Securing the future of Kingston City Hall

Officially opened in 1963 as the Moorabbin Town Hall, the Kingston City Hall was designed as an architectural landmark and reflection of the growth and prosperity of the district.

The venue is owned and operated by Council and remains the City of Kingston’s largest cultural venue. It hosts a variety of performing arts and cultural events, as well as civic functions, school concerts, markets, meetings, business expos and live music.

Council believes this iconic building has great potential and is committed to meeting the community’s future needs for performing arts, events and community meeting spaces.

Following recent upgrades to the foyer and outdoor forecourt areas, Council now seeks to explore further building improvement opportunities such as:

  • Creating a greater range of spaces suited to hosting music, conferences, meetings and events
  • Enhancing the building façade (external appearance)
  • Improving back stage and stage facilities
  • Increasing the Grand Hall seating capacity
  • Installing a new fly (or theatrical rigging) system
  • Installing a new green room (off-stage waiting and changing areas)
  • Installing or improving elevator/s (passengers and goods)
  • Preserving and increasing the visibility of the Wurlitzer theatre organ
  • Restoring the theatre stage
  • Upgrading the commercial kitchen

Your feedback will inform the Kingston City Hall Master Plan (Stage 2) which will outline opportunities and priorities for future generations and be considered by Council.

To thank you for completing the survey, we invite you to opt-in for a chance to win two full price tickets to a Kingston Arts Theatre show of your choice, valued at up to $100 (*conditions apply).

Surveys close 5pm on Sunday 8 September, 2019.
