The Performance Space

Hosting the majority of the Wheeler Centre's program, the Performance Space is the Wheeler Centre's most iconic venue.

With a capacity of 230 patrons, a fully furnished green room and extensive audio-visual capability, the Performance Space is one of the most competitively priced venues in Melbourne's CBD. A Theatre Style layout in the Performance Space is perfect for panels, awards or lectures, and is their most popular set up as it allows for the most patrons within the space.

With the use of their partition, however, they can create a more intimate feel, perfect for a smaller presentation and a crowd of up to 50.
