The People’s Hall: Civic Hall from early concepts to future possibilities

The Peoples Hall FBT

Put it in your diary now! This exhibition traces the Civic Hall from the massive predecessor halls (Alfred and Coliseum) through its design and construction to its heyday when it was the key place for community, civic, and commercial celebrations and events.

The exhibition opens at Backspace Gallery, Alfred Deakin Place (behind the Art Gallery of Ballarat) on 4 June and runs till 21 June.

Gallery hours are 12 – 4pm, Thursdays to Sundays.

It will be a great show, with spectacular historical items, costumes, artworks, cartoons, videos and soundtracks from some of the great bands that performed there.

Entry is free and everyone is welcome!
