Did you know Her Majesty’s Theatre is mainland Australia’s best preserved and oldest continuously operating theatre?

In fact, it was built in 1875 – making it the most intact of only four surviving nineteenth-century public theatres in Australia.

Each year more than 75,000 patrons are entertained by more than 15,000 performers who take to its stage.

It has become a much-loved venue which has played host to some of the world’s best performers while holding a special place in the heart of generations of local residents and performers.

Parts of the structure of the building are potentially unsafe and do not meet current standards.

$15 million is needed for urgent works to bring Her Majesty’s Theatre Ballarat up to safe and professional standard so this ageing asset can continue to operate as the performing arts centre at the cultural heart of Ballarat and the wider region for another century.
