at this venue. The only problem is the queues to be served at the candy bar, before a show & at intermission. It is not designed to cater for the amount of people. Queues are extremely slow. If you order a coffee, you don't have the time to drink it before going in for the performance.

Comedians, plays, dancers, music, book signings, they are all being seen at the Frankston Art Centre. This theatre is comfortable and great views from every seat. Check their website to see whats playing when you visit, you won't regret it.

Calisthenics Christmas Concert
Nov 2019
A great venue with comfortable chairs, friendly staff who were very attentive to all our needs. Left my tickets at home, no worries, had new printed ones In Two minutes.
They have cushions for children so they can see. A really good food/bar area for a pre show drink. A good size car park underneath and also across the road.

Amazing street art
May 2019
Great spot for an eclectic array of performances over the years. But it’s worth visiting for the street art located on its walls outside
