Money for auditorium refurbishment
Ararat Arts Precinct users will be able to enjoy better amenities and a more comfortable theatre experience after funding from the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.
Member for Wannon Dan Tehan said he was delighted $25,000 would go to refurbishing Ararat Town Hall auditorium by providing 56 new seats in a balcony section.
“Ararat has a thriving arts community and this funding completes the refurbishment of the auditorium,” he said.
“The auditorium is a site of local social and historic significance, with the balcony especially representing a connection to the original town hall auditorium. That’s why it is so important to see 56 seats in the balcony being replaced, so Ararat community can continue to enjoy this wonderful hub for the arts and live performance.”
Ararat Rural City Council is managing an overall theatre refurbishment of $50,000.
