The Byron Theatre

The Theatre is an outstanding venue for performing artists, film screenings and conferences. In its first year, the 246-seat amphitheatre style theatre won the 2003 Dolphin Award for Best Venue.

The tiered seating can be retracted to leave an open space with a 360 meter square sprung-dance floor suitable for dance events or a cabaret style set-up. Now, with an awesome new sound system in the Theatre and a comprehensive ticketing system with increasing online sales – the Byron Theatre is ideal for your next event!

The Byron Markets

The Byron Markets are on the 1st of every month,with over 300 stalls there’s lots of activities for kids and plenty of entertainment for everyone. Also on 3rd Sunday of Nov, Dec & Jan

The focus is on locally produced craft and food stalls, but the Market also includes interesting imports from around the region and as far a field as Africa and Asia!

Each month two local charities collect donations at the entrances to the market, giving a major boost to their fundraising. There are initiatives in place to ensure waste minimisation and maximum recycling. The Centre team is currently working to improve the Market site by planting trees and native plants.
