Help disadvantaged young people find their voice

Making your way over the Princes Bridge, stepping into the red plush foyer, the iconic spire soaring above – entering Arts Centre Melbourne is a memorable experience within itself. 

Now imagine each of your guests, excitement and anticipation building, as they enter one of Melbourne’s most beloved institutions, ready to participate in your event.

When it comes to finding a unique venue for your next event, Arts Centre Melbourne always leaves a lasting impression. Whether it’s an elegant cocktail affair in the Pavilion, city lights glittering in the distance, a conference designed to engage and inspire, or even a simple meeting, your first experience at Arts Centre Melbourne is bound to impress on all fronts.

The team at this iconic venue are experts at thinking and acting dynamically. From public performances to private events, they know how to deliver on every detail, every time. Each year brings a new performance, new menus and new exciting offerings. And 2019 is going to be something truly special.

Along with a season of high-anticipated productions, the full troupe of the renowned Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo are coming to Arts Centre Melbourne for a modern take on Swan Lake with LAC, as presented by The Australian Ballet. Christopher Wheeldon’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland©, Verdi’s Rigoletto and a run of beloved favourite The Nutcracker are just a few of the highlights. And with each performance comes a new tailored menu developed by the chefs at Arts Centre Melbourne, available for your private event.

Throughout the year, you can include these unique and bespoke menus as part of your event. Imagine serving your guests honey baked camembert with bacon and rosemary with a crisp apple salad, as inspired by Swan Lake. Or succulently smoked duck breast with a knockout Madeira and black garlic dressing from the menu celebrating Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland©.

Even the more ‘traditional’ offerings have undergone a revamp. The new DDP menu goes well beyond the norm of standard corporate offerings, promising to impress your guests. A hot option could include smoked barbecued roast beef with onion chutney and rosemary chat potatoes, followed by chocolate, pistachio and raspberry cream eclairs with glazed fondant. Or, for the more health conscious, Tasmanian salmon niçoise salad with trimmed French beans, new potatoes, black olives, trussed tomato and egg. These beautiful dishes are a mere sample of the scope of options available to those looking to host a truly impressive event in 2019.

Arts Centre Melbourne shuns the one-size-fits-all approach; delivering personalised service, flexible offerings, an incredible array of entertainment, and menus that are unique, approachable and memorable.
