Albany Entertainment Centre works

Albany Entertainment Centre works

The Arts and Culture Trust is delighted to see the commencement of roof remediation works at its iconic Albany Entertainment Centre. 

Works are set to commence at the striking venue on Monday 8 April however it will be business as usual for the venue during the works.

The State Government will spend $650,000 to ensure the roof is secure at the Great Southern venue, which sits within a harsh ocean front environment where strong winds and salt affect the building.

It comes after an engineering report in late 2023 recommended improvements to prevent the roof deteriorating. The State Government has responded swiftly by funding and contracting a construction company to carry out the important maintenance.

The Minister for Culture and the Arts, David Templeman, said that this indicates the State Government’s commitment to keeping this important community venue open and available to the people of the Great Southern.

Manager Albany Entertainment Centre, Drew Dymond added: 'Works such as these were so important and ensure our world-class venue will be maintained for the ongoing enjoyment of the community, for many years to come!'

“There may be some restricted access areas arrangements at the venue, but normal operations and our planned performance schedule with continue.”

The roof remediation works project is being managed by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) and is scheduled for completion in mid-2024. Other stages of the project to upgrade Albany Entertainment Centre will follow.
