Space overview

A stunning boutique theatre & performance space

After extensive refurbishment, Shirley Burke Theatre relaunched in 2012 as a state of the art multipurpose arts venue for the community. Featuring a street front gallery, studio space and 167 seat theatre. Our much loved theatre is warm and intimate. With a full range of sound, lighting and AV facilities available, a workshop space, dressing room, a stunning bar, box office and sprawling foyer with gorgeous fittings and furnishings.

We are located within a minutes walk from Parkdale train station, across the road from a plethora of wonderful cafes and shops, and a 5 minute walk from the beach :-)
