WORKS are about to be­gin on the $6 mil­lion up­grade of the cul­tural hub of the Sun­shine Coast.

The multi-mil­lion dol­lar re­fur­bish­ment of the Coast’s per­form­ing arts and cul­tural cen­tre will be­gin this month.

The works are co-funded by Sun­shine Coast Coun­cil and the Fed­eral Govern­ment and will in­clude an up­graded theatre, covered deck ar­eas, a covered en­trance and func­tion room.

Coun­cil­lor Tim Dwyer said to en­sure the re­fur­bish­ment was com­pleted as soon as pos­si­ble, the cen­tre would be closed un­til April 23 next year.

“The over­all scale and scopes of work meant that to try and do any­thing else would have been un­safe and im­prac­ti­cal,” Cr Dwyer said.

“The only way to get it done was to close it down.

“The com­mu­nity have been ab­so­lutely won­der­ful in get­ting be­hind The Events Cen­tre and help­ing us se­cure the fund­ing needed.”
