Her Majesty's Ballarat
This much-loved theatre is the cultural heart of Ballarat. Over the past 143 years some of the country’s best-known performers – and emerging talent – have graced its stage. However, $15 million is needed for urgent works to bring Her Majesty’s Ballarat up to a safe and professional standard – to take the theatre into the next century, to continue to provide a grand performance venue for future generations of performers.
Her Majesty’s Ballarat hosts 15,000 performers and 75,000 patrons each year.
Note: Heritage Victoria has provided $2 million for conservation works which are currently underway, and the City of Ballarat has committed $5.3 million in its 2018–19 Budget.
