Bendigo’s beautiful theatre, which opened in 2015, is built around the shell of the historic old gaol, and features a state-of-the-art auditorium with seating for 950 people.

With spacious foyers and excellent facilities, Ulumbarra is the venue for our Friday and Saturday evening events, as well as our Closing Event on Sunday.

In 2017, we also feature a series of ticketed events in Ulumbarra Theatre and the adjacent Strategem Studio.

The foyer will host our Good Life Sunday program.

It is a short walk from View Street, with nearby access to parking at The Capital and in the precinct. There is a bar inside the complex, which will be open for evening events.
