The Twyford Hall Complex Ltd
Varies depending on events
The Twyford Hall Complex Ltd is a registered not-for-profit arts charity that manages The Twyford, a Performing Arts venue and community hall on the corner of Market and Beach Streets in Merimbula. The organisation manages the complex on behalf of the trustee. It is headed by a Board of Management and the venue is operated by professional contract staff. We welcome volunteers who would use their skills as ushers (see the show for free!), box office assistants or bar staff (RSA required). Training is provided for all roles. A Police Check and Working with Children Check may be required for some roles. First Aid/Apply CPR and Food Hygiene certificates an advantage.
Twyford Hall is a heritage-listed 180 seat brick building built in 1931, with a flat wooden floor auditorium and raised stage that has inbuilt all-LED stage lighting and sound systems. Removable seating and tables are available for use. There are bar wall heaters for winter heating and ceiling fans for summer cooling. The space is used for art exhibitions, workshops, meetings, screenings and weddings. There is a full commercial kitchen and supper room adjacent to the Hall for all your catering needs. The venue is accessible via the Beach St entrance, and there is a unisex accessible toilet and parent room available in addition to male and female toilets.
Theatre Twyford is a new 199 raked seat proscenium arch theatre under construction and expected to open in 2023. It has a 9m wide x 5m high arch and the stage is 7.4m in depth, with extensive wing spaces on both sides and a loading dock that leads directly onto both the Theatre and Hall backstages. The Theatre will have an Upper and Lower Dressing room each with morrors, benches, chairs, shower, toilet and 2 handbasins. The Lower Dressing room and stage are wheelchair accessible via a ramp from the Market St Stage Door. The Theatre Foyer and Auditorium are accessed by the public via stairs and a lift from the Market St main entrance.
The Foyer Bar/Cafe (opening in 2023) will operate before and during events and can be hired as its own function space when the Theatre is not in use. It can seat up to 50 people and can be used for launches and small functions.
