Palais Theatre $1 Community Reservations Applications Announced for 2019/2020

Community Purpose Reservations at the Palais Theatre is a City of Port Phillip initiative in partnership with Live Nation Australia Venues.

This initiative makes the hire of the Palais Theatre more accessible to groups that may not otherwise be able to use the venue due to hire costs.

Up to eight community purpose reservations can be granted per year for dates in 2019 and 2020. Successful applicants for a community booking will have venue hire costs reduced to $1, enabling a range of users to experience this extraordinary venue. Please keep in mind event costs (ushers, security, cleaning, rigging, electricity etc) still apply. You can find out what event costs you may need to budget for your event HERE. If you require more information on venue hire, dates and costs while making your decision to apply, please send your enquiry to palaisbookings@livenationvenues.com.au.
