The Way Back

The Future is Uncertain Unwritten


Bendigo’s flagship performing arts venues - The Capital, The Engine Room and Ulumbarra Theatre - were closed  in March 2020. At Bendigo Venues & Events we have reimagined the way we connect with performing arts audiences and have produced and delivered a range of virtual events, seen in Bendigo and far beyond. Our online programs have supported local artists and provided connection and joy, during a time of isolation for many in our community. As we navigate our return to presenting live performances in our venues we continue to discover  new opportunities for our team, our audiences and our community. This Summer, we will be inviting community members to play a role in our future, through participation in surveys and focus groups. Simply sign up to our newsletter at to hear the latest news, ideas and innovation on the horizon at Bendigo Venues & Events, and join us on “the way back” – our new way forward. 

BV&E acknowledges the Dja Dja Wurrung and Taungurung Peoples as the traditional custodians of the lands where our venues stand and where we share stories through art and culture.

We acknowledge and pay respect to their Elders past, present and future.
