“There’s an amazing array of performing arts experiences on offer here in Bendigo. Children’s and family theatre, intimate theatre, physical theatre – it’s all happening. Even the talented Flying Fruit Fly Circus and Circus Oz are taking to our stages!” David Lloyd, Manager of Capital Venues & Events.

With over 107,000 people coming through the doors for over 380 performances in 2017, Bendigo is continuing to shine when it comes to performing arts.

From grassroots venues featuring unique and specialty performances, through to the historic Capital Theatre and the magnificent 1,000-seat Ulumbarra Theatre, there is diversity to both the venues and season program that covers all ages and interests.

The multi award-winning stage of Ulumbarra Theatre comes to life with an array of shows. From the contemporary duo Angus and Julia Stone, to the classical artistry of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra Victoria, every performance is guaranteed to move you.

The Regional Centre for Culture program, including the Enlighten Projection Festival, adds exciting new performances to the already jam-packed program. Plus iconic annual events, such as the Bendigo Writer’s Festival and the Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, fill the theatre precinct and city streets with awe-inspiring entertainment.
