Performance

Boroondara Arts presents a year-long Performing Arts program curated collectively across our venues Hawthorn Arts Centre and Kew Court House.

In 2018 we invite you to join us for a performing arts program bursting with music from around the globe.

From classical to contemporary, there will be music to dance to, dream to and escape through…from renowned Australian icons to exciting emerging artists and one-off creative collaborations.

Families

There’s no better way to unite the family than to experience a fun, exciting, laugh out loud moment together!

From songs to sing along with, to side-splitting jokes, or the magic of story telling through classical music, our program for families has something for everyone.

For those young ones who like to get involved, any one of our great school holiday workshops will get them off their play stations and into piles of Lego or dancing like there’s no one watching.

Join the Boroondara Arts Kids’ Club and be the first to know all about the exciting programs and events at the Hawthorn Arts Centre, Kew Court House, Town Hall Gallery and other locations across Boroondara presented especially for kids!
