HOT: Hamer Hall reopening + Giveaway!

 HamerHall HOT: Hamer Hall reopening + Giveaway!

Hamer Hall at the Arts Centre Melbourne could arguably be called the heartbeat of Melbourne’s arts scene so it was exciting to see the New Hamer Hall recently unveiled after more than two years of work. The concert venue now has new, improved acoustics, refurbished auditorium and foyers plus some new restaurants which I’m excited to try out (good pre-theatre dining being a bit of a Holy Grail for me).

To celebrations around Hamer Hall reopening haven’t been limited to a weekend – it’s a festival with lots of great local and international acts coming to grace the stage all the way to October.

Giveaway! Thanks to the Arts Centre Melbourne I have some tickets to some concerts which are part of the New Hamer Hall Opening Season

  50. Hi Joyce, love reading your blog and keeping up to date with what’s happening in Melbourne. I’ve recently returned from doing volunteer work in Africa and want to live in CapeTown full time but that will take awhile to sort out. In the meantime, I’d love to go and see the CapeTown Opera – I’ll get my bit of Africa wherever I can!
