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.
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!
Both inside our amazing venues and outside in your local neighbourhoods, our Participate program offers a variety of low cost and free creative opportunities for you to get involved with in 2018.
See what’s coming up in our Participate program.
Town Hall Gallery has an exciting program of exhibitions, public programs and events planned for 2018. The curated exhibitions will showcase works from The Collection, commissioned works by new artists and group exhibitions of work by contemporary artists.
Opening hours vary depending on what’s on at Kew Court House.
